If you don’t ask, you won’t receive.
If you don’t seek, you won’t find it.
If you don’t knock, the door won’t be opened. Ask, seek, knock. Sounds simple but so many times I back away from doing these things. Why? Out of fear, pride, not wanting to appear selfish.
I have determined to ask God to give me every spiritual blessing that He has put aside for me. He has a whole warehouse with my name on it. I am taking everything out of storage and using it to build His kingdom. Why let potential go to waste??? Empty that storage space of gifts, abilities, and opportunities and leverage them ALL…for His glory. God’s not holding anything back. He just wants me to claim what is mine through His great generosity. I am taking everything out of lay away and using it while it is still good. What a shame it would be if I don’t ask, seek, or knock and end up wasting what God had for me that would have blessed my life and could have blessed countless others. Not today.
Father God, I ask for all the heavenly blessings you have for me to be taken out of storage and delivered to me so that I can have every gift from You possible.
I seek Your will for my life and I claim all the territory You have parceled out with my name on it. I want nothing left to be wasted. I want to use it all to proclaim Your kindness.
I knock at the doors of Your heart and ask you to open doors that only You can open. I trust Your wisdom to know which doors are good to open for me and which ones need to remain closed. I trust in Your timing, so I will keep knocking and know that You delight to open opportunities for me to display Your goodness.
I approach You boldly because Jesus opened the door for me to enter your house… not through the front door where guests have to ring the bell and wait to be allowed to enter… No, I swing in through the kitchen door where true friends and family can come completely unannounced and make ourselves at home in Your house.
God, thank YOU for ASKing me to climb up on Your lap and be Your child. Thank You for SEEKing me and pursuing me with Your great love!!! And thank You for KNOCKing on my heart door every day and asking to make Yourself at home with me. Your love blows me away!!! I am Yours and You are mine.
“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 (NIV)
