Perseverance or insanity?

“And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” Hebrews 12:1b (NLT)

It is said that the definition of insanity is continually doing the same thing expecting a different result! In most realms that is true. But not in the area of prayer and faith!!! The spiritual principle of reaping what you sow requires patience, endurance and perseverance. Jesus said that we were to ask and keep asking, seek and keep seeking and while you’re at it, don’t stop knocking (Matthew 7:7-8). Jesus told His disciples to pray and not give up, but to cry out day and night until God answers (Luke 18:1-8). Regarding our prayers, we are to keep pressing into God, even when everything seems to be going the other direction. That is called faith and not walking by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7)! I literally prayed every day for 25 years for the salvation of my father before he finally surrendered his life to Jesus! And I believe every one of those days mattered! Whatever God has put on your heart by faith, keep asking, seeking and knocking. If He gave you that assignment then you are responsible to keep doing it until He either answers it, or releases you from it. Please don’t give up, the answer could be one day away!!!

And while you’re at it, please keep praying for our nation! A great change is coming. Yes, a terrible crime has been committed and many think they will get away with it. But God is working, even though the lying media makes it sound like darkness is winning. With evil EO’s being signed and wicked bills being passed, it can feel overwhelming. The reality, something is coming. PLEASE believe and keep asking God to do what only He can do in our nation! Cry out like the widow in Luke 18 whom Jesus said that if even the unjust judge would answer her, how much more the Just One in heaven hears and answers us! Cry out that every wicked scheme of the enemy would be exposed and his works/people deposed. Thank Him for what He is doing right now. Recommit to Him that you will keep praying until the answer comes! By the way, the world may call you insane, but probably called Noah the same thing!!!
