Thursday's Quote | Even If He Doesn't


"And what if He doesn't?"

What if He doesn't - what if He doesn't do what we plea, what we pray,
what we believe He can and sill do and should do?

And the three men before the fire, they whisper that startling answer to Daniel,
the answer of all holy writ and writing humanity:

"And even if He doesn't" -

Even if He doesn't do what we beg, we are still His beloved.

Even if He doesn't, He still is.

Even if He doesn't do what we will, His will is still right and His heart is still good and the people of God will not waver. Real prayer has eyes on Christ, not the crisis.

Even if He doesn't - He does give enough - Himself.

Even if He doesn't - He does still love us.

"If He doesn't - I will still believe. Still believe - in Him."

- Ann Voskamp, A Holy Experience
