Time alone with God is very important for the Christian. Every day we as Christians are faced with difficulties. Things in which we cannot approach by ourselves. Things in which will defeat us unless we are walking in the strength of our Father in heaven. Have we prepared ourselves? Have we spent time alone with God? Our excuses are often “But we don’t have enough time,” “I am just so busy” and “I will make time tomorrow” in which we know will never happen. Just our short “help me God” prayers are not what I am talking about. I am talking about withdrawing from our busy schedule and spending time by yourself with God. Time on your knees pleading for your family, your life, your neighbors and the unsaved in this world.
In Luke 5:16 it says that our Lord Jesus would withdraw to desolate places and pray. Why? What was the reason Jesus the Son of God needed to withdraw and pray? And by the way, wasn’t He also God himself? Jesus realized the importance of communication with the Father. You see the reason we so often stumble through our days is because we fail to communicate with our Father. The Father is our strength! We will never be able to bear the fruit that our Father desires if we forget the source of our strength. He never gives us more then we can handle but He desires for us to seek Him for our strength. He doesn’t want you to stumble through your day! He wants you to bear fruit, so all that you do and all the victories that you have may bring Him glory. Friends it is out of relationship, not routine life, that we are able to do the works of Him who sent us. Wouldn’t you rather spend alone time with God daily then to stumble through your day?
