Christianity is a love relationship between a child of God and his Maker through the Son, Jesus Christ, and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
You cannot love someone you do not know. And you cannot know someone with whom you don’t spend quality time. To know God is to love Him. To love Him is to trust Him. To trust Him is to obey Him. And to obey Him is to be blessed. It all begins with a quality quiet time—a daily communion time with the Lord.
Psalm 5:3 says, “My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up.” Why should you have a quiet time in the morning? Because you are getting ready to start the day. You wouldn’t take a trip and then read the map, would you?
The prayer offered to God in the morning during your quiet time is the key that unlocks the door of the day. Any athlete knows that it is the start that ensures a good finish.
