“Persistence Pays” – Luke 18:1-8 (The Parable of the Persistent Widow)
Pastor Bruce Lerum
Luke 18:3 “There was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’”
Praying hard is praying through. Keep circling.
Luke 18:5 “…because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’”
We don’t know why God does what He does.
Luke 18:7 “And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night?”
God sees our persistence, whether in excited anticipation or anxious desperation.
