Why is it that people always talk about getting away for a break, going away on vacation, escaping for a weekend, and running away from everything for a retreat and so very seldom speak of drawing away from their day-to-day lives to spend a time away in the presence of the Lord? Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior of the world, even He had to get away at times. But He didn’t go to the number one vacation spot, or sneak away to a spa for a weekend. He drew away from the crowds to spend time with our Father in heaven.

At the end of the day, when we stand before the Lord, I wonder how interested the Lord will be in hearing us give account of all of the wonderful vacations we took through the course of our lives. Is it possible that our get-away’s will amount to very little in the grand scheme of things? Is it conceivable that the best time we can ever spend in drawing away from our daily routines is when we choose to designate a period of time – whether at home or away – in the secret place of the most high? In our prayer closets with our doors shut to the noise, chaos, and distractions of the world? In the presence of our Father, Creator of the world? At the feet of Jesus?

Is it time for a get-away? Instead of calling the travel agent, or packing your suitcase for a trip with your buddies to the beach, why not commit a time of prayer, praise, worship, seeking, listening, and, above all else, loving in the presence of the Lord? Jesus already paid the price for this get-away. He died on the cross and rose again to pay the penalty for our sins so we would repent and place our faith in Him and be able to have intimate fellowship with the Lord of Lords, King of Kings, the Lord God almighty. There ain’t no vacation that can compare to a get-away with Him.

And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed. – Luke 5:16 KJV

It was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to God. – Luke 6:12 NASB

In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there. – Mark 1:35
