Mark 1:35 NIV: Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
My beloved friend, here we see Jesus getting up very early in the morning while it was still dark to pray in a quiet place. This is one of the secrets of his success. He never left the presence of His father. He never stopped fellowship with his father.
If Jesus who is God considered it important to inconvenience himself and get up very early in the morning to pray, how much more you and I. It is obvious that we can’t do without prayer and fellowship with the lord. For in that way we communicate with God and God communicates with us; showing us what to do and taking care of things for us ahead even before the day begins.
When we commit our day to God in prayer very early in the morning, God will settle things for us even before the day begins. Whatever challenges heading your way for the day will be sorted out even before it happens.
Therefore, I encourage you to take it serious, inconvenience yourself and do as the master did while he was here on earth.
Declare to yourself loud: I will commit my day to God in prayer. Hallelujah.
Lord Jesus, may I always commit my day to you in prayer. I receive strength and grace to get up early in the morning to fellowship with you. In Jesus Name. Amen.
