The Parable of the Widow and the Judge.
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to teach them that they should always pray and never become discouraged.
2 “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected people. 3 And there was a widow in that same town who kept coming to him and pleading for her rights, saying, ‘Help me against my opponent!’
4 For a long time the judge refused to act, but at last he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or respect people,
5 yet because of all the trouble this widow is giving me, I will see to it that she gets her rights. If I don’t, she will keep on coming and finally wear me out!’”
6 And the Lord continued, “Listen to what that corrupt judge said.
7 Now, will God not judge in favor of his own people who cry to him day and night for help? Will he be slow to help them?
8 I tell you, he will judge in their favor and do it quickly. But will the Son of Man find faith on earth when he comes?”
“And will not God bring about justice for His own elect who cry day and night to Him, though He bears long with them?”
Deut. 32:35 states: “It is mine to avenge, I will repay, in due time, their footsteps; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them.”
Beloved, what this simply means is that in any area of your life that you are being persecuted, do your best to present it to God who will fight your cause.
Jesus’ lesson is that if an unrighteous and unconcerned judge would act upon the persistent request of a pleading widow, then certainly the pleas of the righteous to a concerned God would bring justice to those who persecute His children. (Heb. 10:37; 2 Peter 3:8-9; Rev. 6:10).
Therefore, Christians must believe that God will readily answer their prayers. However, in case of any delay, they must ask until their joy is full. Jesus also encourages Christians to continually pray for deliverance throughout their time of persecution. God will bring down judgment on those who persecute His children.
Romans 12:19, states: “Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: it is mine to avenge; I will repay; says the Lord.”
Note that God’s heart is to forgive. When we seek forgiveness with a repentant heart, He grants it. However, God asks us to forgive others their sins. His love in us gives us the ability to pardon others and have compassion on them.
The enemy means to destroy you and your future, but God’s redemptive power is released if you allow Him to fight the battle for you. With God’s help, you can suppress the boiling anger in you and forgive the unforgivable.
Dear Lord, grant me Your divine protection against my enemy and give me victory on all sides in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Thank You Jesus.
