Quiet times with God are so important on various levels. Think about it. You are spending time alone with God. Your time with the Lord can have a big impact on your life. Quiet times can be spent listening for the things He has to say, talking with Him, reading the Bible and so much more! We all know reading the Bible can be boring and hard to understand, but that’s a good reason to ask Him for the interpretation of what your reading. Just by spending time with Him you can get to know God’s heart.
