When Jesus saw his ministry drawing huge crowds, he climbed a hillside. Those who were apprenticed to him, the committed, climbed with him. Arriving at a quiet place, he sat down and taught his climbing companions. This is what he said: Matthew 5:1-2 MSG

You can only grow deeper in your understanding of God, His ways and His purposes only when you spend quality time with Him to learn in His Word and prayers. While it is very important to engage in Church activities and be diligent at work, when those activities replace your time alone with God you stand the risk of spending your life on dead works.

On the contrary, when you’re in constant personal communion with God, He’s able to disclose Himself to you first hand, clothe you with His full armour, develop your spiritual muscles and stamina so that you may be able to stand against every scheme of the Devil particularly in these last days.

Your relationship with Jesus is non-negotiable, so, let nothing rob you of the joy of His presence. May the Lord help you to daily walk with Him and to continue to dwell in His secret place where no assailant can penetrate. Good morning and do have a wonderful and blessed weekend.

Your brother,
