When was the last time you were able to make time to linger in God’s presence for as long as you and He needed? For many of us, the most difficult problem is not carving out the time, but being persuaded that it is important enough to give our self permission to set aside the time.

“God desires various tarrying places for all of us where He can teach us in special ways.” — Richard J. Foster

“Could you not tarry with Me one hour?” Jesus asks {Matthew 26:38} To tarry means to be slow or delay leaving a place. It means to linger and to wait.

Before Jesus went to the cross, He told His disciples to wait, to stay in the city because He was going to send what the Father promised, His Holy Spirit. “Tarry until you have been endowed. Tarry until you have been clothed with power. Tarry until you have been provided for, supplied with, and equipped with all you have need of to accomplish God’s will and purpose.”

What if these are still Jesus’ words to us as an answer to our prayer for strength? “Tarry with Me.”

{Luke 24:49, Hebrews 13:21}
