DAY 117 OF 365: WALKING THROUGH THE WORD DEVOTIONAL

Your Father in heaven is as interested in answering every cry you make everyday as it is His pleasure to see you have what He wants to give…

Title: KEEP PRAYING ABOUT IT

…men always ought to pray and not lose heart… and shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?

Luke 18:1, 7-8

Have you ever had a little child pester you over buying something before? Just by the way they’ll use the words “Please, please, pleeeeaaasssse…“, you can’t help but answer them. I remember disturbing my dad, as a little boy, to get me a particular backpack. He had gotten a new one for my sister and I just had to get my own backpack too. I kept tugging at him and crying over and over. The next day, my dad returned home with my new backpack simply to shush me.

Do you know that your Father in heaven is as interested in answering every cry you make everyday as it is His pleasure to see you have what He wants to give? You see, not everything we ask sometimes is God’s will, but, as we learn through the Word to ask what will give Him pleasure, He is bound to answer us accordingly. I John 5:14 tells us, “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

Remember He says in Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Your Father is determined to see your needs met and your joy full, but in the place of prayer, you mustn’t relent or give up. You must be resolved like the woman in Matthew 18 to keep knocking until you’re answered.

Jesus also promises that the Father will answer all who cry to Him day and night even if it seems like He delays. So, if you’ve been asking for long, God hasn’t abandoned you, He will answer you speedily. Don’t lose faith. In the last part, Jesus completed it for us. The continuing key is praying in faith. It is this faith that He looks for upon the heart. Not your words but your faith. Not your fasting but your faith.

As God looks upon the earth today seeking whose prayers to answer and whose needs to meet, will He find your faith (your expectation) high or will He find you sighing in despair and quitting? Keep praying about that need. In faith, keep reminding God of His promises to you through Thanksgiving. Thank Him for His ability to meet your needs.

It is your season to be recognised by God. As you pick up your faith tool. Keep knocking. Keep asking. Keep seeking. Don’t stop. Your miracle is about to break forth, in the name of Jesus, amen.

God bless you
