Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.Matthew 7:7-8
Do you say I don’t understand God? Jesus tells us to seek him and we find him. So are you aggressively seeking God? If you knock he will open the door.
Seeking God is comparable to our everyday lives. Say you want to be a doctor, do you just become a medical expert instantly? No you seek the medical knowledge in books and thru others. The same is with God, if you want to really know him, seek the knowledge in The Bible already giving to us.
Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Matthew 7:9-11
God is our heavenly father and just as we parents want to give the best to our children, he wants to give the best to you. However just like with rebellious children we have free will. If you want to go your own way and not rely on God, he’s not going to stop you. But when you come back like the Prodigal Son he will receive you with open arms.
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Matthew 7:12
Do unto others as we would want done unto us, we probably heard this as kids but this is actually a commandment from God. You want people to be nice to you be nice to them, I know people are not always receptive but God knows your heart. Just as If you seek God he will seek you.
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
Notice God says is you search for me with all your heart, are you seeking God with all your heart or just giving it little or no effort? Find God and you will find Peace, Purpose, Strength and most importantly eternal life in Jesus Name Amen
