Walk Not By Sight

1 And He told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart. He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected man. And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.’” And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge says. And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” ~ Luke 18:1-8

It can become wearing to pray about a specific situation over and over again, year in and year out, without sewing even a sign of your prayers being answered. But the LORD promises that if we continue to be faithful, He will move on our behalf at just the right time. We have to remember that God isn’t slow to fulfill His promises as we count slowness, but He fulfills them at just the right time. So, we can be sure that if we continue to stay faithful in prayer, we will get our answer, even if it is many years later.

It’s clear in the verses above that if we are persistent, the LORD will hear our cry and answer our prayers. Even though it feels like we live in a hopeless world, this isn’t to lose faith. This is the time to press in and fight even harder for our God-given dreams and calls. This is the time to show God we are faithful in the good and in the bad because we understand that there is nothing without Him.

Always remember that God is faithful, and our job is to trust Him at all costs. Even when we don’t see Him moving, we have to have faith and believe that He is. Peace. Love. Go Forth and Walk Not By Sight.
