QUIET TIME

One-Year Interactive Daily Devotional

FOR


Interacting with God changes your life.

The Bible Changes You The Word of God, the Bible, is the most powerful weapon that every Christian has. It changes us as we read it, think about it, and do what it says. The Holy Spirit who lives inside every believer also uses the Bible to speak to us. He takes the words written in the Bible and tells us what God wants us to know for our lives. When something is interactive, it works in a way to have an effect on another. Quiet Time Interactive does just that: it is a tool that helps you to interact with the powerful weapon of the Word of God and with God Himself, which will have an incredible effect on your life.


Getting Started Quiet Time Interactive is all about spending time with God. In order to be friends with someone, you have to do two things: talk to them and listen as they talk to you. Quiet Time Interactive teaches you how to develop a relationship with God: learning how to listen to Him (by reading the Bible) and learning how to talk to Him (by praying to Him).

That’s what Quiet Time is all about: spending time with God.


Prioritize Think through your day and decide what time you will do your Quiet Time. Make it a consistent time, when things are quiet and you can really think. Put it on your schedule. Put a reminder on your phone. Ask a friend, leader, or parent to check in on you daily to see how your time with God was.

Pray Before you open God’s Word, ask God what He wants to speak to you about from it, and ask Him to help you obey it after you read it. REMEMBER TO PRAY FOR YOUR UNREACHED FRIENDS “You have 100 times more influence on your friends than a stranger does!” – Dare 2 Share The CAUSE CIRCLE is a simple tool that will help you be more intentional about sharing Jesus’ message with your friends. It’s built around three simple priorities that Jesus lived out during His earthly ministry. These same priorities will help you effectively share your faith: Prayer. Care. Share. PRAYER – Asking God to prepare my friend’s heart to hear the good news of Jesus. CARE – Asking God to help me love my friend by listening to them and caring for them. SHARE – Asking God to help me lovingly share the gospel message clearly and confidently with my friend.

Peruse: to examine with attention Look at your Quiet Time and look at the Bible verses chosen for that day at the top of the page. If you aren’t sure where the book is in the Bible, you can look at the index in the front of your Bible. From your computer or smartphone, you can use a Bible search engine or Bible app and type in the passage of the day. Read the verses, answer the questions, check the boxes, and fill in the blanks that are on the page of your Quiet Time. Quiet Time Interactive is made to help you go through each verse and think about it more deeply.


Practice Now that you prayed and heard from God as you have read through the Bible passage, the last step is to apply it to your life. Applying God’s Word is where you take what you read and do something about it. Post a verse from the reading or the quote at the bottom of the page from the Share It! section on your favorite social media platform. Tell some friends, small group leader, parents, or pastor about what you learned. Write down what you learned somewhere and read it a couple of times a day. Create a reminder on your phone that will pop up and remind you what you learned at a specific time during the day. Text a friend what you learned and ask them what they learned.

As you keep reading, praying, and applying, you will be amazed at how interacting with God changes your life.

MONDAY

TRUTH: PHILIPPIANS 1:8-14 PHILIPPIANS 1:8-9 Paul’s love and longing for the believers in Philippi was so great and so deep. God knew it was so. Do I have a deep love for my brothers and sisters in Christ? n YES n NO n SOME OF THEM Paul’s first prayer was for their _____________ to grow, abound, and reach out to a greater extent to God and others. Is my love for others growing, abounding, and reaching? n YES n NO I will take time to pray about that right now. n

PHILIPPIANS 1:10 Paul’s second prayer was that they would learn to identify and choose the best and most valuable things in life.

PHILIPPIANS 1:12-14 Paul’s imprisonment, though causing him and his friends much grief, was actually being used of God to expand the Gospel even to Caesar’s palace guards.

TUESDAY

WEEK 1

TRUTH: PHILIPPIANS 1:15-21 PHILIPPIANS 1:15-17 Sadly, some in Rome were preaching Christ and His Gospel for some wrong reasons and with selfish motives to hurt Paul and his ministry. What selfish motives could some preachers and teachers have today?_______________ ___________________________________________________________________

PHILIPPIANS 1:18 In spite of the impure motives of some, Paul was able to rejoice that ________________ was preached and proclaimed to the lost.

