Matthew 14:17-19 ... The disciples said to Jesus, "We have here five loaves and two fishes." He said, "Bring them here to Me." Jesus commanded to multitude to sit down on the grass. He took the five loaves and the two fishes and looking up into Heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
Verse 23 ... When He had sent the multitudes away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray, and when the evening was come, He was there alone.
Why did He go to the mountain to pray? He needed to get directions for His next move of the Holy Spirit.
We believers need to do the same thing. We need to get away, to be alone, away from distractions ... to pray and to hear from the Lord.
