Your Appointment with God


“And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.” - Mark 1:35

"And he withdrew himself into the wildness, and prayed." Luke 5:16

Word from Mathis Chapel GLOW

Christ began His day by spending time with God, praying in the early morning hours (Mark 1:35). Later in His busy schedule He "would often slip away … to pray" (Luke 5:16). Since Jesus took time to spend with God each day, and He had perfect communication with God, how much more should we get alone with God in a daily quiet time.

A quiet time is a period set aside for two-way communication, communion, and meditation between you and God alone. The following are some practical pointers and suggestions for making your appointment with God nourishing and fun:

• Decide on a time. Early mornings are usually the best, but choose what works best for you.
• Plan it into your schedule.
• Choose a place.
• Get alone - you need to concentrate.
• Have a quiet attitude. Phil 4:6-7; Psalm 46:10; Lamentations 3:25-26
• Expect to meet with God and He with you. "In the morning, O Lord, Thou wilt hear my voice; in the morning I will order my prayer to Thee and eagerly watch" (Psalm 5:3).
• Keep your appointment with Him.
• Pray for the Holy Spirit to lead you in worship.


Father, thank you for the faith you have given me that I can trust in and depend upon you no matter what I face in life. Thank you for listening to my petitions and keeping me safe through ALL the storms in my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen!!
