We read of Jesus: “And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.” Mark 1:35 KJV
When the sun is up and shining, there’s still a greater light…
that’s with us through the daytime and deep into the night.
God’s Word lights every pathway when, on it, we’ve meditated;
its everlasting words are the Truth that will never be outdated.
Before the day would dawn, Jesus prayed and sought to hear
direction from His Father–very early, drawing near.
As believers, we need prayer, the Holy Spirit, and the Word–
We walk in greatest confidence once the voice of God is heard.
