Affirmations can be used to change your thinking and change your life! This week let’s focus on ‘Ask and it shall be given unto you.

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.” Matthew 7:7-8 Jesus made three specific promises about prayer:

1. Everyone Asking in prayer will receive.

2. Everyone Seeking something in prayer will find what they are looking for.

3. Everyone Knocking on spiritual doors in prayer will eventually see them opened.

With such an incredible guarantee, why are we not receiving everything we ask for? Either Matthew 7:7-8 is not true, or we need to learn the true meaning of Asking, Seeking and Knocking. It’s time to take hold of the promise and begin Asking, Seeking and Knocking our way toward guaranteed results! 

Our prayers to God are not unlike our requests of men. Our prayers are based in a relationship, as Jesus points out in Matthew 7:8. If a child asks his father for something the father knows to be hurtful, the request is denied. The child may be frustrated and unhappy when he doesn’t get what he asked for, but he should trust his father.

Conversely, when the child asks for something that the father knows is beneficial, the father will provide it eagerly because he loves his child.

This week let’s start to ask.
