Looking for solitude was a significant need for Jesus (Matthew 14:13). He made room in his bustling timetable to be separated from everyone else and be with the Father. Investing energy with God in petition and prayer supports an imperative relationship and prepares us to address life's difficulties and battles. We need to foster the control of investing energy alone with God. It will assist us with developing spiritually and becoming increasingly more like Christ.
Spending time alone with God is necessary.
How many of us while dating our spouses, or future spouses, had that longing in our hearts to be with our loved ones?
How is our communication time with God? In Exodus 19, Moses went up to Mt Sinai to talk to God. In Mark 1:35, Jesus went out in early morning.
In Luke 9:28, Jesus took three men to have a prayer meeting. In Matthew 26:36-46, Mark 14:32-42, and Luke 22:39-46, the Scriptures tell us about Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Jesus spent time alone with God the Father in prayer, and many others in the Bible spent time alone with God. We need to take time to get away, get apart, get alone, and put aside all distractions so we can hear every word God has for us. Granted He may not have the Word we are expecting, but it is our duty to listen.
There is an old song that says, “Take time for Jesus, He always takes time for you… When the Lord is looking through the Book of Life and your name He cannot find, what if He said I meant to write it there, but I really didn’t have the time.”
