They Didn't Turn Anywhere Else



He had an urgent need.
Bur his friend was sleeping.
He knocked anyway.

His friend said, “Go away!”
But he had nowhere else to turn.
So he kept knocking.

And he received. (Luke 11:5-8)




She ached for her daughter’s healing.
But Jesus was silent.
She asked anyway.

Jesus gave no encouragement.
But she had nowhere else to turn.
So she kept asking.

And she received. (Mark 7:24-30)

I wonder.

Does God’s silence mean He’s waiting?

Is He waiting to see if we’ll turn somewhere else?

None of us has anywhere else to turn.

Unbelief tells us to try anyway. To stop knocking, and search elsewhere for the answer that isn’t coming.

Faith shouts at us to knock.

And keep knocking.

Keep knocking at the door that opens to persistent knocking.

When the answer comes, it will be said of us, “They didn’t turn anywhere else.”



“He spoke a parable to them,
that men always ought to pray and not lose heart.” (Luke 18:1)
