Does God answer our prayers? Most would say emphatically yes, yet there are times in between our ask and our receive that can challenge our faith!
“Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be open.”Matthew 7:7
Asking is easy as it requires our desire or need combined with us vocalizing it to Him. This is the basic level of prayer which most people go to and stay at, yet will we go further? There are times before we receive the answer that we need to seek Him and knock on the door of His heart! This takes passion, grit, and determination to not give up but to pray and keep on praying until you receive the answer!! Seek and knock take more than asking as they touch our heart with God. What will our heart reveal in the wait? Only going through this will reveal it but we have a choice to make. We can make a decision that changes everything as we seek Him with our whole heart and knock on His door no matter what. This is what it takes to go beyond an answer to a prayer, to a movement of answers that impact others beyond us.
Our families, our Church, our friends, and Bloomington IN can have answered prayers when we ask, seek, and knock. Think of what could happen if we all took this step? This Sunday we are going to ask, seek and knock as people will be water baptized, others connected in the vision, and our church taking more ground in Christ!! This new series “Checkmate” will be powerful to see how Jesus has made the checkmate move for our lives, thus asking, seeking and knocking is worth it and needed.
November will be amazing! Plan to attend!
Look forward to seeing you at 9:30 and 11:30! Love, build, lead!
Something great is happening,
