"So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed." Luke 5:16 NKJV 

"Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed." Mark 1:35 NKJV

The above scriptures show us that Jesus carved out time to get to a quiet place. As Jesus' public ministry grew, so did the number of followers. He is followed by those who need miracles performed in their lives and for the hearing of His teachings. Of course, He gives Himself to the multitude of people. He heals, delivers, teaches, and blesses the people. If Jesus, with all of His power and miracle works, needed quiet time with His Father, then believers should follow His example and get to that quiet place.

How often do you withdraw from the busyness in your life to get to that quiet place with God? It is in that quiet place that you will hear His voice. It is in that quiet place that you will receive instruction, wisdom, knowledge and understanding. It is in that quiet place that you will find peace. Make it a point to get to that quiet place each day and enjoy the blessings that follow.

Be blessed.


  1. Misty, my Pastor preached along these lines on Sunday. He said we often rush through the time of quiet and worshipful communion with our God and jump right into petitioning Him for "things." And intercession, forget it, we are already running late. Thanks for the reminder that Jesus is not only our pray example in words, but also in practice. Great post.

  2. Thank you again.

    I run to that quiet place. I especially love those peaceful mornings before everything gets busy or hectic.
