Today’s Thought: “Ask, Seek, Knock”
“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. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” (Luke 9:9-10)
Ask: Asking is the starting point in all prayer. Asking is to declare our need to God. And in the ask there is also a statement of humility that we are dependent on God to meet our needs, which is why many people don’t pray, they hate to be dependent on God or upon anyone r.
Seek: To seek means we are putting effort into our search. Whenever we lose something, the first thing we do is look in all the obvious places. But if we fail to locate it at first glance, then we start the seeking process. We’ll dig through a drawer and even the garbage, that is, anywhere and everywhere.
Knock: This is an insistent and persistent asking and seeking. That’s what Jesus is saying as He uses the present imperative in the Greek language describing these three verbs, that is, we are continuing to ask, seek, and knock.
We need continue to ask, and we’ll receive. We need to continue to seek, and we’ll find. And we need to continue to knock on heaven’s door, it will be opened, and we’ll receive the fullness of what we ask and seek after.
