“And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand.  “At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision:”

~Dan. 9:22-23 NKJV

Lightbulbs.  I have been training or teaching for over twenty years and one of my favorite things about this work is to see the “Ah - Ha!” moments come across people’s faces. It is as if a lightbulb clicks on over their head and whatever they were in the dark about - they see clearly.  But the understanding did not magically appear. It came from seeking it out. It came from asking for help. It came from staying around long enough to receive the answer.

Asking for help is the first part; considering, or sticking around to receive, is the next part before we begin to understand.  When we consider and begin to receive we will bENCOURAGd so that we can encourage others.
