“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened tI o you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8 NKJV
This has always been one of my favorite scriptures. But, it’s been a little hard to fully grasp the whole concept. It has always seemed to me that I shouldn’t bother God with trivial things when there are people with really serious problems who need his help. I forget that God can do anything! He can deal with all of us at once. He hears all of our prayers at one time and finds none of our requests to be trivial. He loves us more than we can even imagine.
Even so, I don’t think about asking for help with things that don’t seem that important. But, I’m forgetting that he wants to guide me in my daily life if I will only let him. Sometimes I don’t feel like I need his guidance; that I can do it on my own. But why can’t I grasp the fact that God cares more about me than my family, my best friend, or even myself? I guess I continue to struggle with completely giving myself to him. He waits patiently for us to come to him with our requests and to fully trust in his will.
