Jesus spent much time alone so that He could pray to God the Father and have His own Quiet Place. It is a model for personal time with God, that provides insight into how He lived His earthly ministry under God the Father's Sovereignty.
“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
He found a Quiet Place to be Alone
“One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.” Luke 6:12
“Yet the news about Him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear Him and to be healed of their sicknesses, but Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” Luke 5:15-16
His Priority for The Quiet Place
It is insightful that no matter how busy and exhausted Jesus became, He always found time to go to The Quiet Place to meet with His Father.
The time or place was not significant. He found the time and He made a place.What an encouraging example this is to make time for The Quiet Place no matter what is happening in our lives.
Yielding to Gods Will in The Quiet Place
