When faced with impossible odds and difficult situations we need to keep on praying.
We need to keep trusting and believing that God will come through for us even when our circumstances are
far from ideal. Even when things are going the opposite of what God has promised.
I was so encouraged as I read Luke chapter one. And it’s the story of John’s parents.
“But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard, and your wife Elizabeth will
bear a son, and you shall call his name John.”
We know Zechariah has been praying for a child because the angel was there because of his prayer;
“Do not be afraid Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard”
He kept praying and trusting God for a child in spite of the impossible circumstances he and Elizabeth were in;
“And they were both righteous before God, walking blamelessly in all the commandments and statutes of the Lord.
But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and both were advanced in years.”
Luke 1:6, 7
They were advanced in age and Elizabeth was barren but that didn’t stop them from trusting God for a child. That didn’t
stop Zechariah from praying. No matter how impossible it seemed, he kept praying, he kept trusting God.
As the years went by they didn’t stop believing. They did not give up.
And because they didn’t give up they received an answer to their prayers!
And that’s what I want to encourage you with.
No matter how impossible your situation seems, keep praying, keep trusting in the Lord. Don’t give up hope.
God will fulfill what He promised you.
Even though things are going wrong in your life and prayer doesn’t seem to be getting answered don’t stop.
Keep on believing that God will come through for you because He will.
And with that I have come to the end of the post.
Thank you for reading it and I would love to hear what your thoughts are on the topic.
And remember, no matter how impossible the odds seem, don’t give up praying, don’t give up trusting God.
Bless you friends
