Read Mark 6:30-34 one more time.
# 1 was, “REFLECT ON YOUR ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAY, WEEK, MONTH AND YEAR, VERSE. 30.”
II. GET AWAY BY YOURSELF AND REST AWHILE, VERSE 31.
That leads us to a very important part of every Christian’s life here today.
III. CREATE SOME LEISURE TIME IN YOUR LIFE.
A. For yourself
B. With your family
IV. DON’T FEEL GUILTY ABOUT GETTING AWAY VERSE 32.
Again, if Jesus needed to get away by Himself, how much more should we?
Into a desert place by ship privately.Without making their plan known. They intended to go privately; however, their plan became known, but multitudes followed them.
V. GIVE THE FIRST HOUR OF EACH TO GOD VERSES 33-35.
Mark 1:35, “And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.”
The day passes quickly and before you know it the day has passed you by with a busy schedule. Take time for God first thing in the morning.
VI. THEN TRUST GOD TO MEET YOUR EVERY NEED VERSES 39-44.
Wow, what a miracle! Once again, proving:
Proverbs 3:5-6 and Philippians 4:19, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
We cannot overemphasize the importance of adults, teens and younger children making a good and right start in the very beginning of each day, week month and year and life.
Challenge: Begin to practice these principles as of today!
