In Solitude We Find Intimacy

And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.

~ Mark 1:35, ESV ~

Spending time in solitude is beneficial for an intimate and deep enriching relationship with our Heavenly Father. Christ sets the example for us to follow. He spent many times in solitude – praying to the Father. In this solitude, there is a deep spiritual intimate encounter with an Almighty Sovereign God.

There, in our private moments, we are able to reach out to the Heavens and reveal our vulnerability. Wise counsel helps us navigate our life. We pray for ourselves, pray for others, and seek healing. It is a time of quietness where our soul receives spiritual nourishment.

For our recovery, we ought to consider detaching ourselves from the world around us and spend time in quiet meditation. Reflecting upon our relationship with God helps us move toward a life with meaning and purpose.

One thought on “In Solitude We Find Intimacy

  1. Solitude for him, Jesus was for to get his instructions from Father each day.

    There was an incident where the disciples went out after him, to get him to go back to where they were the day before. The people all excited, excited them even more as this be what I see even my flesh and blood does also.

    Remembering Jesus’s reply, I am going over there, I have my instructions for the day.

    Seeing this being led, I see we each are to be as well. But we have leaders that get others to follow them. Not seeing it is finished for us to get new life given us each to be led in.

    Even as one of the disciples asked Jesus hey where is he going? And Jesus that is not for you to know, you have your instructions and so des he.

    Get it as they all got scattered about preaching and teaching and even scolded by this world for that

    The only command, that I see is not literally a command. How can having the freedom to choose be a command, or is a command a warning to us, to not harm any other, Everyone is our neighbor.

    For when Christ was asked what is the greatest of the Ten Commandments, Jesus replied LOVE
    Father his Father first and foremost, then the second follows as a result loving neighbor as self.

    When we do not see what was added to this how can we receive Father’s Love for us to give out as given.
    Christ said now Love your neighbor as I have loved you.

    What did he do? First he reconciled us all to himself in Father 2 Cor 5:16-20

    Then Father by one’s belief, no work of self, gives new life in risen Son to be led by him through us, as adopted into himself.

    Any time I get the credit, it is not of God, think on that big piece of meat.

    Faith is given, works to do that are not ours are given. Yes the two go hand in hand. Faith given is Son’s Faith, and real faith produces fruit.

    So think about a tree branch, does any tree branch produce fruit?
    No, the tree branch has to abide in the tree and the tree has to abide in the seed

    So believe and stand in it to grow up and not needing milk so much. There are many that still need milk, yet are sealed in to see truth over errors of this world we all are in full of troubles, man wanting his own way as if God himself

    First Birth, we when born do get treated as if we are God. Look at the nurseries where people are praising the Babies

    Ecclesiastes 7:1 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

    7 A good name is better than precious ointment;
    and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.

    As we see to grow up in humility, Father is the King that offered forgiveness to all mankind, that is revealed in Matthew 18:24-35

    Where this man that got it, was taken back to court to pay for his not appreciating this gift given him. Righteously so
    Just some steak and potatoes for thought between God and us individually and together is fellowship, discussing stuff and not arguing over what each sees or not
