Always Pray and Never give up!

Good day to everyone!  I was led to this message for everyone to reflect on and wanted to share with you. 

This parable is a lesson in faith by reminding us that persistent prayer has a direct correlation with our faith. This widow would not take no for an answer. She was persistent in her petition and eventually she was given her request. So too must we learn to be persistent in prayer, especially when we know what the will of the Lord is in the manner. Thus, the Lord will give us our petition, yet HE will often wait a long time before HE gives it to us in order to see how long we will be persistent in our prayers. Have a wonderful day as you remain persistent in your prayers. Love you all. 

 

“One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show them they should always pray and never give up.” Luke 18:1

 

In Romans, we are told that faith comes by hearing an d hearing by the word of God. When we understand what God would have us to do, then we must do it. Just because the results are not what you desire them to be, this does not give you the grounds to reject what you have been told by the Lord to do. When things are not going according to plan, this is the time that you need to fall on your knees and be persistent in prayer.

 

When was the last time that you really were persistent in prayer before God? Were you praying day and night, waiting on God to give you the desires of your heart? There are some petitions that the Lord will answer immediately. However, while quick answers to prayer will increase your faith, there are times were God desires that you be persistent in pray for a long period of time so that your trust and reliance in God will be firmly placed.

 

Persistent prayer needs to be part of your every day life. Just because you do not see God answer immediately, this does not mean that your prayer is not being heard or that God does not intend to answer it. It is important that one engrosses themselves in the word of God so as to ensure that they know what the will of God. When one knows the will of God, then they need to be prepared to be persistent in prayer. They must be willing to hold fast onto the promises that the Lord has given them. Satan will bring many a storm to try to get the believer to doubt. Satan desires to cause you to grow faint in your request at prayer. God knows just how far HE can stretch you. God desires to grow your faith, as such, do not faint, do not grow weary, do not allow Satan to throw doubt into your path. Instead, be persistent in prayer and watch God answer your petition as you are persistent in prayer.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
