Rewind Wednesday: Ask, Seek, Knock

Standard

Note: My wife and I made a rather difficult decision last night. One of those “burn the ships” sort of decisions. I thought this post from the past was appropriate as its truth is timeless.

This morning I read in Matthew 7. Something that really stuck out to me was in verses 7-8:

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

Ask = Prayer

Seek = Actually Look/ Gather Information

Knock = Test/ Forward Motion

One thought on “Rewind Wednesday: Ask, Seek, Knock

  1. Yes that is a very popular New Testament passage. The way I learned about this verse was:

    Ask-implies a desire to learn (through inquiring of the Lord in prayer)
    Seek-implies intentionality (purposefully searching for information)
    Knock-implies passion (a thrust forward into action or application).

    Great breakdown don’t you think?
