How to Have a Meaningful Quiet Time

The following is one of my favorite old Adrian Rogers articles about the daily quiet time . . . 

Oh how love I Thy law! it is my meditation all the day.” Psalm 119:97

"Christianity is not a legal relationship, it is a love relationship. Ten thousand 'don'ts' will never make you one iota more like the Lord Jesus Christ. It is Jesus Himself Who makes you like Him. But you need to spend time with Him. I want to give you five factors for spending some quiet time with Him each day.

The Proper Period

You must find the right time. Your quiet time should last at least half an hour. But some time is better than no time, so if you can't start at thirty minutes, begin with ten. It should be your very best time. Don't give the Lord your leftovers. And don't try to find time - make time, and make it a priority. Also find time early in the day. Psalm 5:3 says, '… in the morning will I direct my prayer unto Thee, and will look up.' You don't take the trip and then read the map, do you? Spend time alone with God to begin your day."
