"Operative word here is "diligently". Be diligent and don't give up on something before He answers you!"
"Understanding Faith Compared to Presumption ... The tempter can never compel us to do evil. He cannot control minds unless they are yielded to his control. The will must consent, faith must let go its hold upon Christ, before Satan can exercise his power upon us. But every sinful desire we cherish affords him a foothold. Every point in which we fail of meeting the divine standard is an open door by which he can enter to tempt and destroy us. And every failure or defeat on our part gives occasion for him to reproach Christ. ... We should not present our petitions to God to prove whether He will fulfill His word, but because He will fulfill it; not to prove that He loves us, but because He loves us. “Without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6. ... But faith is in no sense allied to presumption. Only he who has true faith is secure against presumption. For presumption is Satan’s counterfeit of faith. Faith claims God’s promises, and brings forth fruit in obedience. Presumption also claims the promises, but uses them as Satan did, to excuse transgression. Faith would have led our first parents to trust the love of God, and to obey His commands. Presumption led them to transgress His law, believing that His great love would save them from the consequence of their sin. It is not faith that claims the favor of Heaven without complying with the conditions on which mercy is to be granted. Genuine faith has its foundation in the promises and provisions of the Scriptures."

"Addendum.....do you HONESTLY think that a nation that is #1 in pornography, crime, homosexuality, drug and alcohol addiction, sex outside of marriage, prisons, can last much longer!!!???

"Anytime in the Bible you read " the house of Israel " , that is the United States and England. The term Jew comes from one tribe, JUDAH. The supposed " lost tribes of Israel " which Jesus told his apostles to send the message of the coming Kingdom of GOD drifted into Europe, then Ireland, England, then onto America. The United States is going to be taken over by a German led EU. We have seen our greatest days. Prepare for the second coming of Christ, but first there will be the worst war in the history of mankind and we are rapidly approaching this event.
