Quiet time with God is such a important part of a Christian lifestyle. Being a Christian is about having a deep, intimate relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.
When we have a relationship with someone, what do we do? Usually we spend time with them, talk to them, get to know them, and trust them. This is how we should look at the function of our quiet time with God!
What does your time with Jesus look like? Everyone’s may look a little different, but the basic principles are prayer and Bible study. Below I wrote my quiet time routine to show you how I go about my quiet time with God!💖
If you’ve been going through a rough patch, I hope you’ll get some inspiration to get back to God. Or maybe you’re looking to make your quiet time longer and more in tune.
Either way, I hope I can provide some ideas you’ll like that will help grow your faith and strengthen your relationship with our Lord!🙌💓
I always begin my quiet time by entering into God’s presence. This is done through praise& prayer! I always begin by praying out to God for his goodness& thanking God for everything I have and all he has done for me❤
Do you look at God as your rescuer? Your friend? Your comforter? Your faithful provider? We’ve all had unique& personal experiences with the Lord& therefore associate Him with different things. Praise Him for what comes to your mind first. Then fill in with other things from the Bible.
Do you know all of the amazing things that the Bible says about our God?
He is called many names throughout the Scriptures that reveal to us His nature. It always elevates my time with Jesus when I purposely use His Biblical names. It can truly help you to feel the Holy Spirit within and around you.
Below, I’ve put together a list of some of God’s names that are found in the Bible (in Hebrew and their English meanings). Feel free to save it and use it when you pray and praise the Lord!🙌
Another great way that I love praising God is by reading from the book of Psalm. Psalm is full of songs and prayers praising the Lord and declaring who He is.(The book of psalms has some of my favorite scriptures ever!)💗
My two favorites are chapters 107 and 118. Try reading these passages during your next quiet time& I promise you will feel the presence of Lord around you and feel his peaceful, loving holy spirit!❤🙏
The last thing I do is praise God! I can be sitting in my room with Christian music playing, singing to the Lord& putting my hands in the air thanking God, and talking to God about my good or bad day and it feels just like I’m in church feeling the Lord’s holy spirit!💗
You don’t have to go to church to feel God and his love! You can praise him wherever you are & still be doing it in God’s glory!🙌💗(praying in a church doesn’t make your prayer more special or important then doing it at home or wherever your at!) Be bold!❤
I encourage you to find Biblical references that lift you up in your personal weaknesses and help dismiss the lies that the enemy tells you about yourself!
Maybe it’s depression, body image, feeling untalented, etc. Cover yourself in God’s truth each and everyday!💗💗
Quiet time with God is so helpful to me, because I know it brings me closer to God and helps with my anxieties& struggles knowing, I can talk to God with no judgements and know that I’m loved by him forever!❤❤
I hope that this helped some of you with your quiet time with our Lord! Its truly a blissful feeling having that quiet time to show him the praise and love he deserves!!🙌💕
Always looking to Jesus🙌💕
