In Luke 18:1-8 we read of Jesus sharing a parable with us about a woman who sought justice from a bad judge. The judge didn’t help her at all. But she returned again and again pleading this judge for justice. She drove the judge to the point where he could no longer ignore her and gave her the justice she was after.
When Jesus completed this parable He explained that there were lessons for us to learn from this story about God the Father. He tells us that if a bad judge such as this one would help the persistence request then How much more will God meet the needs of those that love Him. We need to realize that God will hear and he will answer us when we are persistent in crying out to Him.
We all put good faces on when in front of others. But you and I both know that difficult times come to all of us, health issues may arise, financial problems may come, broken dreams happen, despair for unsaved loved and so many more trials throughout our lives. Life can be hard, very hard.
However, we need to remember that God loves us, He wants good for us and He knows what’s best for us. But He wants to hear from us, not just once but sometimes over and over again, sometimes for many years.
He doesn’t want us to give up, ever. (Luke 18:1-8)
