35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, He got up, went out, and made His way to a deserted place. And He was praying there. 36 Simon and his companions went searching for Him. 37 They found Him and said, “Everyone’s looking for You!”
38 And He said to them, “Let’s go on to the neighboring villages so that I may preach there too. This is why I have come.”
The Lord showed us a model, for the best time to speak to the Father. If you are starting an ordinary day or are getting ready for a ministry, the time spent with the Lord is before you head out the door. Start your day with the Lord, seeking His strength and wisdom to accomplish His will. Wake up while everyone is still sleeping so that your focus on the Lord can be uninterrupted. If you do this every single day before you walk out the door, your spirit will be full of energy and ready for any spiritual attack.
