Really God? Why did you plant a knock knock joke in my head when I planned to be all serious about Jesus as the door to our true life? The door to how You created us to be…from before we were formed in the womb…
The door to YOU…
Ask and it shall be given to you.
Seek and you will find.
Knock and the door will be opened.
So Father I ASK You to open the door to my heart Lord … to SEE You.
ASK – ask, seek, knock – I literally just saw the order ASK, ask, seek, knock. How many years have I been reading Matthew 7:7? Thank You, Father, for continuing to reveal new insight into Your beautiful, life-giving Word.
Your daughter…May I come in?
[ Ask, Seek, Knock ] “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
Thank You, Father. And the words – the door will be opened to you – invites me in. How do I begin to thank You for your invitation?
For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:8
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalm 100:4 (NIV)
I give thanks and praise Your Holy Name, Father God. So many glorious, godly attributes to praise and be grateful for, Father…

Jehovah, LORD, the Self-Existing One, The Relational God
El Shaddai, Lord God Almighty, The All – Sufficient One, The God who is More Than Enough.

Immanuel, God With Us…JESUS
“From cover to cover, the Bible offers us insights into Jesus’s character and purpose…(to) give us a deeper and clearer glimpse into the One who has come as Immanuel to be the living fulfillment and manifestation of all God’s names,” says Dr. Tony Evans in his book, The Power of God’s Names.
Thank You, Father God, for the descriptions of Your character and purpose. I want to know You, all aspects You choose to reveal. And I praise Your Holy Name for sending Your Son, Jesus, to open the door for me – and so many others – to come close to You.
20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. 21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.
