Some Bible-believing Christians call it My Quiet Time; others refer to it as “having my devotions.” Regardless of what name you attach to it, one of the most common disciplines for believers who are hungry for spiritual growth is a daily (ideally), personal time with God. To encourage personal worship, as a spiritual discipline, I have taught through the following Bible study outline many times over the past 25 years. Perhaps you will find it encouraging and helpful, too.
Definition of a quiet time: A quiet time is an unhurried time of intimate fellowship with the Lord during which the Spirit speaks to us through the Word, the Bible, and we speak to our heavenly Father through prayer.
- This demands that we be a listener (Psalm 27:8).
- This demands that we be a learner (Luke 11:1).
- This demands that we be a pray-er (1 Thess 5:16-18).
