“…the essence of a private devotion: to seek the face of God before we seek the face of anyone else.“
“Sometimes we are so focused on completing our Bible reading that we can miss encountering God. All we have achieved is to fulfil our own Bible reading vows for that day. Yet the purpose of a Quiet Time is to meet with God. If we miss that, then we have missed the whole point!“
“The aim of our Quiet Time is to focus on what God wants to say to us from the Bible and allow him to speak into our lives. It’s the most important appointment of our day.“
“…a Quiet Time is time deliberately set aside in our day for seeking God as we prayerfully engage with his Word.”
“Our devotional life affects us. We may not feel so at the time, but God is doing an invisible work within us. For through the Word of God, the Holy Spirit is chiselling away at our hearts and shaping them to become more like Christ.”
“Bible meditation is an unhurried saturation in the Word of God. It is a deep pondering on every word found in a verse, allowing each one to feed and influence our soul.”
“Our Quiet Times are full of ups and downs because we inevitably experience seasons of life which can be particularly demanding on us both physically and mentally.”
“Jesus didn’t allow his disciples any shortcuts to intimacy with him, so we can’t expect it either.
Our relationship with God will only flourish if we invest time, effort and commitment.”
