Do we persevere in our petitions and prayers to the Lord? Do we continue to seek and to knock? The Amplified version of the bible presents Matthew 7:7-8 as follows:
Matthew 7:7-8 Amplified Bible
8 For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened.
Could it be that we do not persist as we should? Let’s follow this scripture (the instructions of our Lord Jesus) and continue to ask, seek and knock. Do not be discouraged but know that there is a wonderful promise associated with this.
