Finding God in the quiet places

It's so easy for our days to get so busy taking care of necessary things or even going about God's work that we don't feel His presence as closely as before or maybe we don't even hear His words as clearly. That is a dangerous place to be.

One thing I love to do is to “find God in the quiet places”. For much of my life, large amounts of quiet time came first thing in the morning. Many people try the mornings for their quiet time but because of their schedules or their body clocks the morning does not work out well for them. What matters is that you have time to tap into the presence of God. I still have devotional time in the morning, but as of late, I've been 'going to bed' at least an hour early and spending that time in worship and prayer. Bible study comes during the day. But at night- when all is quiet, you can feel God in the quiet places as you praise Him.

It can be easy to forget the closeness He calls us to have with Him. We know the church (and all the members thereof) are called the bride of Christ, but remember it is personal too.

Isaiah 54:5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

What a friend we have in Jesus!!
