This past Sunday, April 8, 2018, we started a new series at DVCC called, "Growing in Christ". In the sermon, I shared the story of how God cornered me shortly after my salvation and compelled me to have a daily "Quiet Time". I didn't like the idea of a "quiet time" - it sounded to me like "nap time" in kindergarten! (Listen to the message here to get the whole story!) I'm so glad God lovingly insisted that I listen to Him about developing this spiritual habit - even if I didn't like the term being used. (Aren't you glad He loves us too much to just let us get our own way?!?)
So, what is a "Quiet Time"? You can use whatever term you like, but it involves a daily personal meeting with God where you quiet your heart and mind, read a portion of His Word, and allow His Spirit to apply it to your life for that day. It is a time to pour out your heart to the Lord, acknowledging His love, accepting His forgiveness, and being reminded that He is with you always. I like to think of it as resetting the direction of my heart towards true "spiritual north" - Jesus! We need this DAILY! Jesus taught us to pray, "Give us this day, our daily bread."
