I am not going to go into the whole parable right now, I just love how Jesus starts with the point. I think the point is enough to go on. If you hang around me or Venue Church long enough, this verse will get brought up.
“Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.” ~ Luke 18:1
Think about that. No matter the situation, no matter the mountain, no matter how qualified you feel, no matter how resourced you are, you are to never stop praying and never give up. I love this verse because the first temptation we have when things go south is to do what? Yep. Two things: Stop praying and give up! I’m keeping it short today.
What have you stopped praying about? What have you said, “It’s never gonna happen”, “It’s not worth it”, “It’s too hopeless” or “It’s too big” about? Nothing is too big, or too hopeless, or too small or too late!! Always pray, never give up.
Don’t give up on your marriage or your son or daughter. Don’t give up on getting health in your body or financial situation. Don’t give up on your parents or your friend. Don’t give up on your calling or your dreams. You will only ever regret giving up and stop talking to God about the things that matter to you. Jesus said these simple profound word that are packed with enough to live our lives by. Always pray, don’t give up!!
At the tail end of this fast. Keep focused, Don’t give up! Don’t stop praying:)
