Have you ever wondered how important are personal times of solitude? Matthew 14:23 tells us that “after sending them home, He (Jesus) went up into the hills by Himself to pray. Night fell while He was there alone.” Jesus took time out for quiet. Seeking solitude was an important priority for Jesus. He made room in His busy schedule to be alone with the Father. Folks, spending time with God in prayer nurtures a vital relationship and equips us to meet life’s challenges and struggles. We need to develop the discipline of spending time alone with God….. it will help you grow spiritually and become more and more like Christ!
