Good morning people who are persistent about the right things
Ephesians 1:17 (NIV) I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better.
Persistence is sometimes very good - when it is for the right thing!
In this verse Paul persistently prays for the Church in Ephesus that they might know God better. This is not because they don't know Him, but because there is always more to discover about Who God is; there are always deeper levels of revelation and amazement!
Sometimes people can get annoying when they keep on asking for something that you have said NO to or that you have declined to give. But this is not how God is when people wholeheartedly seek to know Him more and more. In fact, God loves to respond to such hunger!
"Are you persistent about the right things? Are you persistent in your pursuit of God and deeper knowledge of Him?"
