I’m fascinated by the sequences of God’s advice to find answers: ask, seek, knock. Ask is the easiest, which would suggest that seek is less easy, and knock is hardest. I would think that knocking would be easier. It requires a little more work than asking but not much. But what if knocking is harder? Seeking only requires I do some searching. It’s dependent on my abilities, the same as asking. Knocking requires I exercise trust in someone else; finding the courage to brave what might be on the other side of the door, believing whoever answers will be able to help me. Then again, it may be a bookend command; asking is considered similar to knocking. I’ve noticed in my scripture study that sometimes God does that: Says something, builds on it, and reiterates what He said first, like a “just making sure you heard the whole message.” What all three have in common is coming to God for answers, one way or another. ~ Laurel Hawkes
