"And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."
Luke 11:9 (KJV)

Jesus used her as an example to shame the Jews who were full of unbelief regarding himself as God in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16 ).
Likewise in Luke 4:24-28, Jesus used the example of the widow of Zarephath in 1 Kings 17 and Naaman the Syrian in 2 Kings 5 to show that the prideful Jews who considered the Gentiles as dogs were hindered from the Kingdom by their own unbelief while the despised ones gained acceptance with God by their faith.
In Romans 11, Paul explains that though the Jews were wrong to reject Jesus Christ and demand his crucifixion, God turned their failure into salvation for the Gentiles so that he might have mercy upon all. And he is yet able to save Israel when the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Praise God. I have to be willing to stand for the rest of my life if that is what it takes and I am willing. God 's word will not return unto Him void Praise God !!!!

Also He works according to His will good pleasure, knowing the end from the beginning, what we desire may not be in accord with His plan nor His time frame for things to happen in our lives. All that being said, when you feel all hope is lost and every man 's hand is against you, I find it most helpful to turn to the book of Romans, chapter 8, it never fails to refresh my spirit. Hope these words have been of some encouragement. Stay strong in the Lord and may God richly bless you.
8/10/2014, 8:50am by "sandy": I have been asking over and over and over and it takes so long to receive like months and months and months will go by and sometime years and I 've been obedient. I have loved and lost and lost... and sometimes I 'm tired why must I keep waiting. is God mad at me
