When Jesus began his ministry and after a couple of times of preaching and praying for the people, He would turn aside and go and pray quietly. He had to restore His spiritual energy. Without that restoration, He knew He would run out of gas. When Jesus sent the disciples out 2 by 2, they were preaching and healing the people. As they returned, Jesus had them to withdraw from the crowds of people. They needed to be renewed and restored by God. But even as they were in boats, the crowds followed. When they reached shore, the crowd wasn’t as big, but Jesus went up into the mountains and taught. This is where He did the miracle of the loaves and fishes. Staying close to God is the key to restoration. This is what our Father has always wanted.
