Ask seek and Knock
Matthew 7:7-8 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. #Bible
We who have been born again, who have repented and declared Jesus our Lord, have been welcomed into the family of God, and God is now our Father in Heaven.
This is to ask, first of all for forgiveness of our sins, which God our Father does completely. That means we don’t become a judge going around picking our brothers and sisters in the Lord apart for every inconsistency we can find.
It means we look to our Father God for everything we need, He is our source for everything. We no longer look to this world, even though God provides some of what we need from this world.
We seek what we need, first of all our salvation, then anything else we need from God our Father. Such as finding that narrow path that leads to eternity with Jesus our Lord, avoiding that broad path that leads to destruction. Anything, our wants, or desires, that cause us to seek, we go to God our Father who gives us good things.
If we come to a closed door, or a roadblock, or something that is in our way, we knock on the door to the Throne Room of Heaven where we have unreserved access, and can enter in without fear or hesitation to God our Father sitting on His Throne.
The point is we Christians must turn to our Father God through Jesus our Lord for everything, we must act, we must pray.
Prayer is our vehicle by which we accomplish everything we do in this world, on our way to Heaven.
