Daily Devotions From Maranatha

A. S. K.

Matthew 7:7

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

There are people who believe that God is hiding things from them. They think that He doesn’t want them to know about His ways or about His will. I have found in Scripture and by experience that this is just not the case. In fact, I have found that the Lord only hides things so that we can find them. It is like we do with our children, we put surprises in places and tell them to look for them. It is not that we don’t want them to find them, it is that we love to watch their excitement as they hunt for the special things that we have for them. The truth is that actually we want them to find them more than they want to find them. God has given us a great provisional admonition in this scripture. He says:

Ask and it shall be given to you. That is pretty simple isn’t it? It doesn’t take a great theologian to figure that one out. You came into this world with your “asker” in place. Some of the very first things you did as a child were to ask for things. God says here simply, “ask.”

Seek and ye shall find. There are untold blessings that God has for us, His children. He says that all we have to do to get them is to seek after them. We don’t have to beg, whimper, cry or throw pity parties. We just have to desire look for His good things and he says that we will find them.

Knock and it shall be opened unto you. How about those mysteries of God that the Bible speaks of? If you are having trouble deciding what you are supposed to do, or which option you are to take, then do what this verse says. Knock on the door and He will open it up to you. He wants you to discover His perfect will and way for your life.

MY WORD CONFESSION: I have learned the secret, I ask, I seek and I knock, therefore, I have the things of God I desire.
