“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7NKJV
The evangelist Pat Robertson wrote a book published over 30 years ago, entitled ‘Answers to 200 of Life’s most probing questions’. In his book, he spoke about this passage of scripture in Matthew. “Jesus taught us the law of constant prayer (directed toward God) and of perseverance (in human conduct). On one occasion, he said, “Ask and it shall be given to you, seek, and you will find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Matthew 7:7).
The Greek present tense places emphasis on continual action. Jesus didn’t say knock one time and stop, but keep knocking until the door is opened. God, in his wonderful wisdom, has constructed the world in such a way that only the diligent and persevering would gain victory. People who make up their minds to reach the finish line that God has posted beyond whatever obstacle, will triumph. The fearful and hesitant, those who don’t persevere, will always lose.”
There are several breakthroughs that we are seeking. We need to ask, seek and knock persistently until we see the change we are looking for.
