It is significant that Jesus compared His elect to a widow harassed by an enemy. The widow had legitimate reasons to quit, but instead, she prevailed. She refused to remove herself from her highest potential simply because of her lowly state. She made no apologies for her lack of finances, wisdom, or charisma. Giving herself no reason to fail, she boldly stated her case before the judge where she pleaded for and received what was hers: legal protection from her opponent.
BEING DESPERATE DEFINES YOUR AUTHORITY
How did a common widow gain such authority? We can imagine that there must have been a time when, under the relentless pressure of her adversary, she became desperate, and desperation worked to her advantage. Desperation is God’s mallet. It demolishes the stronghold of fear and shatters the chains of our excuses. When our desperation for God exceeds our fears, the kingdom of God advances. Your desperation for God provides the legal protection that the widow pleaded for. You are the widow who has now received all power and authority to defeat the enemy of God.
As we are relentless through intercession, we will see the justice of God released on our behalf into all the earth! As we persevere, let us keep praying and never settle for failure. For this is what the bride of Christ does. She stays on the wall of intercession moving in her authority and prays for justice!
