ASK, SEARCH, KNOCK

Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘Grace for the Moment’ by Max Lucado.

Today I pray, “Dear God, In preparation for a more peaceful world, what is Your graceful reminder in this moment? Amen.”

Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:

“A Heavenly Perspective.
‘Ask, and God will give to You.
Search, and you will find.
Knock, and the door will open for you.’
—MATTHEW 7:7

Go back and report to John what you hear and see: ‘The blind receive sight, the lame walk… and the good news is preached to the poor.’
This was Jesus’ answer to John’s agonized query from the dungeon of doubt: ‘Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?’
We don’t know how John received Jesus’ message, but we can imagine. I like to think of a slight smile coming over his lips as he heard what his Master said. For now he understood. It was’t that Jesus was silent. It was that John had been listening for the wrong answer. John had been listening for an answer to his earthly problems, while Jesus was busy resolving his heavenly ones.
That’s worth remembering the next time you hear the silence of God.”
—MAX LUCADO
