on the door of an unjust judge. Until he gave in and gave her justice.
How much more will my Father God, who loves me, give me when I ask?
How much more does he have waiting for me when I pray and never give up?
The parable of the Persistent Widow in Luke 18 changed my life. It’s the answer to the question, “What am I supposed to do?” when I’m stuck, when I’m frustrated. What am I supposed to do when all of the wrong answers are swirling around in my head?
Now, I know. When I’m in those situations, I remember the Persistent widow and it reminds me that God has all of the right answers.
I just need to ask. And keep asking. And keep asking.
I ask knowing he will answer. I ask knowing that he will guide me in the next step. I ask knowing that he has determined the right path for my life. I ask because I know he has chosen me and he has great plans for me.
As I persist in seeking God…
he always answers. Always. Because he loves me and only wants the best for me.
When I have something big going on – something scary – something overwhelming….I pray.
And I keep praying.
I have had some very memorable days in my life which started in despair and fear and confusion but ended in peace with a plan and a smile because God answered my 200+ prayers that day. He didn’t change the situation. He changed my thinking, my perspective, my goal. He reminded me that he is in control.
When I persist in turning to God for wisdom, direction and strength he gives me all that I need and much more.
Thank you, Abba Father.
