Finding Peace: The Power of Quiet Time

Quiet time is the most appropriate time to practice to ‘soothe’ the numerous uneasiness that exist:

Calming various negative thoughts.

When we pray in the morning, all forms of negative thoughts that arise, we can ‘wipe them out’ with the thoughts that come from God. Make the book of Philippians 4:8 as a barometer. Force our minds to only focus on thinking about all the right things.

Philippians 4:8 (NIV) Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is

right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Calming various negative emotion.

Numerous forms of inner pressure, worry, anxiety, uneasiness, all negative feelings and emotion can be overcome by us thoroughly with prayer in tongues and declarations of the Word until we can feel freedom in the spirit.

At the same time we are also building ourselves to always feel the awareness of God’s reality. Thus, our lives will again become ‘vessels’ and the bait of His Spirit who is ready to build the lives of others.

1 Corinthians 14:4 (NIV) Anyone who speaks in a tongue edifies themselves, but the one who prophesies edifies the church.

Calming the spiritual atmosphere that is within our reach or territory.

Of course our life is not about ourselves, there are other people who are connected to us who bring their own ‘atmospheres’. This is what we need to ‘align’.

Make sure we release the prayers that build peace, joy, and hope. Use our mouths to declare faith, hope and love. Until we can feel the living atmosphere around us to be clean and pure.

1 Samuel 7:12-14 (NIV) Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer,[a] saying, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.” So the Philistines were subdued and they stopped invading Israel’s territory. Throughout Samuel’s lifetime, the hand of the Lord was against the Philistines. The towns from Ekron to Gath that the Philistines had captured from Israel

were restored to Israel, and Israel delivered the neighboring territory from the hands of the Philistines. And there was peace between Israel and the Amorites.

Consistency in quiet time will make us enjoy God’s evident care and provision.

Believe it or not, in morning time there is a spiritual portal that will make us enter a life under God’s protection and faithful love.

The following are Bible records on the importance of ‘time in the morning’:

In the morning is the right time for us to prepare our hearts, minds and tendency of the heart to walk in God’s will.

Genesis 22:3 (NIV) Early the next morning Abraham got up and loaded his donkey. He took with him

two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about.

In the morning is the right time to access and go back in the living dimension of communion with Him.

Genesis 28 : 16-18 (NIV)  When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the Lord is in this

place, and I was not aware of it.” He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.” Early the next morning Jacob took the stone he had placed under his head and set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it.

In the morning is the right time for us to fully surrender to Him and see His very evident sovereignty fighting for us.

Exodus 14:24-25 (NIV) During the last watch of the night the Lord looked down from the pillar of fire

and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion. He jammed[a] the wheels of their chariots so that they had difficulty driving. And the Egyptians said, “Let’s get away from the Israelites! The Lord is fighting for them against Egypt.”

In the morning is the time to access all portions of the blessings that the Father has provided (don’t always associate it with money).

Exodus 16:21 (NIV) Each morning everyone gathered as much as they needed, and when the sun

grew hot, it melted away.

In the morning is the time to experience the encounter with the reality of God’s presence.

Exodus 34:2 (NIV) Be ready in the morning, and then come up on Mount Sinai. Present yourself to me there on top of the mountain.

In the morning is the time when the power of prayer works greatly.

Psalm 88:13 (NIV) But I cry to you for help, Lord; in the morning my prayer comes before you
