Jesus is clear about the need for persistence. On many occasions, he teaches us and challenges us.
Jesus wants me to ask. Jesus wants me to be persistent in my asking.
Jesus promises me that if I ask, I’ll get what I am asking for.
In addition to asking, God’s goal for me is to seek and to knock.
Ask, seek and knock. Persistence is the key.
“But let me tell you, even if he won’t get up because he’s a friend, if you stand your ground, knocking and waking all the neighbors, he’ll finally get up and get you whatever you need.”
“Here’s what I’m saying:
Ask and you’ll get;
Seek and you’ll find;
Knock and the door will open.”
