I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs.
“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.NKJV
So I am reading this morning and I am thinking about the one thing I always pray for when I pray. I always pray for favor in everything, people, places and his work in his business. There is a little story in Facing the Giants. It came to mind this morning as I was reading. It is so true. When I think of how many doors He has opened for me in the last year, Doors that in no way could have been opened by anyone including myself. Doors that were opened in spite of myself and my actions …. Astounds me.
Prepare for Rain
The story happens when Mr. Bridges walks in to Coach Taylor’s office and gives him a word out of Revelation 3:7-8. “……………………….. This is the message from the one who is holy and true, the one who has the key of David. What he opens, no one can close; and what he closes, no one can open:8 “I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me. After he leaves the Coach’s office, Grant gets up and goes out into the hallway and stops Mr. Bridges and He asked him if he believed that God gave that to him. Mr. Bridges said, “Yes I do”
Then He tells the story about the two farmers who desperately needed rain, both of them prayed for rain, but only one of them went out and prepared his field to receive it. Which one do you think trusted God to send the rain? Coach Taylor said, “the one who prepared his field for it”. Mr. Bridges then said, “Which one are you? God will send the rain when he is ready; you need to prepare your field to receive it.
Here are the questions: Are you preparing your Field?
Are you still praying for that door to be opened?
Have you giving up? I say keep knocking!!!!!
