Be Still

Mark 1:35-38

Rising very early before dawn, he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed. Simon and those who were with him pursued him and on finding him said, “Everyone is looking for you.” He told them, “Let us go on to the nearby villages that I may preach there also. For this purpose have I come.”

Even Jesus needed to go off to a silent place to commune with God. A “deserted place” would be a place of peace and quiet…a place to simply be in the presence of the Divine Presence. It was after this time of silent prayer that Jesus had clarity of purpose…such clarity that even though everyone was looking for him…despite this popularity…he knew that he had to leave and move on to the nearby villages. “For this purpose have I come.” There are many voices competing for your attention…but what is the Inner Voice telling you to do? If you are not setting aside silent time to commune with the Divine Presence…how will you ever live your Divine purpose?
