Ask? Seek? Knock?

Ask? Seek? Knock?

One of my all-time favorite passages in the bible that always makes me smile is:

Matthew 7:7: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

Doesn’t sound so….well, easy?

It may well be but let’s set aside the religious aspect of the above mentioned passage found in the good book. Let’s take the gloves off and wipe away the sugar coat…humor me.

When is the last time, honestly, you ever got anything meaningful instantly? I mean in an instant.

Be honest.

Before we can really embrace such a profound passage we need to understand the pr-requisites.

Isn’t this true:

  •     Before you ask for something, know what you are asking for and how to ask for it and from the right person.
  •     Before you find what you seek, know that the seeking part may take time. Enjoy the seeking part.
  •     Before you decide to knock on a door that will no doubt open, look around the neighborhood and double check the address.

Now back to some sugar and a smile: “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

    Matthew 7:7 that is my fav verbs in bible, ever since i am reading the holy bible the sentences has helped me a lots about life.

    This sentences is quiet true, Lets talk about a book “The Secret”, i’ve been reading this books since 2013 and it changes my life a lots.
    The books covered with multiple sentences from the history, lots of successes people will use the sentences from the “Holy Bible”.

    Many of them, they know how to gain the truth, how to ask to seek or to believe, to knock or to believe, because in the holy bible “Jesus has said, just ask and you will receive”, quiet likely…

    Whatever we wish for we will get it but with a condition, hard work, put your heart in it, keep it going and knowing someday you will receive the greatness of what you’ve been asking for.

    The holy Bible is not talking about “Aladdin” when you squeeze it the big green soul from the tea pot comes out and tell you “Your wish is my command”, but if you’ve read the books by “Rhonda Byrne”, it opebs our heart to more universal way, she talks about “Universe”.

    The universe is part of our daily life, same goes to mariah carey and whitbey houston songs “When you believe”.

    Life is hard tho’ but if you keep asking the same things you ask for, do the right things everyday, follow your heart just like andrew matthews book cover and bind the 13th principles in your life, you will be amazed what will this life gives it to you.

    In our prayer’ before we go to sleel every night we ask for something great in life, feel the energy flow and ask for it.

    The verbs is not for someone, its for you, your life.

    “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

    A great mind comea with the great responsibilities, you are your own creation, you believe what comes to you and it shall…

    “Ask what you want, Believe as you holding it, Receive as you already owned it”…

    The holy bible teaching us about love, life and present.

    “Dont follow what you dont know but follow what you do know”

    Because the imaginations is like a Quotes, once you do believe it people will follow it… Because that’s the rules…

    Love, life & present…
    Pour all love inside what you want, make it more meaningful like your wonderful life, in this life only you that matters.
