Luke 4:42 “And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them.”
Luke 4:43 “And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.”
Our Lord Jesus just had a very tiring day. He taught people in the synagogue, casted out demon from a possessed man and had an all night service where he healed several people and preached too. Then, in the morning he showed us how important the concept of prioritization is.
In going about his day he set his priorities right. Jesus started his typical day by seperating himself from the crowd, to seek the face of God and clear his head for the new day. The crowd in our lives includes the ups and downs of the previous day, our stress, our failures and even successes. Most of us get carried away with the “crowd”, that we forget to handle the fresh day well. Some people even get depressed by carrying over the stress and disappointments of the previous day,
Jesus knew it’s a new day and each day comes with it’s own demands and must be handled as such. You need to know how to stay away from the crowd. If you don’t stay away from the crowd, you’ll end up with wrong priorities.
One other major reason he stayed away from the crowd was for the sake of communion, to seek the Father’s counsel for the new day. The following scripture shows that cleary:
Luke 5:16 “And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.”
Luke 5:16 “But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” (NIV)
Jesus starts a typical day by seeking the Father’s face for the new day and thanking Him for the previous. In seeking God’s face for the new day we need to clear our head, then sort out how the new day should be. What we will do first, second etc…to be continued
