Where To Have Your Quiet Time

Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. Luke 22:39 (NIV)

(This devotional is adapted from Rick Warren's Bible Study Methods.)

The location where you have your quiet time is important. The Bible indicates that Abraham had a regular place where he met with God (Genesis 19:27).

Jesus had a custom of praying in the garden of Gethsemane on the Mount of Olives. "Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him" (Luke 22:39).

Your place ought to be a secluded place. This is a place where you can be alone, where it's quiet, and where you will not be disturbed or interrupted. This may take some ingenuity, but it is necessary. It ought to be a place -

  • where you can pray aloud without disturbing others;
  • where you have good lighting for reading (a desk, perhaps);
  • where you are comfortable. (WARNING: Do not have your quiet time in bed. That's too comfortable!)

 

Your place ought to be a special place. Wherever you decide to meet with the Lord, make it a special place for you and him. As the days go by, that place will come to mean a lot to you because of the wonderful times you have there with Jesus Christ.
