* Commit the day and what you have learned to the Lord.  Look for application

throughout the day.

 

6)  HAVE VARIETY

You do not have to do you Quiet Time in exactly the same way every day.

Have a plan, but vary that plan.  For example, if you are reading through the

Bible 4-5 chapters per day, you may (in fact, you probably will) get bogged

down in Leviticus with the many laws and regulations.  Don’t quit, just skip to

Matthew in the New Testament for a week, and then come back and start where

you left off.  You may read straight through books for an overall view at times,

and at other times read various different books for thirty days in a row.

Remember, variety is the spice of life.

 

7)  MEET WITH GOD

You will if your time is not just a legalistic ritual, but rather a personal,

intimate fellowship with Almighty God.  Imagine, God desires our fellowship--

He longs for it!  And He honors our willingness to spend time with Him.

 

8)  DON’T TAKE COPIOUS NOTES

Save that for more in-depth study times.  Try to record one or two special

insights or promises that God gives you each day.  You will soon have a bundle

of precious jewels from God that you can refer back to and review in times of

need and spiritual dryness.  (Yes, dry times do come.)

 

9)  BE PRACTICAL AND CONSISTENT

Some days you won’t feel like having a Quiet Time.  Do your best to at least

have a short one, even if it is only ten minutes reviewing underlined passages

that God impressed on you in weeks and months before.  Be practical in this--

keep it related personally to you.  Read to meet Christ personally each day.

“What is God saying to me?”

 

10) SCHEDULE YOUR TIME

If your Quiet Time is early morning, then go to bed at night!  And get up when

the alarm goes off!  Satan will do everything possible to squeeze too many

activities into our day, so as to squeeze out our Quiet Time.  Plan accordingly.

 

11) MEDITATE ON WHAT YOU READ

A good way to keep in mind what you read is to check up on yourself

throughout the day.  Ask yourself, “What did I read in my Quiet Time today?”

See if you can recall the highlights.  If not, review those chapters when you get

home at night.  As you recall them, ask God to help you apply them throughout

the day and in your life and ministry.

 

12) ENJOY YOUR QUIET TIME
