How long is too long to be praying for your miracle? All over the world people are desperately in need of a miracle.
There was this woman whose husband had died and left her in debt, and she had no idea how she was going to pay her husband’s debts. She bought the matter before the courts and this certain presiding judge was an unfair judge who refused to listen to the widow’s case. Every time the matter was bought up the woman was turned away. She refused to become discouraged but kept going back to the judge because it was the only place she could get some form of justice. Finally, the judge to save his reputation and to prevent a public outcry ruled in her favor.
How long is too long to keep bringing your urgent prayers to God? God is not like the unfair judge. When God is all you have, God proves that He is all you need. Like the widow – all your help comes from God the righteous judge. Push until something happens.
There are some situations that only God can intervene and interrupt the plots that are working against you. The question now is, ‘Will God find faith in you?’ Sure, you get weary standing in faith and exhausted in the fight but through it all – be persistent and keep on knocking.
You may ask – ‘How long is too long to wait on God?’ The answer is quite simply – Until He answers.
God gives you His peace and that makes it easier to wait until He answers. The situation may look the same but His peace makes a great pillow. Everyone who trust in God will never be ashamed. The story always ends well. You never look like what you went through.
Be alert! Satan will do anything to make you either curse God or blame others for your pain. He entered Job’s wife heart by suggesting that he curse God and die when Heaven was silent. Jabez on the other hand had a moment reflecting on the meaning of his name and decided it was time to do something about it, so, he went to God and prayed about it – “O, that you would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that your hand would be with me, and that you would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain.” So, God granted him what he requested.
God hears from the moment your words leave your lips, but will He find faith in you during the waiting period? The widow didn’t lose heart going before the unfair judge everyday. Her persistence plus her courage moved the unfair judge to give her justice. God is not unjust, and He responds to the persistent prayer of the faithful.
Answers to prayers doesn’t happen by doing drive-thru prayers because we are in a hurry; or asking others to pray for you. It’s requires persistence prayer and courageously standing in faith alone with God. There are times when there’s no evidence of things working out any time soon but God must find us in the war room waiting for an intervention.
There’s no crisis with Christ – all it takes is for God the Righteous Judge to rule in your favor. So you must show up before the throne each and every day.
