What is quiet time?
Simply setting time aside in your day to spend in the presence of God, to get to know more about Him. One of the fundamental ways of understanding who God is and His ways is through His word. The Bible is full of truth, concerning our maker and His purpose and plan for our lives, but where do you start? If you haven't picked up a Bible before it may seem quite daunting but do not fret! Take the Bible one step at a time and read what God has to say about you and Himself.
The Bible translation you use is entirely down to personal preference but here are some reccommendations of translations that prove easy to read and understand:
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Amplified Version (AMP)
Some may wonder: "what is the purpose for reading the Bible?". Take this perspective: fighting a battle without a weapon is deadly. In the same way, being a Christian without knowing the Word is dangerous.
In Ephesians 6:12 it says we are not fighting against flesh alone, but against principalities and powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual hosts in heavenly places. Be prepared to defend your faith with the word of God. The word of God is sharper than any two edged sword!
