God is looking for those who are in relationship with him for the Long haul, for life! You cannot really get much from God’s spirit if your engagement with Him is always one off or intermittent. If you pray now, and refuse to pray again for a long time or you fast during your church’s one month fasting, and you say, that’s it for the year. Or you pay tithes only when you feel like; if you don’t persist in the things of the spirit, then you’ll be shutting yourself out of God’s best for you.
Look, but then, look again. Moses noticed something strange. A burning bush, whose trees refused to burn. That caught his attention. But he didn’t stop there. He moved closer for a better look – He looked again. That was when God called him by name, twice, after the second look. Then he got the assignment that will set him apart for life and even make him a memorial, long after he has left.
Many of us take spiritual signs for granted. God is always trying to get your attention, through several occurences, and mysteries, but you gloss over them and do not probe into the spirit to know God’s mind. Bible says God speaks at all times and in several ways. It takes persistent expectation to pick his instructions everyday, through his manifold ways!
Persistence – spiritual persistence is key in your Christian journey. If makes you live above protocols, because you’ll be making progress, where others choose to dock. If you’ve Prayed, then pay attention, look, and look again, He’s saying Something, pray again, until something happens – Luke 18:5. Study the word, study again, continue (James 1:28), persist, until a revelation breaks, until your light comes. Receive the grace to persist in the spirit, in Jesus Name. Amen.
