Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Have you ever felt like God has been awfully quiet lately? Like perhaps, He has stopped listening to your prayers? Have you considered that the problem may not be related to God's answers? That the problem could be related to you?
God has said in His Word that when we ask for things that are in line with HIS will for us, we will receive them; when we seek HIS face, we will find Him; when we knock on the door of God's opportunity, that door will be opened wide. However, if we don't ask the right questions, we won't get the answers we need. We must learn to ask the right questions. We must also be willing to accept the answer that God gives, for He does not always answer prayers in the way we request or expect.
Do not ask “What do I need to do”; instead, ask “What must be done? What is YOUR will, LORD? What isYOUR plan for me?”. He will show you the way. He will show Himself to you. He will open your eyes, so you can see what He has been doing in your life all this time! He will also show you all He is willing and able to do, once you have surrendered to His will. Seek Christ, and He will show you joy and life. He will open doors and tear downwalls for you. But it all begins with a question.
