Ask, Seek, and Knock

September 29, 2011


It seems that there are a lot of people in the world who are unhappy. They seem not to be pleased with where they are or what they are doing. Their unhappiness manifests as anger towards others or themselves as well as a number of other symptoms. I am not a specialist in the area so I will not attempt to explain why or how things happen. I just know this. We worry way to much about where we are and what we are doing.

Have you ever asked yourself this? Where would I be if…? What would I be doing if…? We surely have to accept that the decisions or choices that we make contribute to the outcome of our lives. We must teach that sound decisions are important. It does seem or appear that we make some bad or unnecessary choices at times. We may even suffer because of the decisions or choices that we make. Consider this. How many perfect people do we find in the bible?

Not discounting the fact that right decisions is important, we still have to believe that God is merciful. He said ask and you would receive. I don’t know how He works everything out but He does. He said seek and you would find. We need to be proactive at pursuing what we believe God is wanting in our lives. He said knock and the door would be opened. You don’t have to go through every door. If you have reservations that is okay but how are you going to know what is available if you do not knock.

Too much is made of making mistakes. I am not in any way saying that it is okay to make mistakes. I am saying we serve a God who is well able to keep us from falling and to present us as faithful on that day. God’s will for our lives is for us to be fulfilling His will and purpose and that to satisfaction. There are many things that cause us to be unhappy. Determine you are in the place God wants you to be and be faithful.

Man_Up and be the man God wants you to be.
