The Power of Solitude
As I continue my journey through the Daniel Plan, I’ve noticed that I am most comforted when I am alone. Do I love to fellowship with my family of faith at my church? Yes. Do I enjoy nice chats with my coworkers? Yes. Am I thankful for the support and presence of family and friends? Yes. And I try to surround myself with people who love the Lord and seek to live their lives according to His will.
But there’s just something powerful about solitude.
Rick Warren identifies certain actions that can help you get God’s power. He highlights prayer, obedience, and victories of trials and tribulations as necessary ingredients to obtain God’s power. I find that those actions can be supported by having quiet time in solitude.
In solitude, I tend to meditate after reading His word. In solitude, I get a chance to pray and listen to His response. In solitude, I reflect on certain aspects of my life and try to better align those aspects in order to glorify His name.
There are many other things that are powerful about solitude. What are some things that you gain while in solitude?
