Praying in the Wilderness

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Luke 5:1-16 today.
You know John 3:16 and its magnificent declaration that Jesus is for the world. Do you know Luke 5:16? It is quite different than John 3:16. Listen to Luke’s words, “So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed” (Luke 5:16). He came for the world, yet; frequently He withdrew into the wilderness away from the people. Why did He do that? He needed to pray. He came for the world, but He still needed time with His Father.
You are here for many people. Do what you can to serve them, but remember that you need your Father also. Find time daily to pray to Him.
