READ: 2 Peter 3:12-18
That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
A quiet time makes you read the most important book in the world. The Bible is the most important book in the world. It is the most outstanding volume known to the human race.
Professor M. Montiero-Williams, in comparing other religious books to the Bible said,
"...place your own Holy Bible on the right side - all by itself, all alone - and with a wide gap between them. For…there is a gulf between it and the so-called sacred books of the East ..."
A quiet time, is your personal School of the Word. During your quiet time, you sit and learn at the feet of the Greatest Teacher Jesus left us, the Holy Spirit. He will teach you many things and show you many wonderful revelations in the Word (John 16:12-13).
Your personal quiet time gives you the opportunity to add knowledge to your faith. During your quiet time, you increase in your personal knowledge of the Scriptures (2 Peter 1:5).
Above all, you develop the most important relationship of your life by spending quality time with God. A natural relationship develops between any two people who spend quality time together. Having a quiet time makes you develop the most important personal habit of all time: a regular time with your Creator. You draw near to God and He draws near to you (James 4:8). I have a quiet time everyday and I spend quality time with the Lord. You will be blessed as you have your quiet time because you will experience the presence of God.
