Quiet Time With God


10 Reasons You Need A Daily Quiet Time (Devotions) With God.

1. It is an opportunity to fellowship with God. Your primary fellowship is with God, our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. God desires to fellowship with you on a personal basis (1 John 1:3)

2. It puts you in an atmosphere to hear the voice of God. As you read His Word, God will speak to you through it. It can also give you direction or counsel that you need right now. You are privileged to enjoy the counsel of ďthe only wise GodĒ (Isaiah 20:31).

3. It gives you strength to resist the temptations of the day. Those who stay in Godís presence have the strength to overcome their weaknesses. A consistent Quiet Time with God is a great deterrent to sin because of your knowledge of the Word, and the strength to carry it out (Isaiah 40:10).

4. It helps you to know more about God. You know more of His character, His views and His heart (Isaiah 54:13).

5. It increases your knowledge of the Bible. Each day reading of Godís Word, increases your knowledge of Godís promises, His commandments and His person (2 Timothy 3:15).

6. It helps you to be more like God when you learn more of Him. Without fellowship with Christ, you cannot conform to His image (2 Corinthians 3:18).

7. It gives you joy. As you fellowship with God, your joy life increases. In Godís presence is fullness of joy. In crisis, Quiet Time is indispensable for the presence of God is your source of joy, calmness and comfort (Psalms 16:11).

8. It imparts peace. The fellowship with God and His Word give peace (Isaiah 26:3).

9. It helps you to know more about Godís love for you. In His presence, the love of God is more real because you are daily in contact with God (1 John 3:1).

10. A good consistent Quiet Time is also a safeguard from backsliding. It keeps the fire burning (Isaiah 43:22).
