Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure-- pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.

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)

Action words are a significant part of language, and that is literally and figuratively.  It is difficult perhaps to imagine our speech devoid of verbs expressing our daily exploits, whether simple or extraordinary. This is congruent with the truth that life, being represented by our language itself, is full of action. Matthew 7:7, being one of our frequently quoted verses, contains three verbs having a noteworthy place in the dynamic Christian life and conveying profound realities we inevitably face.

Ask. Seek. Knock. These three words illuminate our undeniable position: we are always in need. We always come to a point of lack, if not to some degree of helplessness. The Living God, in His loving grace and mercy, has recognized our position and thus has commanded us to do these three things as a response to our state.

Ask. Questions surround us. Some of the most puzzling ones actually lie deep in the recesses of our minds, and at any point of the day, they begin challenging our knowledge even to the point of bothering us. Confusion proves to be an ordinary part of the unpredictable process of living. As the clouds of confusion billow and darken the horizon, we sometimes find ourselves panicky and paralyzed by the scenario itself. It is at these moments that God taps our shoulders and whispers, “My child, ask…”

Seek. We have all had experiences of getting lost. If we were to narrate our personal stories of this kind, the details will surely vary from the places we got lost to the reason why we did. Yet in the multiplicity of experiences, we find one thing that binds us – the mutual experience of getting lost in the thick and foggy woods of failure. We feel we are in the middle of this depressing place, alone and hopeless. On the verge of raising our hands up high and giving up, God reassuringly tells us, “My child, seek…”

Knock. Have you ever locked yourself out of your house? You will definitely agree that it feels dishearteningly sad outside, more so if what we have around are the gloomy darkness and pouring rain. Imagine the feeling and you get a simplified idea of being rejected, of being outside and unaccepted. We don’t have the keys to enter and even if we did, we almost expect the door to slam to our face on every attempt to open it. Or so we thought. Until we hear God’s inviting words, “My child, knock…”

Ask when you’re confused; seek when you can’t find your way; knock when you feel rejected. These are God’s loving commands to all of us. Sure enough, He has promised the perfect response to every act that we do when Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). When we are confused, Jesus leads us the way towards the light: the Almighty God. When we are lost in the gravity of our failures, Jesus inspires us with the truth of a Forgiving Father, a Faithful Friend who sticks no matter what. When we suffer from rejection, Jesus opens the door to life in the family of the Creator.

Truly, Jesus Christ is the complete answer to every real need that we have. He is the only Way, the only Truth and the only Life, bringing us back home to our dear Creator. In His life, death and resurrection, He has blessed us with the amazing grace from heaven above. And as we put our faith in Jesus and renew a love relationship with God, we will certainly receive His provision for an abundant life here on earth, as well as the gift of eternal life with our Creator.

Prayer:

Dear Father in Heaven,

Thank you for always being there for me, giving me the strength to face all the circumstances in life. I believe that you want me to come to Your throne and receive Your gift of grace, of an abundant life on earth and of a life everlasting with You in heaven. With a firm faith, I trust in Your unfailing love and saving grace so that I may go through this life with victory, living according to Your will and nurturing a love relationship with You.

I offer my life to You, my Creator and my Savior.

In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
