Having a transformational quiet time is not an issue of being spiritual enough. Rather, it is an issue of spiritually preparing my mind and heart to follow God.
Quiet time reading the Bible each day is a great way to learn how to grow closer to God, if we learn how to read the Scriptures spiritually.
A few simple spiritual choices can nourish a healthy soul and energize every area of our lives.
If you don’t read the Bible or if you are overtaken by fear and emotion so much that the Word can’t penetrate your heart, you will feel exhausted and lack power.
Believing in the “Spirituality of Jesus” in this way leads to believing he is intimately guiding our lives. Spirituality becomes a way of life.
