Genesis 18:31-33 (NIV)
“Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?” He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.” When the Lord had finished speaking with Abraham, he left, and Abraham returned home.”
“Abraham was satisfied. He did not need to drop his figure any lower. Whether Sodom was consumed or not, the universe was on a solid footing. The storm might be terrible and its havoc beyond belief. Yet all was well. Abraham had grown into a larger man with a greater God. Prayer had changed him.” (John White, Daring to Draw Near)
“God is inviting, coaxing, luring us into a deeper place of knowing him so that we can have reassurance, whatever he decides concerning the things we desire so much…that it will be good, right and loving. Do you want to know God like that? This is when God becomes larger… that we are secure in all his ways, whatever he decides, whatever we have or not because God is Good, Righteous and God is Love itself.” (P. Jason P.)
Prayer: Heavenly Father, transform us into the larger men and women of prayer who will trust you in greater measure than ever before – to be able to say in every circumstance, “all is well.” In Jesus’ name, amen.
