Daily Devotional- The Need to Withdraw
“But despite Jesus’ instructions, the report of his power spread even faster, and vast crowds came to hear him preach and to be healed of their diseases. But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer.” – Luke 5:15-16
Being busy has become a badge of honor in western society. We always talk about how busy we are and feel guilty when we don’t do any work. We need to withdraw more and realize that not everything we do is necessary and needs to be done right away. We must learn to get away like Jesus did and come back to our work more refreshed and better able to carry out the work the Father wants us to do.
