Daily Comfort

I relied completely on the Lord, and he turned toward me and heard my cry for help. — Ps 40:1 NET

Has God taught you some great truth, or revealed to you, in deep personal experience, some new, sweet thought of his love? What is the next thing? Is it not that you shall whisper the blessed secret to some other soul? After Peter’s strange vision, he sat pondering what it could mean; and while he thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, “Behold, three men seek you.” The picture is very suggestive. When we have gotten anything from God–there is always someone waiting to get from us what God has just given to us. Heavenly visions are not shown to us, only to be absorbed in our own soul–but to be translated into some form that will bless the world. That is what the artist does with his visions. That is what we should do with ours.
