Solitude, Is it Good?

The Bible speaks of solitude as a valuable practice. Solitude is a “time alone with God” so God can examine us, and we can feel His Presence. It CAN BE a time of knowing God more deeply, a time of strengthening, a time of refreshment, a time of sharing our deepest concerns with God, and a time of simply being with our heavenly Father who formed us and loves us beyond anything we can ever comprehend!

Another benefit of these special times of solitude is that we can refocus on WHAT is truly important in this life on Earth. We need time spent away from others, away from cell phones, away from computers, away from TV, away from the daily routine. We must not allow the “worries of this life” to choke out the Word. Mark 4:19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. (KJV) 
We must instead, desire to spend time with Jesus and, like Mary of Bethany, sit at His Feet and  hear His Word. Luke 10:39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word. (KJV)  

The practice of solitude, like other religious practices, can be taken to an unhealthy extreme. Solitude is not a place to live. We are not to be hermits or stay away from society. BUT . . . in order to fully enjoy our relationship with God, we must have solitude when we relate with God one-on-one.

The best example is Jesus, who “often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.”
Luke 5:16 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed. (KJV)  

Jesus, God Incarnate, spent time alone with His Father. If He did, it would really be wise for us to do the same thing! We see Jesus seeking out solitude after performing miracles. Mark 1:35 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. (KJV)  

We see Jesus seeking out solitude in times of grief. Matthew 14:13 When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities. (KJV)  

We see Jesus seeking out solitude before choosing the twelve apostles. Luke 6:12-13  And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. 13  And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles; (KJV)

We see Jesus seeking out solitude in His distress in Gethsemane. Luke 22:39-44 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him. 40  And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. 41  And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 42  Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. 43  And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.
44  And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground
. (KJV)

Solitude was a consistent practice in Jesus’ life. Jesus invited His disciples to share times of solitude (group solitude) with Him. Mark 6:31-32 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. 32  And they departed into a desert place by ship privately. (KJV) . . . They went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place.
