Early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up and slipped out to a solitary place to pray (Mark 1:35).
The words of an old song go something like this, “If you’re too busy for God, Brother, you’re too busy.” What a trick of the deceiver overloading us with demands—work to do, texts and emails to respond to, school commitments, church commitments, sports, friends, exercise, and, oh yes, family. Feed your body, feed your mind, feed your soul. And guilt! if we dare let one of those slip.
In her book, Lies Women Believe, Nancy Leigh DeMoss says that God gives us enough time to do what He has planned for us to do. He’s not going to leave out the important people or things, and He knows that we also need to relax and refresh.
Plugging in my phone is an important and necessary use of time—so, also, is plugging into the Ultimate Source of Power to recharge.
