The more full the exterior gets, the empty the interior feels.
Sometimes we feel like we don’t have the time or energy for prayer. Perhaps we don’t feel up to. But, what if prayer gives us time, energizes us, and even moves us to experience positive emotion?
Prayer fills the interior.
What is the thing that you turn to fill yourself up quickly? What are the exterior things we use to fill ourselves up instead of allowing ourselves to be deeply nourished in the interior?
The interior needs to be developed. Ultimately, we need more of God. We need God to come and show up with his power. God wants us to go into the wilderness to meet him in prayer to be developed.
