Knock Knock

Our new door bell plays a happy melody whenever someone visits our home. Our mailman also rings the door bell when he leaves a package. For a brief moment, I get excited expecting a gift even if it is something I ordered on line. I hope it is everything I imagined it to be whether it is a new dress, a pair of gloves or a replacement part for dishwasher.


Throughout the year, we often receive packages filled with advertising gimmicks. Yet, whenever I hear the door bell, I still become excited that a package has arrived. December is favorite month. My husband usually receives a box of fruit or some delicious dark chocolates and a funky calendar. Of course, he shares them with me. I savor every bite.


In the Bible, God asks us to knock on his door. I believe our heavenly father gets excited when we knock on his door. He wants us to seek him and know him. Matthew 7: 7 says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receiveth;" When we knock on God’s door, it represents our need to know him. He wants us to become more than someone who admires him. He wants us to join him in fellowship and love. He wants us to acknowledge that we need to have him in our life. He is waiting for us to discover our need for him as our Lord and Savior.


Remember God cares about you. Jeremiah 29:13 says, “Seek him with all your heart.” He is not surprised by your past or your questions. When we knock on God’s door, he will fill you will overflowing love and peace.


Knock, Seek and Find.
