I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth? Luke 18:8
People are quick to say that they agree with someone or something, but later back down on that statement. They lose faith in people and things very quickly. This is often due because of past let downs that hurt them greatly.
Having faith in someone will hold on, even when things don’t look good. One with faith, will not give up at all, regardless of how long it takes.
Jesus gave a parable about a women seeking justice from a judge who would not give it. He said that God will give justice to those who cry out to Him, but wonders if He will find any faith when He returns.
Saying that one has faith in God is an easy thing to do, but much more difficult for many to actually show. People will cry out to God for help once or twice, but when God does not immediately answer, they give up.
Every person who has given up, has lost the faith in God. Often they feel that God will not answer them at all or meet their need.
Each and every time a believer cries out to God in prayer for a need, God hears him. God may or may not choose to answer immediately. Regardless of whether God chooses not to answer, the person must continue to cry out to God for that need.
This continual crying out to God is a sign of faith. It is showing that one truly does believe God can meet that need and won’t give up until that need is met.
One must not be like many and give up, but to keep the faith in God. You may have a situation in your life that you need God to meet. You have prayed an prayed and God does not appear to want to answer you.
Don’t give up. Keep seeking God’s help. God may be testing to see how much you trust in Him and how badly you want His help. True faith will trust in God and continue to seek Him, waiting for His answer, no matter how long it takes.
Do not be like many and give up, but keep the faith in God. Allow God to find faith in you.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you have faith in God’s abilities; that you will have complete trust in God meeting all of your needs; and that you will not give up trusting God when He is silent.
