Luke 4:42 “At daybreak Jesus went out to a solitary place.”
Lord Jesus, after a Sabbath Day’s ministry of teaching and healing, You had to be refreshed in spirit and body. We admire how You often sought to be alone with the Father in prayer. As a human being, like us, You would give out so much and then You had to take in a renewed strength. As God, You could give people a healing touch in their bodies, minds, and spirits.
Our strength has to be renewed day by day. We live such busy lives and there are many demands on our time. We need to go apart from time to time unless we come apart. We praise You for the refreshing blessings that come when we bow in Your presence. We are renewed in strength and courage. Our minds are cleared and focused. You make us adequate to face our responsibilities.
May this pause for a time of meditation give this person what is needed for today. Surround this one with Your divine favor and grace. We are blessed to call ourselves by Your name – Christians!
