  1. Expectation is frequently that God goes ahead of us and eliminates obstacles, smoothing/leveling our course. Resistance is often seen as a sign of God leading us some other direction or us going wrong way. Obstacles removed do not mean obstacles don't return three fold.
  2. Consent is a pathway that leads to further consents. This is true not only referring to righteous matters but also wicked or passive.
