“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.” Matthew 7:7-8 (ESV)
When we know the love of God for us and His desire to bless us, it is motivation to pray more persistently. Too often we ask once then move on, even lamenting that praying didn’t work, but the truth is we stopped asking because of our disbelief in the very character and willingness of our Heavenly Father to answer. The test is not in the answer but in our asking.
Let’s pray today to be faithful to ask, seek, and knock for answered prayers that honor God.
