DONT LOSE HEART
1 ALSO [Jesus] told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not to turn coward (faint, lose heart, and give up). He said, In a certain city there was a judge who neither reverenced and feared God nor respected or considered man. And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, Protect and defend and give me justice against my adversary. And for a time he would not; but later he said to himself, Though I have neither reverence or fear for God nor respect or consideration for man, Yet because this widow continues to bother me, I will defend and protect and avenge her, lest she give me intolerable annoyance and wear me out by her continual coming or at the last she come and rail on me or assault me or strangle me.
And will not [our just] God defend and protect and avenge His elect (His chosen ones), who CRY OUT TO HIM DAY AND NIGHT? Will He defer them and delay help on their behalf?
I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth?
WE MUST NOT LOSE HEART
WE MUST KEEP CRYING OUT UNTIL WE SEE RESULTS
GOD WILL ANSWER US AND TELL US THINGS WE DONT KNOW. GREAT THINGS!
‘ Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know. ’
For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
GOD HAS GREAT PLANS FOR US!
WE MUST CALL UPON HIM COME AND PRAY TO HIM
SEEK HIM WITH ALL OUR HEARTS!
Galatians 6:9 AMP
And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.
DONT GROW WEARY IN THE WAITING.
KEEP DOING RIGHT AND IN GOD’S PERFECT TIMING WE SHALL REAP IF......
WE DON’T LOSE OUR COURAGE AND GIVE UP.
GOD ANSWERS AT THE PROPER TIME AND EXALTS AT THE PROPER TIME.
1 Peter 5:6-7
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, 7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.
CAST ALL YOUR CARES ON HIM BECAUSE HE CARES FOR YOU PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-25
Rejoice always; 17 pray without ceasing; 18 in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 19 Do not quench the Spirit; 20 do not despise prophetic utterances. 21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; 22 abstain from every form of evil.
23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your SPIRIT and SOUL and BODY be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
SO AWESOME TO KNOW THAT GOD WILL BRING IT TO PASS.
DONT GROW WEARY! DONT LOSE HEART!
PRAY WITHOUT CEASING!
IF WE DONT QUIT WE'LL WIN!!!!!
