Ask, and it will be given to you; seek. and you will find; knock, and it will be open to you.Matthew 7:7
I have a two year old nephew I love a whole lot. Every time he wants to talk to me, I drop everything I am doing and give him all of my attention. If he asks me for something, then I do everything in my power to get if for him. I want him to have all that he needs and wants. The creator of the universe is similar in that he loves you and me so much that when we pray, he listens to us and wants to hear from us. Also, he wants to give us good gifts. How awesome a thought is that?
If you and I would seek God out, we would find him. He wants us to join him on this journey though life that he has laid out for us. If we are persistent in looking for him and asking for good things, he will honor those requests. Where are you looking for God? What are you asking him for? Are you persistent in asking?
