Are You Making Time For Private Time?

1 In the spring of the year, the time when kings go out to battle, David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel. And they ravaged the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained at Jerusalem. ~ 2 Samuel 11:1

King David sent Joab to do the job he himself should have been doing. Too often, we rely on someone else to do our praising for us. We come to church and sit back content with the person next to us raising their hands in worship or singing to the LORD. We can’t get too emotional. We can’t let done our guarded dignity. What if someone sees us shed a tear? You know real men don’t cry.

We are satisfied with listening to a message and never applying it to our own lives. Well, that message was for someone else, not for me. We’ve even stopped praying for ourselves; we call the preacher and the prayer team to pray for us? Now I’m not putting down the power of agreement in prayer, but when we send for someone else to do our praying for us, we are in big trouble.

The truth is, it is everyone’s job to have their own private time with God so that He can refill, renew and replenish us. It is in those times that we learn to lean on the everlasting arm of the LORD. Private time is that important. If you don’t have one, then you give the Devil the opportunity to lead you into sin.

Dear LORD God, please help us to see the importance of private time. Give us the desire to have private time with You, that we might make it a priority in our lives. So that when temptations or tribulations come, we will be prepared. We will have a strong foundation to stand on. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
