WORD FOR TODAY. CJM

SPENDING TIME WITH GOD

“And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.” Mark 1:35

The word often means regularly. A lot. Jesus spent a lot of time alone with God. Why? Jesus needed to stay connected to the Father in order to be refreshed and recharged after the pressures of ministry.

So how do we spend time with God? Where do we start?

1 Remove Distractions. Silence your cell phone, close your laptop, turn off the TV – and ask God for a desire to know Him.

2 Be Vulnerable. Pray and pour out your heart to God. Christ teaches that prayer should consist of praising and thanking God for who He is and what He’s done. It includes asking Him to meet our needs and praying for God’s will in our lives and in the lives of others. It means asking God’s forgiveness for our sins and for the strength to face each day. It’s about 100% vulnerability with God.

3 Read God’s Word. God speaks, teaches and encourages us through His Word. If you want to know God, then read His Word. It’s His way of revealing Himself to each of us.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!
