Leave the Maddening Crowd

GOD PAUSE: I find a verse in the Bible that's tucked away in the activity of Jesus' day. Luke 5:16 says “Jesus repeatedly left the crowds, though, stealing away into the wilderness to pray.” Herein lies the secret --- if you'd call it that --- of Jesus' life. It was the inspiration of his purpose in life. It was his source of power and strength. It was his oasis of refreshing and calmness. Jesus broke away often from the craziness and yes even what we might call responsibilities, to spend time talking to His Father. My friend, are you and I any different? I say not. Papa, time with you is never wasted or unfruitful. It is a necessity in life. May we respond to your pull on our hearts to do that ---- often. Amen.
