Matthew 7:7: – “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.”
Most times when we ask God for something we want answers right now. God is not a microwave God, He’s a relationship God. What stands out to me about this Scripture is that when I keep asking, seeking, and knocking; not only do I build relationship with God but what I initially started asking for begins to change. He has a way of doing that you know.
I would like to encourage you today in faith, focus and follow-through. First have faith in God for what you are asking for. Is it for His glory? You might need to re-evaluate what you are asking for. It looks like you want one thing but you actually need another.
Focus on what you are asking for by doing due diligence. Pray about it. Research it. Check your motives. Pray some more. God gives these answers; yes, no or wait. Are you listening?
Follow-through is important. If you ask God for something, are you going to honor His yes.
