What Is A Powerful Quiet Time?
But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. 2 Peter 3:8 NASB
One day is like a thousand years! This means that one eternasecond [italics mine] is infinitely greater than all the days that human beings have ever lived or will ever live put together. This led me to a “How Great Thou Art…” chorus, and via concordance to Psalm 90:4.
For a thousand years in Your sight are like yesterday when it passes by, or as a watch in the night. Psalm 90:4 NASB
This led me to a word study of both day and year, and eventually to some commentaries about the historicist view of the book of Revelation, and to several other places in a most circuitous version of The P.R.A.Y.E.R.™ Quiet Time Plan™ that I shall not relate here. Well, I can tell you this was one of the best quiet times I had experienced in a month of Sunday schools.
But why? What made this quiet time – great – or significant to me? What makes any quiet time with the Lord – powerful? Catherine has eloquently introduced Six Secrets that empower a quiet time. But what about you? What was your best quiet time, and why? What makes your quiet times purr, tick, and hum? What makes any quiet time great? What transcends a quiet time to powerful?
Comments much appreciated.
