Wilderness Time

“It was but a little that I passed from them, but I found Him whom my soul loves….  Song of Solomon 3:4
It was “but a little” that I passed from them (our dependence on hearing from the Lord through others), that I found Him.  This is a “wilderness time” (time of testing), in which we are separated from the spiritual womb where we have been very comfortable, into a new place and level of relationship and attainment.  Our tendency, rather than to wait and allow the Lord to bring the adjustment, is for us to go back to the place where we were comfortable.
