ILLUSTRATION Houston pastor John Bisagno describes a time when his daughter Melody, age five, came to him and asked for a doll house. John promptly nodded and promised to build her one, then he went back to reading his book. Soon he glanced out the study window and saw her arms filled with dishes, toys, and dolls, making trip after trip until she had a great pile of playthings in the yard. He asked his wife what Melody was doing. “Oh, you promised to build her a doll house, and she believes you. She’s just getting ready for it.” John thought he had been hit by an atom bomb. He threw aside that book, raced to the lumber yard for supplies, and quickly built that little girl a doll house. Now when asked why he did respond? Because I wanted to? No. Because she deserved it? No. Her daddy had given his word, and she believed it and acted upon it. When I saw her faith, nothing could keep me from carrying out my word.” God is greater than John Bisagno and every time we act responsibly because of faith in Him, He responds. Because He is faithful and pleased to see that we believe in Him.
