Hmm... and I did hesitate before putting the face in. I mean that we need faith most of the time, not just with respect to God directly. Faith in the dollar, faith in combustion engines, faith in tap water, faith in pills, and most importantly faith in people--including ourselves. I guess I winked because it also takes a lot of faith in God to think about Him teaching us--in a condescending parental kind of way--a lesson in faith by giving us so many problems to deal with apparently all on our own.
Was your whole post relevant to my wink? I'm not sure I followed it all wrt God proving Himself.
