“Ask, and it will be given to you;seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7
By: Michelle Jeremie
Have you ever gone miniature golfing? The course is decorated with larger than life statues of animals, replicas of famous land marks and contraptions that turn, rotate and spin. As the golfer, you have to keep focused on the goal: to get the golf ball into the hole. If you focus on the bigness of the statues and replicas, you will become distracted, and can I say, a little frustrated.
That’s sometimes how we live. We have a desire in our heart, a dream burning in our bones, a word from God ringing in our ears, but we are not yet seeing its fulfilment in our lives, and we end up a little frustrated.
Yes, it’s true that sometimes the timing is not right, or our motives are selfish, but there are times when God is saying to your spirit “It’s time! You’re ready! Go for it!” and you just don’t know what to do!
Today is your day! This word has come to you! The Lord says, “ASK, SEEK, KNOCK!” Don’t focus on the bigness of the things between you and the goal: to become who God has created you to be. Ask for His will to be done in your life, seek after it, and knock at every door He leads you to. God delights to bless His children who trust and obey Him! He has made you a promise to reward your faith in Him and He will keep it! God’s word is good.
