â€œImmediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. After leaving them, he went up on a mountainside to pray.â€ – Mark 6:45-46
He was exhausted, completely worn out from dealing with people and their problems. What He needed was a rest. He got away to spend some time alone with God. When He did, His spirit was renewed and refreshed. When the crowds came, He was able to respond, to care for them and meet their needs.
His name was Jesus Christ and He was the busiest man who ever lived. He accomplished more than anyone did before or since his time here.
We live in a very fast-paced world with great demands on our time, yet no one has ever been busier than Jesus when He walked on this earth. Why not learn from Him when youâ€™re frazzled, exhausted, and burned out. Take some time to be with God. If Jesus needed some time alone with God, surely we do, as well.
