Last year my car “gave up the ghost” so to speak, well almost. My car was an older model, and with older cars there are always repairs. Tired of spending money to have it fixed, I told my husband that we are no longer putting in the shop, but it was time to get a new car.
To be honest, I am growing weary of not having my own transportation. I have been using my husbands truck to do my errands, but I prefer a smaller car to get around. It hasn’t been all that bad since I do work out of the home.
Last night in reading the above scripture, I had to pause. We have been car shopping for a new vehicle, and we finally picked one out. Now all we need is the money to purchase it.
ASK -SEEK -KNOCK
As I read the verse, the words ask, seek and knock stood out to me.
We have asked the Lord for a new car, we have shopped at our local car dealers finding the vehicle that is just right. Last night in my Bible reading and prayer time, I found myself knocking on the door telling the Lord that we are ready to have our new car.
Will it work? Is this a right principle?
So many times we want something out of life but have no plan or direction on HOW to get there.
I grew up not being encouraged to dream or to aspire to much. It was not until the Lord changed my mindset that I now aspire and desire for better things in life and from myself.
I have discovered that with a new mindset, many things have changed. I no longer settle for less, but desire to be the best and improve at what I do. No longer do I expect the crumbs from the table. If so, then it’s time to knock on the door.
May you be richly blessed this day!
Note: I have been in an intensive ministry training course which is why I did not post last month. I’m still in the course, but am taking a small break.
