Luke 18:8 Will God Find Faith In You?

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.

Luke 18:8 Will You Display Faith?

I tell you, he will see that they will get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth? Luke 18:8

Scientists and engineers are always seeking ways for mankind to be able to do everything that they desire on their own. There is a common belief that man can do anything he sets his mind to do. There are no limits.

All of these people have great faith, but it is in themselves, their abilities and the things they have invented. It is a faith and belief that with enough time, money and effort anything is possible.

Jesus had just given a parable about being persistent in pursuing God’s help, having faith that God will do what is needed to be done. Then He asked if when He returns, if He will actually find any faith on the earth.

Faith is trusting God for what cannot be seen or what has not occurred yet. People have faith in things, other people and themselves every day.

Many claim to have faith in God, but do not really show it. They come up against a problem in life and bring it to God for a moment. As soon as God does not clear the problem immediately, they begin to seek ways to solve it themselves or with the help of others.

Seeking to do it by oneself so quickly is removing faith in God to answer in the best way. One no longer has true faith in God, but more in self and others.

Every believer must put complete faith in God for everything. Things must be laid on the line trusting God so much, that if He does not come through, the person or thing will fail.

Pursuing God for help must be the top priority, not self-help or help from others. This is faith in God.

Each day you will have opportunities to exercise your faith in God. There will be things you must bring to God and lay it at His feet to take care of.

You have a choice as to whether you will let God take care of your needs, or you will strive to do it all on your own without His help. This is a choice of whether you will have faith in God or in self.

When God looks at your life, does He find faith?

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will have faith in God’s abilities and love; that you will seek God first for all your needs; and that you will see God work in your life.
