Persist

Luke 18:1 
One day Jesus told his disciples a story to illustrate their need for
constant prayer and to show them that they must never give up!

***

By God’s hand a wildflower can persist and come up in an infinitesimal crack in the concrete. We also by His hand, can come up from the depths of what seem like impossible circumstances and bloom through the concrete of the hardest times, if we persist in prayer and don’t give up!

Luke 11:8    I tell you, even though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will get up and give him as much as he needs.

From Netbible:   Lk 11:8
Persistence here refers to a combination of ideas, a boldness or audacity that persists over time. Some translate the term shamelessness or importunity. It’s a refusal to give up or let go.

Hebrews 10:35-37 (NLT)   So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised. For in just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay.

For it brings great reward.

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. –Heb 4:16

Patient endurance{Perseverance} is what is needed now.

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. –Heb 10:23

Do not give up or let go of any of the Lords promises 
In just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay
Persist and receive all that He has promised.

    Do not throw away your confident trust in the Lord Jesus-For it brings great reward. Patient endurance- #Perseverance is what is needed now. Hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering-for He who promised is FAITHFUL! Let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good works. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
    –Hebrews 10:35-37,23 -25
