Luke 18: 1-8. And He told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart.
He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected man. And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ For a while he refused, but afterward, he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.’ “ And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge says. And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will He delay long over them? I tell you He will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?”
Do you have the faith you need today to keep persevering in prayer to God for what is so heavy on your heart? Don’t lose hope! God isn’t finished working on your situation and even though you cannot see it, He is working on it! Pray for God’s will in your situation! If you could see what God sees, you would ask for what He knows is best. Don’t lose heart if things don’t seem to be turning out the way you hoped or if it seems to be taking longer than you feel it should! God has great plans for your life focus on Him and not the situation at hand! Some situations are allowed in our lives to teach us to persevere. As I was reading in James chapter 1 this morning where it says that we need to persevere through any trials that come our way because that is how we learn to trust Him more and rely on Him which is how we grow in our walk with Him. It also tells us that when we ask we are to ask with faith and trust in Him believing that He will come through and will do what is best! He can make something beautiful out of any disaster! He can use your story to bring Him glory and to draw others to Him if you will allow Him to work in your life! He sees ~ He cares and He wants to grow you into all He created you to be. Keep asking! Keep believing! Don’t buy satan’s lies that it isn’t going to happen ~ he’s a liar! Seek God’s face and His answers!
Don’t give up! Pray believing that God is still on His throne and He is working out the details and He will come through for you, He knows what is best! God can use this situation to show Himself mighty in your life! He loves you and the best is yet to come if you will just hold on to Him and His promises.
