The Morning Update

  • Early in the morning, while it was still dark, he rose up and went out, and departed into a deserted place, and prayed there. Simon and those who were with him searched for him. They found him and told him, "Everyone is looking for you." Mark 1:35-37 WEB.

    Jesus often withdrew from the noisy crowds to be alone with His Heavenly Father in prayer. Here, He chose His Apostles, refreshed His strength, prepared for the coming day, and got His next mission. Prayer and listening were His morning update.

    Jesus' life was not without its struggles while He was on Earth. He was tested in every way, just as we are, but He passed every test (Hebrews 4:15). Jesus earned the saying, "Worthy is the Lamb." It wasn't merely given to Him. Part of it involved praying hard and regularly.

    We often get caught up in the day's hustle and bustle and slowly fall apart under stress. Yet, if we can get alone and spend some time in prayer, those things will fix themselves and begin to fall into place. God will help us take care of it, but we still need to ask Him. James said we have not because we ask not (James 4:2).

    When you don't know the answer, the Lord does. When you don't have the resources, He does. When you feel lost and don't know what to do next, He does. When no one else on earth cares about you, He does.

    So no matter how busy you get today, set aside some time for prayer so you can refresh your spirit and get your morning update. You build yourself up by praying (Jude 20). Jesus teaches us to pray always and not give up (Luke 18:1). Spending time with God will provide the answer to the questions you will face today.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for all You do for me. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Please walk with me and talk with me today. Help me learn to recognize Your voice and to know when You are leading me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!
