Luke 5:16 says,Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. How long has it been since you let God have all of you? I mean really have you? How long since you gave Him a portion of undiluted,uninterrupted time listening for His voice? Apparently,Jesus did.He made a deliberate offort to spend time with God.Spend much time reading about the listening life of Jesus and a distinct pattern emerges.He spent regular time with God,praying and listening.Mark says, "very early in the morning.while it was still dark,Jesus got up and left the house and went off to a solitary place,where He prayed" ( Mark 1 :35). Let me ask the obvious.If Jesus,the son of God,the sinless Savior of humankind,thought it worthwhile to clear His calender to pray,wouldn't we be wise to do the same?
