King James Version (KJV)
18 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:
3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
In this text, we see that the women was persistent with seeking to get the King to avenge her. Her persistence got her the result she wanted. Her Faith stopped the King.
We too can go to the Lord, our King, with our petitions and have them answered. We can not just go once, but continually, until we hear from the Lord. Even the King stated in the above text;” And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily.”
We have the same faith that the widow had to stop the King. Everyone has been given a measure of faith. The question is will we exercise our faith? I am!
