Matthew 7:7,8 “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; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
“Ask, seek, knock”, these words are all about need. I ask because of my need. I seek because of my need. I knock because of my need. The very emptiness of my soul is characterized by a need to be given, found, and welcomed. It is not begging, cajoling, persuasion, or an effort to overcome reluctance. It is an acknowledgment of the location of the supply for my soul, my life, and my best. My hope is built on nothing less than God’s supply. So, I ask with confidence and humility. So, I seek with care and application. So, I knock with sincerity and persistence. And my needs are met. Praise the Lord oh my soul and all that is within me, Praise the Lord.
