Jesus explains that we should keep praying and never give up in the Parable of the Persistent Widow recorded in Luke 18:1-8. I’m sure the judge is not in a good mood but is rather angry at the widow but she continues to go to the judge; asking to grant her justice against her adversary.
If the widow in the story can eventually get justice from a “no good” judge by being persistent in asking for him to take action, how much more will our loving Father take action on our needs if we are persistent in prayer?
Sometimes we may think there is no hope but over time with persistent prayer, God will make sure that what needs to happen in our life happens. Sometimes, we grow in character with persistence. Just remember that God’s love will keep flowing like a never ending stream.
The widow was in poverty and we may feel the same but we have available God’s riches in Christ Jesus (Philippines 4:19) so learn from the persistent widow who continued to go to the judge and plead for justice; keep praying and never give up. Persistence like a stream of water will eventually cut into rock and so it will also cut through the obstacles in our path.
