Seek and You Will Surely Find
We need to be able to separate what God gives from what He doesn’t give. If it is not good, then it doesn’t come from God. Learn to ask, seek and knock. Don’t be scared of your Father, and don’t expect anything bad from your Father. He is and has always been ready to give you good gifts. He won’t give you a serpent for fish, or stone for bread, but He will give you what is good and would make you feel rest and trust in Him.
Your Father is love, and love would never seek to hurt you in any way. Instead, love reaches out and has empathy. And He can have empathy, because He has felt your pain in Jesus, and He has experienced your lack in Jesus and your loneliness in Jesus, and because of that, He knows what you feel, and is ready to help with His divine power.
Verse eight (8) emphasizes that all who ask receive and who seek find and who knock would have an open door; why? Because God is not hiding anything from you…some of us are not really seeking God or asking Him anything, but simply hoping that He knows and will act; He knows, but if you don’t willingly come to Him, or seek Him, then He really can’t do anything. Learn to seek God on issues that bother you, and ask Him for things you need, don’t be anxious, you honestly shouldn’t be, because Jesus is ready to hear you ask, and when you do expect something good.
