Priority is defined as a thing that is regarded as more important than another. Making God and His word a priority should be something we are doing daily to for a healthy and consistent spiritual life. Finding time for God is an important way to respond to His desire to walk with us and be included in every aspect of our life.
For instance a couple in a new relationship doesn’t have to be convinced or coerced into spending quality time together. Even when they are apart they seek ways to reconnect or show one another love, adoration, and appreciation.
We should be prioritizing our relationship with God in the same way we give priority to other relationships in our life. Quiet time with God is to experience His love, comfort, guidance. and overall presence.
Spending quality quiet time with God helps us to grow and change the kind of people we are. The change starts from within and we have to make a conscious effort to be sure we are watering all of the important relationships in our lives.
Establish a time of day that works best for you and keep your “appointment” with God. The time of day you choose doesn’t matter much– the importance is in spending time with God daily.
- David spent his time with God early in the morning (Psalm 63:1)
- Ezra spent his time with God midday (Nehemiah 8:3)
- David spent his time with God at night (Psalm 119:148)
Thank You Lord for this message and Your patience with us as we seek to know You more. Lord help us to make our time with You a priority and to be consistent in doing so. Lord I pray You use my quiet time with You to strengthen our relationship– to feel Your presence– and to follow Your guidance. In Jesus mighty name I pray.
