“Ask, and the gift is yours. Seek, and you’ll discover. Knock, and the door will be opened for you. For every persistent one will get what he asks for. Every persistent seeker will discover what he longs for. And everyone who knocks persistently will one day find an open door.” (Matthew 7: 7-8, the Passion Translation)
Persistence surely seems vital to gain answers and blessings. But Jesus’ words here are not a call for impatience or despair. They are a promise to us. We must gain our deepest longings as we ask for them with constancy and trust.
The first essential thing is that we must seek. This means that we have to set aside a belief that we already know or that the solution to life and to joy is something that we can readily perceive with our senses. We must realize that to truly find and feel the riches—that settled and serene heart of contentment and love—we must turn to Spirit, to God.
And this persistent seeking simply means that each day we have an occasion to learn more about what is truly satisfying, right, and real. Our persistent yearning and going to the Source for guidance and instruction, is a daily walk with Love, with Truth, with grace.
So, we are not waiting for some final reward. We are turning to our Father-Mother-Love each day and gaining insights, renewal, and a greater awareness of the glorious gift of Life.
