A Special Place The location where you have your quiet time is also important. The Bible indicates that Abraham had a regular place where he met with God. Today's verse tells us that Jesus had a custom of praying in the garden of Gethsemane on the Mount of Olives. 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. In today's noisy world, 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; where you are 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. Your place ought to be a sacred place. This is where you meet with the living God. Where you meet the Lord can be just as holy as the place where Abraham met God. You don't have to be in a church building. I know people have had their quiet times in their cars parked in a quiet place, in an empty closet at home, in their backyards, and even in your truck or favorite recliner . Each of these places has become sacred.
“Then, accompanied by the disciples, Jesus left the upstairs room and went as usual to the Mount of Olives.”
Luke 22:39 NLT
