“After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone” Matthew 14:23

Time with God in Nature

The Bible tells us that Jesus often spent time alone in the wilderness. In this particular circumstance it was the second time in two days Jesus tried to get alone after hearing about the death of his cousin, John the Baptist. The first time He tried to get away the crowds followed Him. Finally, after He fed over 5,000 people Jesus sent His disciples away in a boat and He retreated to a mountain alone with God the Father. Jesus knew there are times we just need to get away and pray. As Christians, we follow in Christ’s footsteps when we get outside and spend time alone with the Father in nature.  If we do so we will be refreshed and blessed.

Read the whole story in Matthew 14.
