Matthew 7:7 (ask, seek, knock).
Ask with humility. We don't demand from God. We ask.
Philippians 4:6. Don't be anxious about ANYTHING.
Coming forward and asking for help. Our pride tells us we can handle it. Pride interferes with our asking. "I know I can't but you can Lord."
Throw off our pride and know God wants us to ask. He knows when we should be asking but aren't. We are Not of this world. Being lost is probably an okay thing at times.
Seek -- constantly seek. Don't stop seeking. I'm alive, the learning is not done.
Trying to seek better ways to do what we're doing. Seeking to make it better.
Seek God in the way we would seek something we've lost -- like our keys right before we need to leave. Seek God like that. If we do this we will have thoughts about God.
During the day, seek.
The enemy will fill your mind if you don't.
The enemy can steal your witness. If we aren't seeking God, other stuff will seek us. This needs to be an intentional act.
Re-evaluate my God seeking.
Re-evaluate my life.
The search for God needs to be my passion. Whatever I'm passionate about will drive me. It iwll fill my thoughts.
When I seek God with all my heart I will find Him!
Am I searching for what I want from God or for Him?
Knock and the door will be opened for you. A persistent knock. You knock constantly. Don't quit asking. Don't quit knocking. Draw attention to yourself at the door. Knock loudly. There's something we have to knock on doors we don't want opened.
God wants us to keep asking, keep coming to Him. Don't overlook the fact that there is a door. God put a door up -- not a wall.
Jesus says I am the way, the truth, the life, the door. Jesus is the door. Jesus is the gate. The door we are knocking on is Jesus. Faith comes by asking, seeking, knocking.
Pray God cleans out our hearts and minds. Pray we can be silent within so we can hear God. Sometimes we don't stop long enough to listen to God
"I was so afraid to knock on the door that I found an excuse NOT to knock on the door."
God doesn't want us to wait for anything.
