A Regular Meeting

Description

Why don’t you do what Jesus did and spend regular time alone with the Father?

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, NIV).

One of the reasons I love to be in the Sea of Galilee region in Israel is because it’s one of those places where you can still see what it was like in Jesus’ day. It’s a place where you can very easily visualize Jesus wandering up in the hills—whether in the early morning, or even in the middle of the night—and finding a quiet place, just to spend time with His Father. So I ask you, if Jesus, the Son of God, needed to spend time with His Father, don’t you think you do as well?

Let me share a personal insight: On my own, I am too selfish, too lazy, and too busy to arrange regular time alone with God. I just don’t have the discipline to make that happen. And I’ll bet you have the same issues standing between you and a close relationship with your heavenly Father. If so, here is my secret to overcoming my self-made obstacles and creating a lifestyle of regular time alone with God—ask for His help. Simply ask God to give you the hunger to know Him and the determination to make it happen. He’ll be glad to give you that desire and to teach you how to create the discipline to have a regular meeting with Him! Why don’t you do what Jesus did and spend regular time alone with the Father?
