Sometimes we simply give up when things do not immediately turn out the way we think they should. By example, George Mueller, who, completely by faith ran several orphanages that served thousands of children, had two friends for whom he prayed for fifty years before they came to the Lord.
Faith perseveres in the face of all obstacles. It knows the answer is real before it is seen. Jesus healed the daughter of this woman who was a foreigner rather than a Jew because she would not stop until she received her miracle. God is looking for people who are dedicated and committed to seeking His face.
