READ: Isaiah 55:1-11
How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth.
Psalm 119:103
Have you ever wondered why there is very little of God's power in the Church today? It is because of the sin that is in the Church (Ephesians 5:5, 6). Thank God that a daily quiet time provides cleansing (John 15:3).
A daily quiet time also produces faith in the average Christian.
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:17
Faith comes by hearing the Word of God. The more you read the Bible, the more you will believe in God's power to save. The Bible is replete with hundreds of stories of God's deliverance. You will read about people at the brink of death who were saved by God. You will read about people in difficult and complex situations who were saved by faith. Do not take it for granted. Do not think that you know everything about God. A daily dose of the Word of God will increase your faith.
Again, a daily quiet time drives away weariness, dejection and depression. The Word of God is like rain and snow that cools and refreshes. You will be blessed by the cooling and refreshing effect of a daily quiet time. As I go about my daily tasks, I often become weary and unhappy if I have not been able to have time with the Lord. I cannot explain it. You have to experience it for yourself. The refreshing and calming effect that a time in the presence of God produces, cannot be compared with anything.
