Do you have a favorite “go to” phrase that you use when in a funk or needing motivation?

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

The sky is the limit.

Winners never quit and quitters never win.

Be the best version of you.

or quotes such as these…

“Will you look back on life and say, “I wish I had,” or “I’m glad I did”?”
~ Zig Ziglar

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
C. S. Lewis

Have you heard the phrase “Ask, seek, knock”?

Matthew 7-7

This week as I was reading and spending time with God, I was given a new phrase. A three word mantra that Jesus first shared as He was teaching the crowd on the mountain. Ask. Seek. Knock. Three words with so much meaning. A reminder of how to pray when life is unbalanced.

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8

Ask, seek, knock. God’s anthem for our life. God’s call to deepen our relationship with Him.

God seeks communion with us. And even though He knows our every thought even before it is an inkling, He desires to hear the very words that are in our hearts. His heart longs to beat in sync with ours and will when we share our thanks, heartaches, discouragement or praises. Jesus clearly taught us to ask. Keeping our thoughts buried or stuffing our feelings will keep them hidden. But Jesus calls us to ask, seek, and knock. He is the answer to our questions, everything we need when we are searching and is the person patiently waiting on the other side of the door when we knock.

God is our purpose, hope, joy and understanding. Pursue God with all you have in you. Ask for more wisdom, hope or joy. God will give them to you. Nothing pleases God more than when you seek Him with your whole heart.

May we speak to God openly by sharing our hidden needs knowing He loves when we seek Him as the answer to our questions and the response to our every need.

Ask, Seek, Knock. A three word mantra straight from Jesus to you. Speak it and believe it today!

In grace and peace,

Mary
