No Time to Pray
Luke 6:12 Now during those days he went out to the mountain to pray; and he spent the night in prayer to God.
Sometimes, we’re faced with big decisions. Decisions – that can change the course of our lives.
Big decisions can be exciting. Should I marry so-and-so? Should I buy this house? Should I take this job? But they can be scary. Make the wrong choice and, well … the consequences can be disastrous.
If only we could know how the different options would play themselves out.
Jesus had a big decision to make. Choosing twelve Disciples. Men to whom He would ultimately entrust the fledgling Church. A new movement born in tumultuous times.
Who to pick?
So He went up to a mountain and He spent the night there in prayer to God. And then, when day came, He called all His disciples together and chose twelve.
Why – why did He pray?
Because it’s in those quiet, beautiful times alone with God – those times when we just don’t know which choice to make; it’s in those times, that we hear His quiet, still, mighty, wonderful voice.
