Seek UNTIL you FIND!

 

Proverbs 2
 1 My son, if you accept my words
       and store up my commands within you,  2 turning your ear to wisdom
       and applying your heart to understanding,  3 and if you call out for insight
       and cry aloud for understanding,  4 and if you look for it as for silver
       and search for it as for hidden treasure,  5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.  6 For the LORD gives wisdom,
       and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. 

Luke 7:7 “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; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.  9 “Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

 
These Scriptures came out in prophetic words last Sunday, so I thought I’d highlight them here. 

 
Clearly the Lord is trying to remind of us of His promise to answer us when we call to Him; that He LIKES to grant us what we ask of Him. 
 
Notice the surety of his promise to give:
-“.. you WILL understand.. and (will) find the knowledge of God” (Prov. 2:5)
-“..it WILL be given”
-“… you WILL find”
-“…  the door WILL be opened”
 
He is a GOOD FATHER who LOVES to give good gifts to His children!  (Luke 7:11)
 
But notice the conditions of His giving —
1.  Accept My Words
2.  Store up My commands within you
3.  turn your ear to wisdom and apply your heart to understand
4.  CALL OUT for insight and CRY ALOUD for understanding
5.  look for it (wisdom) as for hidden treasure
6.  ask, seek, knock

 
When you find a treasure hidden in a field, the wisest thing to do is sell everything you have to get it!   

 
When we seek the Lord, sometimes it will “cost” us everything.  But to get the Reality of Him in the end is more than worth it! 
 
Many times we ask the Lord and seek Him for things (and notice here what is most needful to ask for is INSIGHT, WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE OF GOD) — but we give up and stop asking before we actually get the answer!  If He promises that the door WILL be opened, then we should never stop knocking UNTIL it actually opens!  How many answered prayers do we miss out on because we didn’t CONTINUE to seek, ask, knock until we FOUND what we were looking for?? 
 
On a personal note, I want to testify that I have been seeing MANY remarkable answers to prayer, specifically prayers that I have prayed CORPORATELY (i.e. with others, in agreement with others).  God is good! 
 
Let’s be those that seek UNTIL we find.  May we grow as people of prayer!!
