‘And after He had dismissed the multitudes, He went up into the hills by Himself to pray. When it was evening, He was still there alone.’ Matthew 14:23
May the God of comfort give you rest.
Find below a summary of a day in the life of Jesus:
Morning: He went about doing good
Before noon: He was informed that his cousin, the baptist, had been beheaded. He withdrew to a solitary place by himself.
Afternoon: Out of compassion, he healed the sick
Evening: Jesus fed 5000 people
Night: Withdrew alone to pray
Today, we emulate different people and their ways of life because of what they have achieved. So, I present Jesus. A man filled with the Spirit of God, the savior of humanity. He understood the reason for his birth, and on the day of John’s beheading, executed it to perfection. I noticed he needed time alone that day, he needed to be with God. For comfort, peace, wisdom, I can’t say, but he never said no to the people. He never looked away, even for a minute, no matter how difficult the situation. He was the life and the light.
His relationship with his father enabled him to live out the destiny for which he was created. We all have lives planned by God to bring Him glory, so we can choose to be like Jesus or to emulate others. By the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus walked the earth as God, though a man, and he calls us to continue in the light. That the eyes of the blind may be opened, that the deaf may hear, and the weak strengthened. All this, regardless of our own circumstances.
Jesus didn’t focus on himself, he had a job to do. We also cannot keep focusing on life, staying trapped in, and by it. We all have jobs to do for the kingdom, and God is waiting for his own. He never promised that life would be easy, but assures us of peace, grace, and mercy in our times of need.
What’s a day in your life like?
Till next time, be transformed!!
