Alone with God

In His public ministry, He never taught without using parables; but afterward when He (Jesus) was alone with His own disciples, He explained everything. (Mark 4:34)

With my apologies to various authors C.S. Lewis, Paul Harvey, maybe others, who have written about how the enemy endangers our relationship with God. When he can’t find something with which to tempt us, he keeps us busy, busy, busy with nonessential activities and needless random thoughts.

God desires our fellowship. He wants us to be part takers of the good things that are found in His word. Although His word never goes out void, just like any relationship, if we only communicated with occasional, random texts, we would not have anywhere near the relationship that we would have by spending time alone with that person.

Through His word and prayer, we can know God intimately. It is where His truth comes alive in our soul.

“When He was alone with His own, He explained everything. “

One thought on “Alone with God”

  1. “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM M E, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:23‬ ‭

    Jesus said the goal in life is not to DO things in His name (as His audience in this case… casting out demons, performing miracles, and prophesying) but to KNOW Him!
    With out knowing Him and being Known by Him our acts are considered lawlessness (worthless)
    “This is eternal life, that they may KNOW You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭17:3‬ ‭
    Thanks for this awsome reminder, Ro!!!
