Luke 11:5-8 ” Then the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children are with me in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ “

A man goes to his friend’s house at midnight looking for bread…but is told to “Go away!”  In this story, his friend appears not to care about the man’s dilemma.  Likewise for us, there are times when it appears to be a shrouding of God’s friendship for us…or at least times when we go through seasons of spiritual confusion.  The Lord will seem like a  distant, unkind and uncaring friend that won’t answer our calls.  It’s during those times of spiritual confusion that we need to hold steadfast to what we already know…that God is faithful, trustworthy, and true.  And we need to keep doing the right things…reading our Bible, praying, and maintaining our walk…all with tenacity.  For later on in the story, because of the man’s stubborn persistence…his friend did get up and give him bread.
