Be Encouraged but Do Not Faint

One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up. Luke 18:1(NLT)

I thank God we don’t have to press on without any encouragement. I believe we have seen some supernatural intervention in our midst in these last two days of Revival and even in this last month. I believe that more is to come as our Revival continues and God changes lives and hearts…even our own. I think we should rejoice in that with all that is within us but also recognize that to change our posture of persevering prayer would be a mistake. What God can do through persevering, importunate prayer has yet to be seen in it’s full scope. I remind myself again and again and again and again…this is not about me or about Life Church or even about two churches coming together as wonderful as it all is…but the Kingdom of God and where we stand in relation to God’s Eternal Purpose.

I have been encouraged and I admit I really needed it but I also know in my heart this encouragement is given because this is only the beginning and not the end to the call to press on to see that full scope. This call is not just my call. It is for all of us- everyone, everywhere that calls himself a believer. Be encouraged, but do not faint…your prayers have never been as important or as needed as they are every minute and right this very minute!!!!
