Have You Made This Critical Quiet Time Decision?

Quiet Time Study Bible

Consistency in the devotional life is all about the present. It’s the humble acknowledgment that our Creator must be central in our lives today.

It’s not that we need God’s help; it’s that we are completely helpless without God.

If we truly believe this, then we must make a decision: Will we seek Him today, or will we let other people and circumstances set our priorities?

We answer this question in our actions… today.

Simple advice is often the most helpful. Case in point: The key to having a quiet time every day is to have a quiet time this day. It really is that simple.

Has it been a while since you’ve met with God? If so, that’s no reason to stay away any longer. Are you reluctant to make long-term commitments? Don’t worry. This one ends at midnight.

Here it is: Decide to meet with God today. And then do it.

If you’re not sure where to begin, How to Have a Quiet Time in 2 Easy Steps will show you one simple way to get started.

Establishing a consistent daily quiet time comes down to this decision every single day. But no day is ever more critical than today.

Practical Application

From a practical standpoint, today began when you woke up. It ends when you go to bed. Sometime between those two points spend at least a few minutes with God. Decide now that nothing will keep that from happening. Better yet, why not do it now?
