Persistence

Hello, everyone.  It's a great morning for a new post, don't you think?

Last night was Pizza Movie Night at my house.  The youth group came to our house and we watched a movie and ate pizza (duh!).  The movie we watched was Wall-E.  In case you don't know, Wall-E is about two robots who basically just go through a lot of trouble to get a plant to the captain of a space cruise ship - that's the "directive."

Well as in all our youth events, the youth staff always bring something from God's word.  When it's Pizza Movie Night, they try to relate it somewhat to the movie we watch.  Last night, Chris encouraged us on diligence and persistence.  He related the persistence of the robots in Wall-E to the parable of the woman who was persistent with the unrighteous judge.  In the parable, the woman comes to this judge who didn't really care at all, but because of her diligence the judge gave in and helped her.

And our Father in heaven is not like that judge.  He is righteous, and He cares for you greatly.  So we as Christians not only are able to, but are commanded to come before Him in prayer and cast our burdens on Him.  So this morning I encourage you as Chris encouraged the youth last night to be persistent in prayer.  Just because the Lord hasn't answered doesn't mean He won't answer - pray, and it will be all in His good timing.

On a sidenote, be praying for Lamb's Fair today, for the number of children who come, the souls of the children who are there, and that it would glorify God.

For God's Glory!

Great reminder. Just because you don't get a 'that minute' responce doesn't mean God doesn't care. In fact, it shows that His timing is far greater than ours. As one other note, what's the Lamb's Fair? I'll be praying for the kids, but I'd be interested in knowing more!

Lamb's fair is a little thing we do for our church. We invite kids over and they run around like crazy playing games and stuff. And we also have an hour of 'teaching time' for the kids, so they get to hear the gospel.

I remeber last year I made cotton candy with mrs. W the whole day :)

I like that as well. Even though we don't get a response just then, it doesn't mean God hasn't heard our prayers and answered it, because He always hears His children's prayers and loves that fellowship with us.

God bless!
