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”
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?
