A number of times in the Bible we see that Jesus withdrew to a quiet place. It was something that He did regularly.
Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn’t even have time to eat. (Mark 6:31 NLT)
In the above Jesus gives us some reasons…
1. To find rest
2. To get away from the crowds
3. To eat
Some times Jesus drew aside alone to spend time with His heavenly Father in prayer (Luke 6:12). This was just before He chose the 12 disciples.
I think it is an important reminder to have a quiet place where we can recharge both physically and spiritually. A place where we can find rest.
Have you got a place like that?
