The world keeps us so busy at times and it is so important not to forget to spend time with God. Time spent with him is never wasted and he never forgets all we do out of love that we show towards his way. “For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister”.(Hebrews 6:10).
In the most recent of news stories we are reading that children are not suppose to pray in school, or of workers who have said the words God Bless You and have been fired from their jobs for doing so. God wants us to show him that we love and fear him and by doing so we are reverencing him. It is written we do not have to show this by an outward appearance, but from our hearts praise and thank him. “Spaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord: Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ”.(Ephesians 5: 19,20).
Jesus oftentimes spent alone time with his Father and by doing so he was strengthened to then better tend to the multitudes which were in need! “But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities. And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed”.(Luke 5:15,16).
