Prioritize prayer. Why? Because … It will give you direction in life. Because many times you don’t know how to choose. Life is about choices.
Ptr. Peter Tan-chi, Pray Like Jesus 2016
In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there. Simon and his companions searched for Him; they found Him, and said to Him, “Everyone is looking for You.” He said to them, “Let us go somewhere else to the towns nearby, so that I may preach there also; for this is what I came for.” (Mark 1:35-38 NASB)
The more you know God, the more you know about Jesus, your trust and confidence is now transferred to the Lord. And because your confidence is transferred to the Lord, you don’t need to always have the approval of men, you’re no longer man-centered, you become God-centered.
The best and sweetest years of my life so far have been those that i gave wholeheartedly to serving, loving, following and obeying God and when i’m tempted to replace this love for God with something else, i tell myself, nothing is better than Christ, nothing will ever satisfy me more than to seek His will to love Him and obey Him.
