” “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7,8
This scripture brings comfort to us when we are hurting – grieving or in expectation for something. Our God is gracious to us – walking with us through many storms of life – cheering us on in times of triumph and holding us like a small child when we are in pain.
I am glad that I can turn to Him anytime I feel my heart is broken – or so full with joy I can’t contain it. He is my source. He is my reason to carry on.
I feel His love carrying me when I’m worn out from life – or weary from trying to make sense of things on my own. His peace covers me when I feel another storm threatening me. His strength sustains me when I feel weak and useless.
I find that there really IS an answer when I “knock” on the door with all my questions. Sometimes not right away – but silence is also an answer and I’ve learned to be content with that. I also find that when I ask – He is working behind the scenes to bring it about – not as soon as I would like that answer sometimes – but it does come eventually. You see, it says that everyone who asks – will receive an answer – whoever seeks – will find – whoever knocks – the door will be opened.
I am praying God’s blessing on you today – as you ask, seek and knock.
