Vital signs- Sunday, October 31st , 2021


Quiet Time:

The main rule is this: Keep your plan simple. Wait on God (Relax) -- Be still for a minute; don't come running into God's presence and start talking immediately. Follow God's admonition: "Be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10) Be quiet for a short while to put yourself into a reverent mood. Pray briefly (Request) -- Ask God to cleanse your heart and guide you into the time together. You need to be in tune with the Author before you can understand his Book! Read Scripture (Read) -- This is where your conversation with God begins. He speaks to you through his Word, and you speak with him in prayer. When you read your Bible, try to do it - Slowly -- Don't be in a hurry and don't try to read too large an amount. Repeatedly -- Read a passage over and over until you start to picture it in your mind. Remember that your goal here is not to gain information, but to feed on the Word and get to know Christ better. Aloud but quietly -- Reading it aloud will improve your concentration. It will also help you understand what you are reading better because you will be both seeing and hearing what you are reading. Systematically -- Read through a book at a time in an orderly method. You'll understand the Bible better if you read it as it was written - a book or letter at a time. A chronological study Bible is fun.


“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.”
