Ask

TODAY’S VERSE
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
Matthew 7:7 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What are you asking God for and haven’t received yet? What have you been seeking and haven’t found yet. How long have you been knocking and no one has answered the door? Frankly, I have found today’s verse to be one of the most challenging in the Bible. Many times in my life I have come against a seemingly brick wall and have found myself asking God over and over again. I have tirelessly sought for an answer and have incessantly knocked on the very doors of heaven. Or so it seemed. In truth, I know very little about travailing with God. I don’t know what it is like to spend hours on end, prostate before Him, asking for His mercy and favor in a situation. Even still, the real truth about answered prayer is found in what Jesus said next. He said, “Everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” In the original language it meant, “Ask and keep asking, seek and keep on seeking, knock and keep on knocking.” So today, what are you asking for? What are you seeking? Take comfort in these final words of Jesus and then pray and do not give up. “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for my discouragement. Help me not to give up. Thank You that you care for me and do answer prayers. I comitt myself to You. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
