“There was a judge in a certain city,” he said, “who neither feared God nor cared about people. A widow of that city came to him repeatedly, saying, ‘Give me justice in this dispute with my enemy.’ The judge ignored her for a while, but finally he said to himself, ‘I don’t fear God or care about people, but this woman is driving me crazy. I’m going to see that she gets justice, because she is wearing me out with her constant requests!’” [NLT] Luke 18:2-5
Jesus told us of a parable where He highlights “persisting in something” to ALWAYS have its dividends. The widow’s seriousness to see Justice in her situation prevailed even with the unjust judge. Why because she never gave up on the results she wanted. Even though Jesus uses this example to show us the significance of praying, He points up “persistence” in praying being the operative word. In seeing your goals fulfilled this year, are there elements you needed to persist on that you haven’t bothered to consider? Don’t you think it’s time you put your fears aside, and defy what may be holding you hostage in making progress towards your goals? #The widow saw her goal fulfilled because she persisted and never gave up. You too will see you goals fulfilled this year because you persisted to the very end!
