Luke 18:1 “Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart.” (NKJV)
Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).
We pray to God for many reasons and one of them is to ask Him for something. At times we won’t receive it or get an answer right away relating to timing.
The biggest lesson to learn from this verse is be persistent.
God sees our faith.
This doesn’t mean countless repetitions during a prayer session or hours and hours of prayer. It does mean keeping our requests known in front of God.
We know that if we ask Him anything according to His will, we will get what we ask for (1 John 5:14-15). This is the confidence we have in HIM.
Sometimes time eats away at that confidence and we must arrest the thoughts and emotions immediately because we also know that God’s Word always prevails.
It is one of the two things He can’t do, go against His Word. Therefore what is written is TRUTH.
We must remain confident and persistent and know………He will always answer us.
