Jesus spoke a parable about a judge who did not fear God nor care about people. A widow repeatedly came to him, asking for help against her enemy. The judge ignored her for a while, but her persistence wore him down.
“This woman is driving me crazy. So, I’m going to see she gets justice because she is wearing me out with her constant requests,” he said.
Jesus declared that we need to learn a lesson from this unjust judge because even he rendered a just decision in the end. The Lord said:
“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 18:7-8)
My prayer today:
Lord, help American believers to realize that it is impossible to please You without faith, knowing that You not only exist but that You reward those who diligently seek You. (Based on Hebrews 11:6)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
