If you are anything like me you have a pretty full schedule. In this day and age it doesn’t matter if you are married, single, with or without kids if you are above ground your schedule is probably packed.

If I looked at your planner what would I find? Work, school schedule, intensive gaming, hobbies, church, community activities, social obligations and the like?  Would I find a daily block of time to spend with God in prayer?

I know you’re busy. We all are, but we aren’t saving the world. We aren’t healing the sick, giving sight to the blind, walking on water, dying for the sins of others or raising ourselves from the dead. That is a busy schedule.

Jesus was busy, but the word of God says:

But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. Luke 5:16 NIV

Let’s pay special attention to the words “Jesus”,  “often”,  “withdrew”, “lonely” and “prayed”.

Jesus-the Messiah, Savior, Resurrected King, Healer, Teacher, Gate, the Truth, the Way, the Light (too many to name here) 

often- frequently, many times, in many instances

lonely- unfrequented and remote

withdrew- left (pulled back)

prayedto have been in communication with God

Now lets put it all together again.

But the Messiah [ Savior, Resurrected King, Healer, Teacher, Gate, the Truth, the Way, the Light] in many instances left to unfrequented and remote place and communicated with God. 

If Jesus met with God frequently considering his busy schedule, can’t we?

I challenge you to set aside 15 minutes a day to be in communication with God from a remote location.

Let’s follow the example set by Christ!
