Shall be Opened!

A friend once asked me, “When is that “ideal”, prince-charming coming into my life, Jenny?”

I had no answer to that query simply because I do not know the answer. 

People desire so many things:  a husband, a wife, a house, a car, a child, a university degree.  But it stops there.  A desire.  It only sums up to a “desire”.

The Holy Scriptures say, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”  Matt. 7:7

Ask.  The main condition.  Is it God’s will?  Are you entrusting yourself to God’s loving authority, praying in line with God’s Word, and being led by His Spirit?  Do you surrender to His precepts and discerning to misleading choices and deception?  Is it God’s priority for you?

Seek.  Do you ask the Holy Spirit to lead your steps, to direct your ways, and to guide you with your decisions?  Do you go out of your way to find what God has in store for you?

Knock.  Are you "persistent and bold" enough to walk in faith (Luke 11:5-8), willing to wait and persevere?  Do you believe that God will provide what you desire and need?    He may not answer right away but He notices you!  Now, go and tag on His robe.

Our faith and prayer exposes our belief in our all-knowing, all answering God who gives good and perfect gifts to His children.  The key is knowing our Heavenly Father and knowing we are His, He will not withhold anything from us. 

In His perfect time….

It will be given you,
You shall find
It will be opened to you!

A beautiful weekend to one and all! 

This is an old door knocker from my aunt.  Thank you Tita Pynky! It’s now on our door!
