Luke 18:1 NIV
[1] Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up…….

Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
[11] For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

The widow in the parable Jesus told (Luke 18) had lots of reasons to give up seeking justice – the judge was a curmudgeonly old warhorse who wouldn’t be swayed by God or by people but…..she had a vision and that vision was justice and that is something God cares about. So she didn’t let lack of response or constant rebuff stop her and eventually the heart of the judge was moved to grant her what God cares about.
Ask God for a vision because he has a plan…and it is a good one.

Father, will you remind me today that you have a plan that I am a part of; and let me never give up!
