I dare you!

But you will never find out what God’s hesed can do unless you dare to take risks. The only people who really know about His hesed are the people who intentionally reach beyond their own abilities and their own resources. If you play it safe, you will never know that He keeps covenant with you. But if you will risk everything for Him, you will find He keeps covenant, and more than that, does hesed, with those who belong to Him.— Lectures in Old Testament Theology, page 180

Go ahead! I dare you! Take the risk and actually walk by faith!

We are too comfortable; we don't need God for most of what we do. The infrastructure takes care of so much that we live under the illusion of self-sufficiency...