WEEK 1

WEDNESDAY

TRUTH: PHILIPPIANS 1:22-30 Paul faced a difficult problem as a prisoner. 1. Would he be allowed to live and continue to have a fruitful service to God? 2. Would he be put to death by the Romans for preaching Christ? Paul was willing to go on living for Christ, and he was willing to die for Christ, for life in Heaven is far better. Sadly, some people choose to end their life in suicide. This decision is against God and His truth. Suicide is a selfish decision that makes others hurt and suffer for my death. I know of someone who took their life. n YES n NO Many people have thought of suicide at one time or another in life. Our enemy, the devil, hates us and wants us to die rather than live for Christ. Our heavenly Father has given us life to live for Him, and He is the only One Who can or should bring our life to a conclusion. If I ever have suicidal thoughts, I will contact a trusted adult to help me through this.

n Yes, I promise to do this.

PHILIPPIANS 1:24-26 Paul knows that even though he longs for Heaven, he is better off staying on earth to help other Christians to grow in their faith, fellowship, and service. Your life is important to people around you now and to people you will meet in the future. n AGREE. n I DISAGREE.

PHILIPPIANS 1:27-30 Christians are to join together, stand fast, and live their lives for Christ and the Gospel. (v. 27) Do I? n YES n NO n SOMETIMES Christians are not to be afraid of their enemies, whether human or demonic. (v. 28) Am I afraid? n YES n NO n SOMETIMES Christians are to firmly believe in Christ and even to suffer for Jesus and the Gospel. (v. 29) Will I? n YES n NO n I WANT TO.

SHARE IT

Your life is important to people around you now and to people you will meet in the future.


THURSDAY

WEEK 1

TRUTH: PHILIPPIANS 2:1-8 Jesus’s humility on earth is my example of how to be humble.

PHILIPPIANS 2:2 List what Paul said the Philippian believers could do that would bring him joy. ________ _____________________________________ I try to live in harmony and love with other Christians. n YES n NO n I SHOULD.

n I tried to do this the other day when _____________________________________ __________________________________________________________________ .

PHILIPPIANS 2:3 A humble mind is to think, consider, and respect other people above ourselves. Who have I been looking down on? ___________________________________________________________________

PHILIPPIANS 2:4 Humility is to think of others and their lives and their issues more than we think of our lives and our issues. What do I spend too much time thinking about in regard to myself?_________________ ___________________________________________________________________

n Jesus is the same name as Joshua. n Jesus was named by an angel, Joseph, and Mary. n Jesus means the Savior who will deliver people from sin. Why is the name Jesus so often cursed and blasphemed? _______________________ __________________________________________________________________

PHILIPPIANS 2:9-10 Everyone is going to bow on their knees and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord now in this life or later at the Judgment. When did I bow and confess Jesus as my Lord and Savior? ______________________ __________________________________________________________________

PHILIPPIANS 2:12-13 This verse means that: ____ (Hint: Philippians 1:6) A. I must work to get salvation. B. I must work to keep my salvation. C. I must work out / live out my salvation.

PHILIPPIANS 2:14 Mumbling, grumbling, murmuring, questioning, and complaining are not very good ways to show my salvation. Choose three better words. 1.___________________ 2.___________________ 3._______________________

PHILIPPIANS 2:15-16 As Christians we are to be God’s lights in a crooked and wicked generation of people all around us. Today I will shine for Jesus by ___________________________________ __________________________________________________________________.

PHILIPPIANS 2:22-23 Timothy was Paul’s son in the faith. Who is your son or daughter in the faith? (Who have you led to Christ?) ____________________________ Timothy was tested and proven faithful and therefore Paul could trust him in the Gospel ministry. Have you proven yourself a faithful Christian? Are you someone who could be sent forth to serve Jesus? n YES n NO n HOPE SO! Paul wrote two letters of encouragement and instruction to Timothy.
