Spiritual Retreat. Where Can A Man Find A Quieter Or More Untroubled Retreat Than In His Soul?
Isaiah 30:15– “For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.”
The God That Encountered Abraham, Isaac And Israel Shall Locate You, In The Name Of Jesus. Amen.
The secret of strength lies in quietness. The state of quietness is greatly praised in the Bible. Noise does not indicate strength. It has been well said that an empty barrel makes the loudest noise. Quiet forces are the most powerful. The force of light is quiet. The force of gravitation is also quiet. If we must learn to be strong, we must learn quietness. The reason for our shallowness is lack of quiet time. Solitude is being lonely by choice.
There is power in being alone with God. The greatest men who have made impact are the people who have been quiet. In Genesis 32:24, the Bible says that Jacob was left alone. Being alone with God has a therapeutic, renewing, re-energising and strengthening power. It is when you separate yourself to pray that He is able to mould you to what He can use.
Another name for being alone with God is retreat. It is a time God can use to transform you to another man. In a retreat, you will gain strength, get refreshed and renewed.
Many don’t like to go on retreat. Those that were quiet heard from God. Noah was a lonely man. Abraham was a lonely man. Jacob was in a mess when he was alone with God. He was remoulded. Enoch walked with God successfully because he knew how to be alone with God and to commune with Him. Moses spent quality time with God in fasting and praying and was an outstanding prophet.
Spending time with God can help us hear our inner-most voice. Retreat is staying away from people, computers, phones, newspapers, games, music, tablets etc. Retreat may be getting to work earlier than everybody and placing your head on the locker and having your quiet time. It may be going to a peaceful corner during break in your place of work. The question is: Have you ever heard the Lord’s still small voice? When last were you quiet for 30 minutes? Are you able to just sit down without the noise of the radio, television or internet and meditate?
Beloved, God comes to us in our quiet moments to speak to us and teach us. You need to have regular retreats if you want to be a champion for God in this generation.
1. Any ancient battle in my life, die, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
2. Every battle assigned to waste my time and years, die, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

4. Opportunity wasters, your time is up, die, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
5. O God, arise and teach me to be quiet, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
6. O God, arise and teach me to be teachable, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
7. Begin to thank God for a new beginning. Amen.
If you have been blessed by this Christian blog site, and you haven’t
given your life to Christ Jesus, I now invite you to make Jesus Christ The Lord
of your life by sincerely saying this prayer:
“Dear Lord God, My Heavenly Father, I come to You in the
Name of Jesus Christ. Your Word says, “…..whosoever
shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21).
I ask Jesus to come into my heart to be the LORD of my life.
I receive eternal life into my spirit and according to Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth
the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from
the dead, thou shalt be saved,” I declare that I am saved; I am born –
again; I am a child of God! I now have Christ dwelling in me, and greater is He
that is in me than he that is in the world! (1 John 4:4). I now walk in the
consciousness of my new life in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah! Amen!
Congratulations! You are now a child of God.
Always, expect a new post daily!
THANK YOU JESUS.
