When we learn to have a consistent quiet time with God every morning, we realize it is ALWAYS better than anything else we choose to do. Whether it’s sleeping in, eating, exercising, family time, the news, social media, music, etc., nothing else adds as much to our life as God does! He is the ultimate source of all goodness, strength, wisdom and love. He is the source of all we seek–we often just don’t realize it. He recharges us and refocuses our vision. He renews us to live in our deepest and most satisfying purpose.

The Psalmist said: “I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning. O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption.” (‭Psalms‬ ‭130:5-7‬) The Psalmist describes how his soul waits for the Lord and how His hope is in His Word, which indicates that his time with God is something treasured and valuable. Clearly, His time with God was so dear to Him that it was his primary source of hope and unwavering love. Does this describe your quiet time with God?

To develop this passion for quiet time with God, we must recognize the IMMENSE VALUE of our relationship with Him so that we passionately pursue it. Then, it becomes an addiction. Why? Because there is no one better than God. There is no activity that satisfies us like time with Him. There is no possession as precious as Him. However, we will never discover this amazing truth unless we spend time with Him. I know this–I spent the first 20 years of my Christian life without a passionate quiet time. Now, I’d rather die than go back to living without our close relationship. God is seeking to know the heart that longs to know Him. He will be the greatest treasure you ever find!
