Luke 18:1 (KJV) And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.
For a very long time, Judith complained and murmured about the inconsistencies she noticed in her home Church. Her exposure to true apostolic teachings had opened her understanding so much that she picked up errors so easily. She became even more surprised when the same continued after she had left her local Church for another branch in the city. She eventually left that branch for another but the same continued. It was after attending the fifth Church that she began to think that the problem was with her, so she decided to commit herself to God in prayers and she got a quick response; two passages were given to her by the Holy Spirit:
The first was Philippians 2:14 (KJV), ‘‘do all things without murmurings and disputings’’ and the second is, Luke 18:1 (KJV) ‘‘and he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint’’.
Judith understood immediately that God had opened her eyes to those inconsistencies so that she would intercede for the Churches.
If God has called you to be an intercessor, he will often allow you to see faults and weaknesses in others and your natural response may be to complain, murmur or criticize such persons, but God’s reason for allowing you see such faults or weaknesses is so that you would intercede.
According to God’s standard, you are to be careful for nothing; but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God (Philippians 4:6 KJV).
Go into today knowing that your duty as a child of God is to pray and not to murmur or complain.
If you don’t like it, pray about it. Remember that men ought always to pray.
Prayer: Father, help me to always pray instead of complaining in Jesus’ name. Amen
