…knock and the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7
The previous two devotionals are related to this one. We ask; we seek, and we knock. Not much difference really. The idea is one of being desperate for God. Not asking for the sake of getting; not seeking for the sake of getting; not knocking for the sake of God opening the door for a prize in return.
God Himself is the prize.
When we get that prize, the rest pales in comparison. No amount of wealth, no mirage of fame, not the most beautiful appearance could compare to the ultimate prize of God. A newer car and bigger house seem so shallow and meaningless.
Sure, we get the First Place prize of salvaton when God truly enters our life, but the Grand Prize awaits us daily. The door to His study, so to speak, is cracked open and awaits our little knock. He’s waiting for us to knock.
