Read Luke 11:8-9
Jesus shares the importance of persistence. This verse hit me today. I think I shy away from this concept...persistently seeking and asking God. I mean He knows everything right? It always seemed a little childish to keep asking or seeking God for specific things...maybe that is the point.
Jesus gives an example of persistence, and then he implies we do the same. Maybe persistence is so critical because it leads to greater expectation. Maybe that is why I feared being persistent because I expected so little.
