Rejoice always? When my brothers and I were kids we used to explore rock piles that bordered the edges of the farm fields in the area. We looked at every pile as an adventure; who knew what might be at the bottom of it; perhaps treasures like hidden fossils and crystals.
Think about it. If you want the treasure, persistence is the key. How about God? Does He find our persistent prayers, for the same thing tedious or irritating? God doesn’t find our persistence in prayer tedious or irritating at all. He expects us to be persistent.
God’s Word tells us: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-17).”
Being compelled to keep going requires faith that there will be an end to the work and a reward at the end. If it’s all about faith, can there ever be a prayer that is too repetitious? Be compelling. Make your case with God. He’s waiting for that last rock to drop to see if you really believe in the reward that may be waiting for you.
“Heavenly Father, thank You for the privilege of prayer. Help me to be faithful in this gift daily. Please help me to rejoice in the privilege of prayer as well. May my prayers be full of faith and in accordance with Your will. May we rejoice always. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)www.thispassingday.com
