We want to have success in witnessing to people about the Lord Jesus and the salvation He brings.
2 Corinthians 4:4 says that we need to take the blinders off their eyes so that they can see and hear the Truth when we share it with them. We know that when we share with them about the Lord, some will not believe.
God knows whether someone's going to accept Him or not. We need to ask Him for divine appointments ... before we witness to somebody. "Why should I waste my time, Lord, going out there to witness when they're really not interested in hearing about You yet?" Divine appointments! He knows who is ready to hear and receive. Then I can go and expose the Glory to them.
Intimacy is the key and faith is the catalyst. A husband and wife know each other more than any other single human being on the Earth. They live together, and they learn to know each other ... this is intimacy.
A lot of times you'll know your spouse's response before questions are even asked ... sometimes you don't even have to make it verbal. You just understand the other person's body language regarding something ... and you two are the only ones who can recognize this. This is a glimpse of what intimacy is all about.
We must be so intimate with Jesus that we don't have to ask ... we just know Him so much that we'll know His response. When we get so intimate with Jesus, we'll just start walking like He did. We'll start talking like Jesus, and doing what He did.
This is where God wants us, and all the Truths that we're learning are going to be manifeste in the natural realm.
