“Then Jesus told His disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up” Luke 18: 1 NIV
This little recognized verse is an all time favorite and resides on my prayer list to remind me that there is always HOPE! The Scripture is full of verses on hope that touch our hearts and encourage us through our faith journeys. Here is a simple, introductory sentence used by Dr Luke when Jesus taught the disciples about the Persistent Widow. It transformed my prayer life and my life outlook… “always pray and not give up”… that means HOPE!
Dear friends, as believers we have an eternal hope that no matter what, God has us in His hands. I take so much comfort in knowing that regardless of the curve balls in life, God loves me and knows what I need and I don’t have to worry about the future. Whatever happens, as the old song says, “My hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus’ blood and righteousness”.
Keep praying dear friends, knowing that regardless of what you face, God knows, He loves you and all you have to do is keep trusting Him. Build that trust in Him through reading the Word and as Paul says, “pray without ceasing”. He has been faithful to me over and over and I know He will be faithful to you
By the way, may I encourage you to read Luke 18… good stuff! 😊
