Browne: solitude

Monday, February 8, 2021
“Am I only a God nearby,”
        declares the LORD,
    “and not a God far away?
Can anyone hide in secret places
    so that I cannot see him?”
        declares the LORD.
“Do not I fill heaven and earth?”
        declares the LORD.
    —Jeremiah 23:23-24 (NIV)
    Be able to be alone. Lose not the advantage of solitude, ... but delight to be alone and single with Omnipresency.
    ... Sir Thomas Browne (1605-1682), Christian Morals [op. post. 1716], London: Henry Washbourne, 1845, p. 45 (see the book)
    See also Jer. 23:23-24; 1 Kings 8:27; Ps. 139:2,7-13; Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 1:45; Luke 5:16; John 14:16-18; 16:32; 1 Cor. 3:16; Col. 2:9-10; Rev. 21:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, by grace, You are present to Your church.
