“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
Jesus promises, “Seek, and you will find,” but in this current culture of hurry up and rush, we are often distracted by things that rob us of the seeking He desires. So much of that which has value is lost to the moment’s urgency. Note here in this verse there is a hint, perhaps even a great shout in our direction, announcing that God has so much more for us – an infinite amount of more.
A STOREHOUSE OF GOOD THINGS
Such generosity makes me wonder why are we resigned to having so little of what God wants to give? Why do we take such small strides in our walk with Him while subsisting on a meager diet of crumbs? Is it not because we fail to seek Him as we ought? Shouldn’t we take His invitation seriously when it’s He who has promised a storehouse of good things to those who ask? And why not knock, when it is the Lord, holding in His wealthy hand, all that my soul needs to be satisfied?
God stands behind His door, ready to open it to you – indeed, to all who will knock.
TO THOSE WHO SEEK
What will we find when we ask and knock? We discover an unlimited amount of what is needed for our journey; all things are made available to God’s children who seek. In every season or station in life, we must banish anything that lures us into a mediocre, lackluster, and complacent life and direct our efforts to the reckless hot pursuit of Christ by asking, and seeking, and knocking.
Awaiting His return,
