The Doorpost: Do we cry out to God enough?

Ray King  ·  Sep 24, 2018

And will not God give justice to His elect, who cry to Him day and night? Will He delay long over them? I tell you, He will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?

Luke 18:7-8

Take some time to read and meditate on the first eight verses of Luke 18

How much of the difficulty and injustice we suffer in life is because we do not continue to cry out to God day and night? Too often we may pray about something a few times, and then give up. Sometimes we don’t pray at all.

Jesus tells us not to give up praying. He says God will give us justice speedily, if we continue to pray. "Speedily" obviously does not mean "instantly," or we wouldn’t need to keep praying. But He does say God will act speedily, if we do not give up. When it is the right time, He will answer speedily. 

If we have faith, we will continue to cry out to God day and night, believing that He will answer. But Jesus asks, “Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?”    

What answer will we provide to that question?
