Rising Joy, by Vicki Matheny
And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unrighteous judge says! Won’t God give justice to his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he delay long to help them? I tell you, he will give them justice speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” Luke 18.6-8
God loves us and wants what is best for us. This does not always align with what we may think is best.
We need to be like our Father in heaven. He causes the sun to rise for both the evil and the good. He sends the rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. Jesus instructed us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us, Matthew 5.44-45.
Jesus taught the importance of asking for the things that we want and need through prayer to God. God will grant our requests as long as they are in accord with his word, Matthew 7.8. God gives good gifts to those who ask him!
However, that is the question at hand. Do we ask? Do we ask with the right motive? Or do we get so busy with our daily schedules and routines that we forget to talk to God? Do we cry out to him day and night? Will God find faith on the earth when Jesus returns to claim his church?
