Psalms and Proverbs – Finding Peace

Be still2

We all have days when we are mentally worn out and physically tired. Today is that day for me. Perhaps it is yours as well. I take to heart the many verses in the New Testament that speak of Jesus withdrawing to “lonely” places to pray. At times we all need to draw the curtains, shut off the phone, hide the car keys or walking shoes, and take the time to truly rest. A blessed Sabbath Day to you.

And when day came, He departed to a lonely place; and the multitudes were searching for Him, and came to Him, and tried to keep Him from going away from them. (Luke 4:42)

But He Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray. (Luke 5:16)

And it was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to God. (Luke 6:12)
