24TH EDITION WEEKLY DEVOTIONAL ENCOUNTER: “DO NOT GIVE UP, KEEP ON KNOCKING!”


Have
you been knocking at the door of heaven, through prayers, and it seems the door
is not opening? Then this edition of Weekly Devotional Encounter is
specifically for you…

“DO
NOT GIVE UP, KEEP ON KNOCKING!”
“…Keep Praying Until The Answer Comes.”
 [Matthew 13:22]
(Living Bible Parents Resource)
Further Reading: Luke 18:1-8

Have
you been knocking at the door of heaven, through prayers, and it seems the door
is not opening?
In
Luke 11:19, it is written “…Knock and it
shall be opened unto you”
. If the answer has not yet come, and you know
that your request is according to the will of God, then keep on knocking.
In
John 5:14-15, it is written, “And this is
the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His
will, He heareth us; and if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know
that we have received what we desired of Him”
.
Verse
1 of today’s reading is rendered thus in the New Living Bible Parents Resource,
“One day Jesus told the disciples a story
to illustrate their need for constant prayer, and to show them that – they must
keep praying until the answer comes”
.
Do
not therefore relent in prayers concerning that thing you are requesting from
God.
Pray
that you will always persevere in prayer until you receive the answer to your
request.
KEEP
ON KNOCKING!
[The above Devotional was taken from the Daily
Devotional of Daily Care from on High]
TODAY’S REFLECTION
I
welcome you in a special way to this edition of WeeklyDevotional Encounter. This may be your first time; if it is so, then
bear in mind that you still have the privilege to access other editions of this
weekly online program by CLICKING HERE
I
must be honest with you, there are times when I would be asking God to help me
in doing a task or to help me in tackling some problems, and it seems my
request isn’t coming sooner.
In
such moments I do feel bad and discouraged; I would be lamenting and would be
very annoyed and full of sadness.
In
such moments, I would be kind of thinking why it is taking God a whole lot of
time to hear me or to come to my aid. I would be like “Is there really God
again”
. Frustration can make you to utter unnecessary words.
But
do you know what? Whenever I calm myself down, then patiently praying with
humility, and be waiting on God to come and help me, everything will go as I
desired.
From
today’s reading, we are meant to understand that we knock at the door of heaven
through prayers, and that though it’s been long we have been knocking; we
should not give up knocking as long as we know that our reasons for knocking
are according to the will of God.
I
don’t know what is that reason why you have been knocking on the door of heaven
through prayers; has it been long you have been knocking? Please, do not give up;
keep on knocking for the door shall be opened unto you just as Christ made us
to understand.
Another
important thing I want to let you know today is that you should make sure that
what you are requesting from God is something that is according to His will.
Anything
according to the will of God should be something that does not go against any
of His precepts. God cannot answer you a prayer if what you are praying for is
not in accordance with His will.
I
have knocked on the door of heavens many times in the past, and the door was
been opened unto me lots of time. I am also sure that the door of heavens has
also been opened unto you when you did knock.
You
should not give up praying even if it seems that your heart desires are not
coming to pass. Persevere, and keep on knocking for the true God is not deaf to
hear your knocks.
The
widow used in the reading for this edition of the WeeklyDevotional Encounter did not give up. She did not pay money to the
Judge; she was only a poor widow, but her perseverance got her what she was
asking for.
God
is going to hear your knocks on His door; keep knocking, don’t relent in your
prayers. There are lots of things I am requesting God to do for me at the
moment; I am not going to use because He has not answered me or granted my
requests to become discouraged and to give up.
If
a Judge who was human and has limited powers can hearken to the knocks on his
door by the poor widow; then the God Almighty won’t fail to hear our own knocks
and open the door unto us.
Let
us not forget that the Judge agreed to grant the poor widow her request so that
he (the Judge) would have rest and be free of the widow’s persistent
disturbance.
Also,
the judge was able to help the widow because he has the capability of doing so;
and do not forget that the widow also knew that the Judge was in a better position
to help her; hence she kept going to knock on her door.

I
need you to try and review your aim(s) for knocking on the doors of heaven; if
they are not according to God’s will, I admonish you to relent because if you
continue, the door can never be opened unto you.
I
declare and decree that your knocks on the door of heaven shall successfully lead
to the opening of many doors of blessings, favour, divine connection,
upliftment, success, among others, unto your life.
Keep
knocking, persevere and your request shall be granted in due time.
