“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7, NLT).

We normally think of this verse in terms of what God will give us if we keep asking, things like a job, a mate, a new car. But what if this verse goes a little deeper? Perhaps God is telling us something different from what we always think when we read it.

The whole Bible is filled with moments when God reveals more of himself to mankind. He wants us to know him better, to know who he really is, especially as he has revealed himself in Jesus. He wants us to keep finding out, to learn and discover more about him every day. Even though God is a bit of a mystery to us who think mostly in three-dimensional terms (with a nod to my favorite Borg queen), all we need to do is ask, seek, knock. He loves to reveal himself and loves when the light bulb goes on over our heads.
