How often after Jesus had been alone did he go and do great things? As I have already written, after the death of John the Baptist is one example. Now after he has healed the Mother In Law, he’s off on mission to all over Galilee
Andrew Wommack and Joyce Meyer both talk about the necessity of a quiet time, be it two minutes in the loo avoiding the kids or a couple of hours with the door shut. It’s taken me a long time to get to this and I will not have it turned into a law if it’s missed, I’m not going to beat myself up about it, and I will not have a clock in there either. I can talk to God anytime, anyplace.After all, God doesn’t respond to how long I spend with him, but the quality and the openness I receive him. And maybe, one day I will burst out of that room, full of power, enabled and ready for my mission!
Jesus Prays in a Solitary Place
35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.36 Simon and his companions went to look for him, 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!”
38 Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.” 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.
