  • THE HOUR of ISOLATION -by David Wilkerson.


    -by David Wilkerson.

    I know what it is like to face divine silence, not to hear Godīs voice

    for a season. I have walked through periods of total confusion with

    no apparent guidance, the still small voice behind me completely

    silent. There were times when I had no friend nearby to satisfy my

    heart with a word of advice. All my patterns of guidance from before

    had gone awry, and I was left in total darkness. I could not see my

    way, and I made mistake after mistake. I wanted to say, "O God,

    what has happened? I donīt know which way to go!"

    Does God really hide his face from those he loves? Isnīt it possible

    he lifts his hand for a short while to teach us trust and dependence?

    The Bible answers clearly: "God left him [Hezekiah], to try him,

    that he might know all that was in his heart" (2 Chronicles 32:31).

    You may be going through a flood of trials right now. You know

    what Iīm talking about when I say the heavens are as brass. You

    know all about repeated failures. Youīve waited and waited for

    answers to prayer. Youīve been served a cup of affliction. Nothing

    and nobody can touch that need in your heart!

    Thatīs the time to take your stand! You donīt have to be able to

    laugh or rejoice, because you may not have any happiness at the

    moment. In fact, you may have nothing but turmoil in your soul.

    But you can know God is still with you, because Scripture says,

    "The Lord sitteth upon the flood; yea, the Lord sitteth King for ever"

    (Psalm 29:10).

    Soon you will hear His voice: Donīt get excited, donīt panic. Just

    keep your eyes on me. Commit all things to me. And you will

    know that you remain the object of his incredible love.

    Note from Lou:

    Isaiah 50 NIV

    10 Who among you fears the Lord
    and obeys the word of his servant?
    Let the one who walks in the dark,
    who has no light,
    trust in the name of the Lord
    and rely on their God.
    11 But now, all you who light fires
    and provide yourselves with flaming torches,
    go, walk in the light of your fires
    and of the torches you have set ablaze.
    This is what you shall receive from my hand:
    You will lie down in torment.
