Application of the Fighter Verse for October 23/24

Track 27 in Songs Set E – Matthew 7:7-8 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.

God is gracious and His promises are everywhere in these verses!

All we need to do is ask, seek and knock.

But, for what purpose?

God desires that we have more of Him and that we enjoy Him!

As I pray through this passage, the Lord compels me to ask Him for help in writing this.  I want more of His presence.  I am hungry to know him more.  And the more that I taste and see that He is good, the more I love Him.  I rejoice and find myself full and satisfied in the Lord’s giving of Himself.

So, right here, right now the Lord is waiting for you to ask Him, to seek Him and He will open Himself to you.

Mark 12:30-31 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.

How often do you ask the Lord?  seek the Lord?  knock upon His door?  Do you come seeking Him or His gifts?

Practical suggestions this week:

– Pray through this verse each day asking, seeking and knocking.

– Search your heart for why you ask for what you do?  Whom does it benefit?  Is the Lord shown to those around you as most satisfying by what you are asking for?

– Seek first the kingdom of God in your asking. (Mt 6:33)

How will you use this scripture song in your life this week? with your spouse? your children? your family? your neighbors?
