Time Alone With God
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; he has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:1-3
Time alone with God has a divine purpose. We set time aside for hair appointments, doctor and dentist appointments and they seem so important that we schedule them even months in advance. However, time alone with God is where the real change takes place in our lives.
During our time alone with God, we are forgiven, released, refreshed, and renewed. In the presence of God, we are healed, encouraged, restored and transformed.
A divine exchange takes place: beauty is given for ashes, strength for weakness and joy for mourning. This divine exchange can only happen as you commit to spend time alone with God.
