Encouraging Words 3/31/10 Reluctance Toward a Quiet Time

From:  Love Worth Finding

“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.” Psalm 66:18

Do you know what a quiet time is? It is fellowship with a holy God.

The reason that some folks do not have a quiet time is that they feel uncomfortable. The reason they feel uncomfortable is that they don’t want to look God in the face. The reason they don’t want to look God in the face is because they have sin in their lives. Or, they have been told that they are sinful.

What did Adam do after he had sinned and God came walking in the Garden? Adam fled. Before that, Adam had that quiet time with God, didn’t he? They had boundless, unending fellowship. But when there was sin in Adam’s life, he did not want to look God in the face.

Are you reluctant to have a quiet time? Ask God to shine His light into you. Then wait so you can fellowship with Him.
