Persistence is key. Jesus is persistent in loving you. Be persistent in your faith with Him.
“Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His presence continually!” 1 Chronicles 16:11
Jesus is our strength.
If you want intimate love with Jesus, seek Him persistently. Rely on the love He has for you. He fills our hearts so we can pour out our love on Him. He is the initiator of love. Our faith moves His heart. Jesus wants to find persistence in our faith.
In Luke 18, Jesus speaks about persistence and the breakthrough that comes from going to Him over people.
He says, “And will not God give justice to His elect, who cry to him day and night? Will He delay long over them? I tell you, He will give justice to them speedily.“ Luke 18:7-8
Who are you going to for breakthrough?
God wants you to come to Him first.
Jesus loves to answer you. Jesus loves to adore you. Be loved and know Jesus gave everything to demonstrate His persistent love for you.
Jesus died on the cross to show you He was persistent in loving you.
Nothing can ever remove you from His love since you are permanently His beloved when you give your heart to Jesus.
“In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39
If the unrighteous judge in Luke 18 gives justice to the widow because of her persistence, how much more will your holy God give you justice because of your persistence with Him!
Be persistent with Jesus. Go to Him. Seek Him. He is a persistent God. He loves you forever. 💕
