BE PERSISTENT IN PRAYER
Jesus taught us to be persistent in prayer. We often read the words of Jesus in the gospels and then we do not take it seriously, we just don't do what He said and then we do not receive anything. It is the doers of the Word that are rewarded. Jesus commanded us to be persistent when we pray. I read from Luke 11:5-13.
5 Then He said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend, and goes to him at midnight and says to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves; 6for a friend of mine has come to me from a journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; 7and from inside he answers and says, ‘Do not bother me; the door has already been shut and my children and I are in bed; I cannot get up and give you anything.’ 8“I tell you, even though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will get up and give him as much as he needs.
9“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10“For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened. 11“Now suppose one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he? 12“Or if he is asked for an egg, he will not give him a scorpion, will he? 13“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to . He your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”
So many Christians, so many believers have not received the baptism in the Holy Spirit. They say it is not for everyone, they are just not persistent. When we go to the Lord in prayer We must be persistent. We must keep on knocking. He takes pleasure in it that we trust Him and keep on knocking. Obey Jesus. Be persistent in prayer.
Ask and keep on asking and we will receive.
That is why so many do not believe that Jesus will never leave them or never forsake them, even though He said so, so many times. They say that :"God has left me. Jesus will not take me back'" That is a lie from satan. You must believe what Jesus said. Jesus said:"Lo I am with you always. I will never leave you, I will never forsake you." Jesus loves you. He cares for you. He will not change. He does not change. He's not a man. Believe what He said and do what He tells you to do. Trust Him. Obey Him and you will receive. Be persistent in your walk with Jesus. Be persistent in our prayer life. and we will receive. Ask and we will receive. Knock and it will be opened unto us.
Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and for ever, and He never changes, May Jesus bless you.
