Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
It is the right of every believer to ask and expect God to answer. Our text says, “Ask and it shall be given to you.” Ask here, (aiteo) means to demand for something due you. It is an open cheque given to all believers, but many are too afraid to ask…so they don’t look vain and ambitious. But God said, “…open your mouth wide and I will fill it.”(Psalm 81:10b).
Your due is what God has promised you in His Word, if He hasn’t said it in His Word then He is not under any obligation to fulfill it. So ask for those things that are due you in the Word. The word, “ASK” in our context can be simplified to mean:
A – Ask – requesting with boldness of that which should come to you.
S – Seek – intentionally search out every promise that is yours according to the Word of God, and apply it to your life.
K – Knock – being insistent, not letting up about receiving that which is due you as found in the Word of God.
James 4:2b says, “You do not have because you do not ask” (not because you cry not). Your needs are not going to be met because you cried the most or because you are the neediest person in the world. If that were the case, the world would right now not have any needy people or nations for that matter.
The guarantee for seeing your needs met is asking according to the promise in the Word, demanding that what the Word says is yours must come to you, believing in your heart that it is done, and not giving up until you see the promise fully manifested in your life.
John 15:7, I John 5:14-15 & Luke 11:5-13
Using Scriptural references, ask God for the things that are due you, and the things that seem out of your reach.
