Persistence - Up To Know Good on Friday

Up To Know Good on Friday

Wedding Rings

In the true-life love story of Johnny and June Carter Cash, John asked June to marry him numerous times. June consistently said no. She loved him, but wanted to wait for the right time. Finally, after months of his persistence, she accepted his proposal on stage in front of thousands of fans. They were married one week later. They continued to enjoy successful careers, had a son, and were married for thirty-five years!

Do Good - If you want a change in your life, be persistent with God. Commit yourself to praying regularly for what you want and need, knowing that God desires to bless you.

What if John had given up after June said no repeatedly? They may both have missed decades of a blessed loving marriage. God wants us to persist in asking Him for what we want as well. He loves us - are we bold enough to keep asking when He doesn’t say yes right away? Let’s not miss decades of joy simply because we gave up!

“yet because of the man’s persistence he will get up and give him as much as he needs. So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Luke 11:8b-9. Read what Jesus says about how to pray.

Jesus, I want all the Life You died to give me. I commit to praying consistently and boldly to You!

Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.


I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
