Pub. Date: Mar. 01, 2004
One of the greatest joys and comforts in a Christian's life comes through personal time spent with God. What an awesome privilege it is to meet with Him every day, to come confidently into His presence.
In Hebrews 10:19-22 we read, "Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus,... let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water." Because of what Jesus did on the cross two thousands years ago, we need not approach God in fear and trembling, for our hearts are sprinkled clean and our bodies washed. The application is strong and unambiguous: "LET US DRAW NEAR!"
How to develop a Quiet Time is a forty-day journey of structured devotions, guided prayer, and personal application. Each week of the study centers on an important element to a personal relationship with God. Each day's adventure takes you to the Scriptures for guided self-discovery as it transitions you toward the daily habit of quietly meeting with God. This unique addition to the Following God Discipleship Series will serve as an excellent jumpstart to anyone who has ever struggled with the concept of a daily quiet time with God.
"This study consistently takes the student to the Word of God. A refreshing study that says true to scripture."
—Henry T. Blackaby, co-author of Experiencing God
