DAY 26: Ask, Seek, Knock!

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. - Matthew 7:7,8 

Today, you will ASK and RECEIVE, you will SEEK and FIND and you will KNOCK and the door will OPEN! Why? Because He said it would be so! 

SO MANY believers give up too easily and too quickly. In the Christian life, if we don’t quit, we’ll win! Another way to read this scripture is: Ask (and keep on asking), seek (and keep on seeking) and knock (and keep on knocking). After you have asked... SEEK! After you have sought... KNOCK! After you have knocked... ASK AGAIN! 

Write out on a piece of paper 5 things that you have prayed for that have not yet come to pass... You might have to dig deep as often we bury our disappointments. It could be physical healing, financial blessing or even a loved one to come to know Jesus. Write or list them in order of priority to you. 

Now, take 5 minutes and pray through the list, ASKING God to grant your requests. Ask Him for the things you are believing for, in detail, by name... BE SPECIFIC! 

Then, take 5 minutes to SEEK out the Scripture and find a corresponding verse to whatever you are believing for. You could look them up in a Bible program like this one. Or you could use Google, which is fantastic for such searches: “Healing Scriptures” , “Financial Blessing Scriptures” , etc. 

Lastly, take 5 minutes and KNOCK by praying the scripture, OUT LOUD to the Lord, claiming His Word on behalf of your situation! 

At the VERY LEAST, you faith will increase by doing this Scripture, but I would be surprised if some of you weren’t healed by doing this. 

Let us know in the comments!
