My New Three Step Process

Knock, Seek, Find

Last week I talked about the Egyptians and some character flaws I tend to have that make me similar to them. I learned the importance of consulting God before acting on anything but most importantly, I truly understood the importance of Mathew 7:7 for the first time.

In this verse God showed me a three step process that I can go through to seek His guidance in any situation. It has helped me so much I want to share it with you too!

The first step is to ask. Simple enough right? Well that’s what I thought until I looked up the definition.  Asking is defined as saying something in order to obtain an answer or some information. The key here is to ask and not do anything until I get a clear answer from God. Let’s just say it’s easier said than done because sometimes it means waiting a really long time.

The second step is to seek. This step is different because it involves actually stepping out and doing something. This means acting out on what the Lord has asked me to do whether it’s through active prayer or putting a staff in the nile river and turning the river into blood- highly unlikely but hey, you get the point 😉

The third and final step is to knock. This means making a loud noise or doing something to get your point across. It means being bold and letting someone know you are there. As I look back on the word “knock” I understand why God used that specific word in this bible verse for the first time. When Moses struck the water in the Nile I doubt it was quiet. I bet you it involved a pretty big bang that got the Egyptians attention- even if it was just for a second.

As I look back at all the stories in the bible, I don’t see a single miracle that occurred quietly. Daniel got thrown into a pit with some pretty scary and loud lions, Elijah called down fire, and Jesus was crucified on a cross where people were yelling at Him the whole time.

The most important thing I will take away from this lesson the Lord has taught me is this:
If Moses hadn’t asked and sought God then he would not have had the confidence to stand before Pharaoh and perform that miracle.

In the same way I must follow this three step process in order to truly allow God to be in control and to make sure I am making the right decisions.
