Jesus often withdrew to lonely places to get alone with His Father.
Jesus lived His days face-to-face with the Father, seeking His presence, renewing His strength, and receiving instructions for His ministry.
The Scriptures tell us that Jesus only did what His Father in Heaven told Him to do (John 15:15).
In our productivity-driven society, it's so easy to get caught up in the doing and forget that the Christian life is about abiding in Christ.
Everything we do must flow from the indwelling Spirit within us.
This is why withdrawing to lonely places and seeking the presence of the Lord is so important.
For it is in His presence we find strength.
It is in His presence we are renewed.
It is in His presence we are fully satisfied.
It is from His presence that we can with unveiled faces live out afresh our calling and purpose.

Practicing silence and solitude is a spiritual discipline. This means it doesn't come naturally for us to slow down and seek the presence of God.
However, God is looking for people who will live face-to-face with him (Psalm 11:4-7).
The best way to grow in discipline is to grow in wisdom, and we grow in wisdom as we study God's Word and apply it in our lives.
