Luke 5:16 and the Badlands National Park, South Dakota.
“But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray.” Luke 5:16
Find God in the Wilderness
As one who likes to meet with God in the outdoors, I love this verse. Here Jesus sets an example for us. Several times in the Gospels He heads to the outdoors to be with the Father. This verse says He did so “often”.
When we can, we should do the same. It doesn’t have to be to the mountains or desert. It could be a park or the quiet of your own backyard.
I do realize many of you cannot get to the outdoors. I am happy God allows me to bring a little of the outdoors to you.
