God has to hide from us what He does until by personal character we get to the place where He can reveal it.

From Revelation 4:1:  “After this I looked, and there in heaven a door stood open!  And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, ‘Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.'”

Are you debating whether to take a step in faith in Jesus or to wait until you can see how to do the thing yourself?  Obey Him with glad reckless joy.

From John 11:7-9:  “Then after this He said to the disciples, ‘Let us go to Judea again.”  The disciples said to Him, ‘Rabbi, the Jews were just now trying to stone you, and are you going there again?’  Jesus answered, ‘Are there not twelve hours of daylight?  Those who walk during the day do not stumble, because they see the light of this world.'”

The discipline of dismay is an essential necessity in the life of discipleship.  When the darkness of dismay comes, endure until it is over, because out of it will come that following of Jesus which is an unspeakable joy.

From Mark 10:32:  “They were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of them; they were amazed.”

We need to learn this secret of the burning heart.  When God gives a vision, transact business on that line, no matter what it costs.

From Luke 24:30-32:  [On the road to Emmaus] “When He was at the table with them, He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them.  Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight.  They said to each other, ‘Were not our hearts burning within us while He was talking to us on the road, while He was opening the scriptures to us?'”

We are not saved to be “channels only,” but to be sons and daughters of God.  We are not turned into spiritual mediums, but into spiritual messengers; the message must be part of ourselves.

From 2 Timothy 4:2:  “Proclaim the message; be persistent whether the time is favorable or unfavorable; convince, rebuke, and encourage, with the utmost patience in teaching.”
