Keep Knocking

“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Luke 11:9

After the disciples asked the Lord to teach them to pray, He gave them the example of the Lord’s Prayer. He then asked them to imagine that they went to a friend at midnight to borrow three loaves of bread to feed a friend who arrived from a long journey. The one inside responds, “Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children and I are in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ Jesus assures, “Even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacity he will surely get up and give you as much as you need.”

From this passage, we learn that we can keep knocking on our Father’s door, and not give up. “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

We may think, we have been praying and knocking for months and months now that God save us from this pandemic. We are now in the bottom rung in the world in how we have responded to this worldwide crisis. There are 2,613,070 people in our country who have caught this virus, and 38,828 who have died. What is God doing? Is He turning a deaf ear to our cries? But God has not promised that we will have it easy in this world. Jesus Himself said in John 16:33, “I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation and trouble and hardship. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” 


The most important thing for God is we will join His family, and get to heaven someday. God gave us a beautiful world and gave us His laws in order to take care of it, but man wanted to do his own thing, and make his own way. Man rejected God’s ways. We chose abortion because we want to have freedom from the responsibility of our actions. We chose to be governed by men with no conscience instead of righteous men. We did not take care of our environment and instead put fake sand to prettify a dirty beach. 

We will find that God has used the mess we have made of things, the destruction we have caused to families, to our church, our country, to bring us closer to Him. He is the grand weaver, and although now, we see an ugly tapestry, one day we will see the beautiful design He has made using the mismatched colors and tangled threads our hands have given Him. 

“Do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
