You Shall Receive

“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 he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. (Matthew 7:7, 8 NKJV)

This is Jesus talking here.

For many years I struggled with this verse. Some teach that because of this verse if we don't have what we want then it is our fault. Others seem to render it untrue by adding all kinds of conditions that trap us in the legalism of being righteous in our own power to qualify for this blessing.

But what I see here is a simple truth. Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find. When we open our hearts to the love of Jesus and cry out to the Father He always responds. He will show us the next step on the path toward the true desires of our hearts that are in line with His word.

We must only say yes to Him. Then we will look back at our prayer and find that not only was The Lord faithful to His promise, but He also gave us exceedingly more than what we asked for.

Have you said yes to His answer to your prayers today? What is the next step He put before you?
