I love the book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. Sam I am pesters a poor unsuspecting fellow to try green eggs and ham. Sam hammers the guy with question after question, “Would you eat them in a box? Would you eat them with a fox?”
So I have some questions for you.
If God grew silent and your prayers went unanswered, could you, would you still pray?
If God removed the sense of His presence, could you, would you still worship?
If verses stopped jumping off the page, could you, would you still read God’s word?
If everyone around you talked about God like He spoke audibly, every day, but you don’t hear a thing, could you, would you still listen?
If everyone around you received a prophetic word, and you didn’t, could you, would you still trust that God has a plan for you?
If everyone around you spoke in tongues, and you didn’t, could you, would you still believe your value equals theirs? That you’re not a second-class spiritual citizen?
If every sensory part of your relationship with God was gone, could you, would you still remain faithful to Him?
Could you, would you stand on faith, the word of God, and nothing more?
Could you? Would you?
For the Great I Am, I could. I would.
And many times, I do. You can too.
