But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer. (Luke 5:16 NLT)
This scripture says Jesus “often withdrew” to the wilderness to pray. It shows through all his busy-ness, He still made sure He had quiet time with God in prayer. As Christians we are to follow Christ, to be Christ like and learn from this example to “often withdraw” from your busy-ness and pray. Spend quiet time with The Lord daily. Get in a routine of spending time with The Lord on a one on one basis.
In life strong relationships are built on frequency and quality time. For example the more often and amount of time we spend with loved ones and friends, the closer we become to them. This works the same in our relationship with GOD. Spend time with GOD “often” and “withdraw” from the world to have quality time and build up your relationship with our Heavenly Father.
