Great Bible study, Kim!
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.” Mark 1: 35
There is a saying I’ve seen in several stores. It says,
“Make time for quiet moments as God whispers and the world is loud.”
It also says in Psalm 46: 10a,
“Be still, and know that I am God.”
God is telling us that we need to separate ourselves from this noisy world so we can HEAR Him!! Let us find a time and place where we can regularly meet with Him. He waits patiently, every day, to hear from us.
He is waiting in the Living Room of our heart! (from Robert Boyd Mungers little book entitled, “My Heart- Christ’s Home”)
Meeting with Almighty God is NOT what the evil one wants us to do because it will change our lives! So let us turn to our Father for strength to fight the temptations of busyness.
Our Heavenly King, there are distractions all around us! It is hard to stay focused! Please FORGIVE us when we say, “It is difficult to find extra time to be with You!” You ARE our #1 PRIORITY! There is nothing more important in our day than You! No deadline! No meeting! No homework! Help us to see Father that setting time aside to be with You will bring everything else in our lives together! Everything important will get done! Help us to start new habits! Help us to start and end each day with You! We look forward to our time together and all You can teach us!!
We come before Your Throne in the Mighty Name of Your Son, Jesus. Amen.
