DO NOT CEASE FROM PRAYING
1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. 6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Brothers, Jesus says here that we ought always to pray without ceasing. We are to not faint. Knowing that our Lord will always here our prayers.
God will avenge you for you are his elect. We who have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior will always be avenged for our troubles.
Jesus then asks this question. When the Son of man comes, will he find faith ton the earth?
Will mans faith sustain him or will he faint from waiting on the Lords appearing.
Brothers, we all know a brother in Christ who is not watching for His soon appearing. They are caught up in the day to day trials in their lives. It is easy to loose your focus on Jesus if you are watching and listening to the constant lies coming from this world.
The world will always mix a little truth with their lies. But, it is up to us to examine all things to see GOD's TRUTH, not man's distorted version of truth.
Brothers, the judge that Jesus spoke of here had no fear of God, nor did he have any regard for man. The judge did make the decision to avenge the widow, but only after her repeatedly coming before him, and troubling him.
Is not this common in this day that seeking justice on this earth requires much complaining to the powers that be, and even then you may never find any form of justice.
We are to never cease from praying, and not faint for our heavenly Father is our avenger. He is our just God, and we are told here that unlike man, God will never fail us.
Do not faint my friends, and do not stop praying for your needs in this life. It is our God who will answer our prayers.
Jesus asked, if when He returns, will he find faith on earth. It is up to you to keep your faith brothers. Do not faint!
God bless you my brothers. Keep praying, and do not faint.
