Sunday, January 13th: Intimacy with Jesus

Luke 5:16
“ So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.”

 Jesus often took time away to be in the presence of God.  Throughout scripture we find this was a common practice of His.  He spent time with and rested in the Father.  Today Jesus calls us to quiet time with Him; a time to meditate on His living word and have a greater awareness of His presence, bringing us peace and refreshing; a better understanding of His plans for us and things to come. 

May our ever growing intimacy with Jesus continue to fan into flame a greater love, desire and excitement within us for what is on the heart of God.  May it be a constant in our everyday lives.

 Psalm 42:1-2
“As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God.”
