 THE HOUR OF ISOLATION David Wilkerson

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2010
THE HOUR OF ISOLATION

I know what it is like to face divine silence, not to hear God’s 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 don’t know which way to go!”

Does God really hide his face from those he loves? Isn’t 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 I’m talking about when I say the heavens are as brass. You know all about repeated failures. You’ve waited and waited for answers to prayer. You’ve been served a cup of affliction. Nothing and nobody can touch that need in your heart!

That’s the time to take your stand! You don’t 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: Don’t get excited, don’t 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.

I believe these times come to us because of the lack of dependence and love for God in our hearts and God wants to draw us to Himself more deeply in reliance for Him in prayer.

Oh may God allow us to deepen our faith walk with Him. And for anyone going through this time don't worry God has not forsaken you. He loves you and is drawing you to Himself more. Though it seems very hard and you can't imagine feeling like this for another month do know God will see you through this season of your walk with Him.

Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart,

now, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them?

Luke 18:1,7
