Today's Verse/Thought: Finding A Quiet Place
One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. Luke 6:12
In the above verse, Jesus knew that it was not possible to have an intimate fellowship and communion with His Father without finding a quiet place. The same is true with us. We must have a place where we can be alone with God. A place where there are no worldly distractions. If you do not find a quiet place it will be almost impossible to concentrate on His Word, or pray and hear God speak to you.
Identify a place either in your home or somewhere where there is little chance that someone will interrupt you. Make sure that family members or others who may be around know and respect your privacy. If there are cell phones or other distractions, turn them off. Make it as comfortable as possible.
Next, place your devotional materials where you can easily and comfortably access them. I like to surround myself with dictionaries and various commentaries so that I can easily look things up. I also keep my laptop and Bible software handy and have downloaded many resources to my phone and tablet.
