“He said the them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31
In this passage above we learn that Jesus and His apostles were doing ministry. In fact, they had worked with such vigor that they hadn’t even gotten a decent meal in their belly. In response, Jesus invited them to get away with Him so they could find some rest and rejuvenation in His presence. ” “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” We do need to withdraw — not once-in-a-while, but often, daily! What is incredible is that Jesus invites his disciples to withdraw with him to a quiet place and rest with Him. This same invitation given to the apostles is extended to you and I. Jesus invited them to get away with Him so they could find some rest and rejuvenation in His presence. God wants you to pause and be His captive audience in this very moment. Go with Him to a quiet place: to be still, to gaze into His eyes, to worship Him in Spirit and in truth, to be lost in His glory, and found by His grace – to find rest. Fix your gaze on His beautiful, blazing, mercy-filled eyes, and give Him your full attention. He will meet you at your need and sustain you one day at a time. Spend some sacred quiet time with Jesus today.
