Proverbs 3:5

If God fails us, we are damned. If God comes through, we are saved forever. Real trust is that blunt and daring and simple.
– Ray Ortlund

Pseudo-faith always arranges a way out to serve in case God fails it. Real faith knows only one way and gladly allows itself to be stripped of any second way or makeshift substitutes. For true faith, it is either God or total collapse. And not since Adam stood up on the earth has God failed a single man or woman who trusted him.
– A.W. Tozer
