Time Alone with God

- Jesus often slipped away from the multitudes, seeking solitude to spend time alone with His Father. He took time to pray.

- We must follow His example by finding time to spend with God alone (away from others...from the distractions of the world). It is not always easy but it is vital. We have to breathe in before we can breathe out. In order to serve God effectively, our prayer life must be active. If we neglect our quiet time with God and think we can just go on serving God with our own strength and effort, we will crash and burn. Exhausted and burned out.

- How is our relationship with our Heavenly Father? Do we talk with Him everyday...many times a day...all throughout the day? Or we only talk with Him when we need something from Him?

- "Spend plenty of time with God; let other things go, but don't neglect Him." Oswald Chambers

- No Time For God....but
Time for work and play
Time for dance and shows
Time for pinochle and bridge
Time for lodges and politics
Time for Sunday golf and baseball
Time for newspapers and funnies
Time for novels and magazines
Time for fashions and radio
Time for television and gardens
Time for parties and parades
Time for everything under the sun
Except for God.  (taken from an old tract)
I would also add, "Time for Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, emails, etc. but no time for God's Word" (real problem for some people). Sometimes it seems we just have no time for God. We seem to find time for everything else but have a difficulty finding time to pray, worshipread, study, memorize God's Word...to just spend time with Him, sitting at His feet. "If satan can't make us bad, he'll make us busy." (John West)
