Lessons Learned

“Then the Lord said, ‘Learn a lesson from this unjust judge. Even he rendered a just decision in the end. So don’t you think God will surely give justice to his chosen people who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?’” Luke 18:6-7 

When we walk through trials and difficulties of life with God, we learn to trust Him. We learn that His word is true, that He never abandons us, and that He carries us when the way becomes too difficult. Our fears diminish because we know without a shadow of a doubt that no matter what circumstance comes our way, we have God, and we are all-encompassed by His love.

The Parable of the Persistent Widow in Luke 18 tells the story of an unjust judge who does not care about the things of God, and a widow who daily and persistently demands justice in a dispute she has with her enemy.

Luke 18:4-5 tells us, “The judge ignored her for a while, but finally he said to himself, ‘I don’t fear God or care about people, but this woman is driving me crazy. I’m going to see that she gets justice, because she is wearing me out with her constant requests!’”

The squeaky wheel got the grease.

Prayer is a powerful gift. Our Heavenly Father has allowed us each the opportunity to commune and communicate with Him through prayer.

Have you temporarily forgotten how much God loves you and longs to answer your prayers?

May you be reminded today of the loving and perfect justice of God, and may you be persistent in your request for it.
