Have you had your JOY JUICE today? Have you asked God for His joy? Are you seeking the joy through a personal relationship with him? Knock on the door of His heart and you WILL find inexpressible joy.
In Matthew 7: 7 we find the words of Jesus: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” As we pray, we are given these simply guidelines to ASK, SEEK and KNOCK. And then verse 8 gives us an unconditional promise: For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
Doesn’t it fill you heart with JOY to know that when you ask, seek and knock, God is hearing your prayer? These verses are promises to the Christian: He hears and answers our prayers.
NOW, He may not answer in the way we think is best or in our time frame. Remember…. “his ways are not our ways”. But if we trust that God is going to answer our prayers with our best interest in mind, (even if the answers is a “no”), this fills us with peace and assurance…..blessed assurance as the old hymn says packed full of JOY!
Though we may not always understand God’s timing or His ways, we can trust that He hears our prayers. Rest joyfully in that truth.
