Your quiet time with God (4)

If you think being in fellowship with God is important, begin to make time for it.

'Don't Look Back'

Memory Verse: Job 23:12 'I have not departed from the commands of his lips;  I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread'

The Word for Today devotional by United Christian Broadcasters (UCB) says:

Your quiet time with God is more than just a good idea, it’s vital to your spiritual survival, it’s also essential to your spiritual growth and maturity. You say, ‘But I go to church every week.’

Can you imagine what would happen if you ate only once a week? The patriarch Job said,

‘I have treasured his words more than daily food.’ Peter described the Scriptures as nourishing milk (1 Peter 2:2), and the writer to the Hebrews called the Word of God solid food (Hebrews 5:14).

Your quiet time is also like a spiritual bath. Jesus said, ‘Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you’ (John 15:3 KJV).

You shower every day to stay clean and avoid body odours it’s not easy to be around someone who smells badly, and you run the risk of offending them by telling them so.

But if you love them you’ll do it. Jesus told Peter, ‘Thou art an offence [odious] unto me:

for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men’ (Matthew 16:23 KJV).

Here’s the bottom line. Unless you protect your quiet time with God:

1) you’ll be cut off from your source of strength, guidance, and wisdom.

2) your usefulness to God will be limited.

3) you’ll be inconsistent in your Christian life. You say, ‘But I don’t have time!’ You have the same 168 hours each week that everybody else has!

And how you spend them is determined by what you think is most important. So if you think being in fellowship with God is important, begin to make time for it.
