  Matthew 7:7 (AMP)

Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.

There is no way around it, we have to ask. Whether it’s for a need or want {physically, emotionally, mentally} we can’t assume they, spouse, friend or anyone else knows. Even though God knows our thoughts and needs before we bring them to him he still tells us to ask. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of this method because asking for me means I’m vulnerable in some way and that’s no bueno! Our verse today says…ask…seek…knock. Clearly, there is a point we need to take away from this and it’s “don’t stop pursuing!” It’s easy to give up the first time we ask and nothing but to seek and then knock requires persistence {continuing beyond the usual, expected, or normal time : not stopping or going away}. I have found that if I speak up and make my request known my chances of getting what I’ve requested are higher. Don’t stop, shrink back, or go away today. Speak up. Make your request known. Put it out there. Be persistent and push!! I pray a spirit of boldness overtake us as we speak up, ask, seek and knock. God I pray you meet us right where we are. Meet every need. Give us the desires of our heart as we seek you. Give us courage to go knowing that we are not alone. In Jesus name…Amen!
