If King David wasn’t enough of an example for us to follow, consider how the Lord Jesus found closeness to his Father in prayer. In Mark we’re told that Jesus, “rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark…departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.” Luke also tells us that “he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.” Ask yourself why Jesus, in perfect spiritual harmony with his Father, still found value in getting away from it all, into the wilderness to pray. If this was important to our Lord, I think we can benefit too.
So make it a point in this new year to find more quiet time alone in the wilderness with God. Get on your bike, or in your boat, or on the trail and get lost until you can’t hear anything but the wind or the waves and hopefully the Spirit of God speaking to you, and know that He is God.
