Hungry, starved? Why not shop at God’s heavenly 7-11? Check Matthew 7:7-11 and take advantage of God’s provision, stock up on His Grace, and never hunger for the rest of your life. All we have to do is ask. In fact God starts off these verses with; “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Then God makes a special promise to us. “For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Wow! God couldn’t have made it plainer or easier. Then God clarifies His promise. Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.
Question —- are you an EVERYONE? Have you ever asked God to share His blessings? Today is a good day to start.
