In the year that king Uzziah died, I saw the Lord.
Isaiah 6:1

Our soul's history with God is frequently the history of
the "passing of the hero." Over and over again God has
to remove our friends in order to bring Himself in their
place, and that is where we faint and fail and get dis-
couraged. Take it personally: In the year that the one
who stood to me for all that God was, died--I gave up
everything? I became ill? I got disheartened? or--I
saw the Lord?

My vision of God depends upon the state of my charac-
ter. Character determines revelation. Before I can say,
"I saw the Lord," there must be something correspond-
ing to God in my character. Until I am born again and
begin to see the Kingdom of God, I see along the line
of my prejudices only; I need the surgical operation of
external events and an internal purification.

It must be God first, God second, and God third, until
the life is faced steadily with God, and no one else is
of any account whatever. "In all the world there is none
but thee, my God, there is none but thee."

Keep paying the price. Let God see that you are willing
to live up to the vision. Oswald Chambers 1874-1917
