Ask, Seek, Knock

Updated on March 10, 2012

Ask, Seek, Knock


Matthew 7: 8-9

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.


Matthew 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.


Matthew 13:11

He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Some believers think this is all about personal prosperity. Money, success and wealth. I think if you ask for knowledge and gifts from God- such as wisdom or spiritual gifts. Then seek for them and knock at his doors of opportunity. He will give them to you. I'm not saying it's bad to pray for finances, God knows our needs. and we need money to live. I'm saying pray about everything.

      Good point Sky. When we put God first in our lives, He will supply all our physical needs without our even asking. I've seen proof of it in my own life. God Bless
