Day 17- Luke

Read Luke 17-18:1-8

Spotlighted Scripture:  Read Luke 18:1-8.

Persistent, patient prayer- Jesus encourages the disciples to keep asking and never give up.  Both these words are not fun to practice. 

Webster defines these words as:
  • persistent:  continuing firmly or obstinately in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.
  • patient:  bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint; steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity  
God wants us to keep asking but patiently wait for the answer or relief.  He is interested in growing our faith, not spoiling us by giving us all our wants.  I know it can get tiring, praying for the same thing over & over but Jesus knew we would need the encouraging words found in the parable of the persistent widow. 

Psalm 34:17 "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles"

Be encouraged today and know that God is never late & His Plan will always be the best!
