“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” — Matt. 7:7-8 (ESV)
Ask, seek, knock. This is not a prescription for getting what we want from God, but for getting what He wants FOR us.
For those of you participating in our weekly Lenten fast, may these words from Jesus’ “Kingdom Manifesto” be of encouragement as we enter our second day of fasting. Ask for God’s guidance. Seek His will. Knock on the door of the Kingdom of the Heavens, and find it open wide.
Even as the specter of the cross looms nearer, there is joy and life abundant on the other side of the empy grave!
