Song # 1901 from Our Gospel In Song Collection by Col Johnston. In the Book of Matthew, we read in chapter 7 that Jesus tells us to ask, seek and knock. But we need to put this in context, that is, we may pray for something, but we may not receive it if it is not God’s will. Though God has promised to give us what we need, He has not promised to always give us what we want.
Jesus said “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). “For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks ‘finds’, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened” (Matthew 7:8). “Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?” (Matthew 7:9). “Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake?” (Matthew 7:10). “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 7:11). “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you” (Matthew 7:12).
Thought for today: to show you love God, share your love with others.
Thought for the future: the Lamb who died for us, is now our Shepherd who leads us. Where will you spend your eternity?
