My pastor has been teaching quite a bit on the importance of having quiet time with God.
It is vital and should also be seen as quality time.
In quietness and confidence shall be your strength ~ Proverbs
This is not your routine scripture-a-day devotional situation.
It’s a time to give and receive so much.
I’d like to share some of what I have learnt with you.
Quiet time essentials:
-specific time set aside
What are some guidelines for spending quiet time?
-wait on God
-meditate and memorise
-write down what God says
-spend some time in prayer with God
And finally… when spending time alone with God, use this acronym to identify what you need to apply :
Ask yourself – is there any of the following?
S- SIN to confess
P- PROMISE to claim
A- ATTITUDE to change
C- COMMAND to obey
E- EXAMPLE to follow
P- PRAYER to pray
E- ERROR to avoid
T- TRUTH to believe
S- SOMETHING to praise God for
Then apply it
Hope you enjoy.
My prayer today: Psalm 119:18 –
Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
