“You know, I really want to help people. But there’s so much pain and hurt in the world, I don’t even know where to begin!”
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: There are needs everywhere we look. It was the same way in Jesus’ time. How did He set priorities?
We get an idea from these words in Mark 1: “Very early in the morning while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went off to a solitary place where he prayed.”
The disciples finally found Jesus, expecting Him to minister to the large crowds in the town where they were. But Jesus said, “We’re going on to the next town.” He had gotten quiet enough to discover His Father’s priorities for that day.
That’s what you and I need to do through time in prayer and in the Word of God. If you ever feel like you don’t know what God wants you to do, maybe the solution is to sit still long enough to get the Father’s direction.
