3 Reasons Why You Should Be Having Quiet Time With God

Jesus had quiet time with God.
(Mark 1:35)

If having a quiet time with God was important to Jesus, it should be important to us.
So what is quiet time?
QUIET TIME: a private, one-on-one time with God that you do first thing in the morning. During that time, you pray, read your Bible, meditate on what you read, and listen to the voice of God.
No matter how busy Jesus was, He always took time to have a quiet time with God.
(Matthew 14:14-25; 26:36-44)

3 Reasons Why We Need to Have a Quiet Time With God:

1. It’s the only way to develop an intimate relationship with Him.

You can’t know God if you don’t spend time with Him.  
1 John 2:4: Whoever says, “I know him,” but doesn’t keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him. That word ‘know’ means to know intimately.

2. To increase your knowledge of Him and His Word. 

The more you know, the more you grow as a Christian. If you’re not learning, you’re not growing.
(1 Corinthians 3:1-2, Hebrews 5:12-14; 6:1)

3. The process itself requires you to evaluate yourself on a daily basis.

When we read and meditate on God’s word it reveals the areas we need to improve in and work on. It causes us to personally evaluate whether or not we’re living the way God’s word tells us to and if not, it convicts us to repent and change.
2 Peter 1:12-13, 1 Corinthians 11:1
