Asking, Seeking, Knocking

Jesus said in Matthew 7:7,

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

Keep on asking.

Keep on seeking.

Keep on knocking.

You will receive.

You will find.

You will have doors opened to you.

While asking, seeking, knocking seem like “action” words, the consequences wanted are dependent on someone answering the request and the door. Even seeking does not promise finding without the help of the One who leaves the manna.

So my job: ask, seek, knock. Persevere. Don’t give up on those three!

God’s job: answer, reveal, open doors.

Eventually, He does.
