When our cars run low on fuel, we simply drop by the local filling station to get more fuel. When our bodies are hungry, we feed them. How do we refuel our spiritual lives?
In the New Testament we see that Jesus had a very demanding schedule. He traveled from town to town, often walking many miles between the towns. He spent a lot of time with people. If you ask any public speaker and teacher how demanding this can be, they will tell you it is very draining to minister for extended periods. Your body and your spirit becomes fatigued, but the bible says “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed” (Mark 1:35-36).
The day before the above scripture was recorded, Jesus had a full day of ministry healing the sick, delivering people from demons and walking to different cities (Mark 1:29-37).
When Jesus was on earth, He was fully man. Everything He did was based upon receiving specific directions and power from His father to do them. He was not operating as God, but as a human being with the same limitations you and I have. So, Jesus knew one of the key ways to get enough energy for the next battle is to refuel His mind, body and spirit by spending time in prayer to his Heavenly Father.
Saint of God, spending time with God and meditating on his word is a critical discipline for every follower of Jesus, if you expect to have power and victory in your Christian walk. If this is not a part of your daily experience, why not start tomorrow with a few minutes of focused time of reading the word and prayer. Three chapters of the word every day is enough but use the scriptures you have read to help you pray. Each one of us needs to find a solitary place to focus upon the Lord and his Word .Please Set a certain time, and if possible, set an alarm to wake you up so that you may seek the Lord and re-energize yourself for the battles ahead. Jesus did it and so should we as his followers.
You will be encouraged with the new spiritual focus and sooner than later, your life and ministry in God will be full of breakthroughs to the glory of God. Have a blessed day.
