The Jesus Series- Ask and it will be given.

Matthew 7:7 is one of the most popular verses in the Bible, even non-Christians quote it.

“Ask and it shall be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”.

Easy peasy right? Not quite. Certain times it can be hard to verbalize our needs, to ask for the things that make our hearts flutter. I’m not just talking about prayer, even asking loved ones for favours can be hard.

Seeking and knocking involve leaving our comfort zones to get what we want. With dry mouths and rapidly beating hearts, we roam the earth in search of our heart’s desires. It’s easy to fold up our dreams and keep them in a corner of our minds, never to see the sun.

However to paraphrase the wise words of my boo Jesus- keep pushing until you get your answers/dreams. Don’t stop asking the right questions, doesn’t even matter if it’s the right one, if you ask enough questions the right ones will find their way in.

Never stop seeking and knocking, the answer could just be at the next door.
