Since God rest from his labor, we, as his creation, ought to do the same. However as Christians, we’ve fallen into a state of not having enough “space” with our heavenly Father. The hustle and bustle of today’s society can cause us to loose our space. We’ve become more stretch in our assignments, work load or demands in places of employment, at home, even in church functions that cause us to say – when will I have time with God?
Jesus didn’t find it hard to become distance and have space to commune with God. When Jesus compel his disciples to go to the other side by ship and sent the multitudes who followed him away, had space by going into the mountains to pray alone in the evening (Matthew 14:22-23, KJV). Jesus is found to pray all night to God in the mountains (Luke 6:12, KJV), and at the Garden of Gethsemane, he told his disciples, Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, to “sit here while I go and pray over there” (Matthew 26:36, NKJV). Jesus always finds a place of solitude during time of distress and to feel connected with the Father. If we as Christians find ourselves making these familiar statements, such as, “where does the time go”, “time sure flies” or “I need my own space” (in which I found myself saying from time to time), then we need to examine how we’ve allowed our space to become invaded with clutter and find seclusion from a world fill with anxiety. The word of God admonished us not to be ignorant that “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” (2Peter 3:8, KJV) Let us be “lost in space” with our Father, taking off the limits for his love is immeasurable; time with him is unrestricted -- we have all access with Him.
