Mark 1:35

Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.

Personal Challenge...

Once again, Jesus does not tell us what we are to do, but He demonstrates it by doing it Himself. Here we have Jesus, a part of the Godhead, committing a significant part of His day to prayer and solitude  He is God and yet He shows us that it is imperative to spend time alone with God the Father...lots of time. Jesus was also fully human, which means He had temptations and spiritual attacks coming at Him all of the time. Is it possible that one of the key contributors to His being able to submit His human will entirely to God and not sin was because of the time that He spent in prayer and solitude? If so, then wouldn't this also be of benefit to me? Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
