|When Moses went to PharaohDemanding Israel’s release
Pharaoh didn’t surrender
But their work increased.
Sometimes things will get worse
Before getting better
Sometimes it seems as if we’re cursed
But it’s only temporal fetter.
Moses was persistent,
Going back again and again as commanded
It was not an easy feat
But that was how God planned it.
Sometimes we can’t see what God is doing
What’s happened doesn’t make sense
Sometimes we’re just to trust,
To keep going and not relent.
At last the Israelites were released,
Even handed gold and silver,
The very items used to make
The temple of their deliverer.
|Sometimes we must press on,Continue praying for what we want
Sometimes we must not give up
But see our breakthrough dawn.
They followed God and built His temple
Though there were many ups and downs
Their story’s not done, still continues today
But what lessons can be found!
Sometimes we must simply follow Jesus
And be like little children
Sometimes we must not give way to fear
But keep after Him as pilgrims.
The Parable of the Persistent Widow (Luke 18)
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 2 He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. 3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’
4 “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, 5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’”
