Ask and it will be given to you;
Seek and you will find;
Knock and the door will be opened to you.Matthew 7:7
Right now for my personal Bible study, I am working my way through Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount.” This past week found me in the 7th chapter of Matthew. As I studied the passage titled “Ask, Seek, Knock” the pictures featured above kept flitting through my mind as an illustration of the text. Although each picture features a different dog, these Labradors all have one thing in common. Their calm, unwavering approach. They have given me a visual reminder to approach the Lord without hesitation and with the serenity of knowing He hears, He sees, He responds.
I leave you with the concluding verses of this passage and the encouragement to visit my fellow blogger Pete Caliguiri’s reflective post on this same passage titled “Answered Prayer” (click here).
Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish will give him a snake? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!Matthew 7: 9-11
