“Ask and it will be given to you;
seek, and you will find, and
knock and it will be opened to you”
Matthew 7:7 (ESV)
After we come to the LORD we learn we can pray and ask Him for anything. We soon discover that He can answer in one of three ways, “Yes, No, or Not right now.”
Sometimes, we make requests that, to us, are urgent. Those times we can’t find our keys require us to pray, “Lord Jesus, please help me find my keys.” I had a friend who is now in heaven who said that she got her quickest response from God when she prayed this prayer.
Just the other evening, I received an e-mail from the lady who us designing the book cover for my upcoming book. She requested I send her a photograph of myself if I wanted my picture on the back of the book jacket.
The first one I sent her was too small. I enlarged it. She then asked if I could scan the original into my computer and send that one to her.
The problem was. I didn’t know where that original picture was. Part of this stems from my being a packrat. I believe the difference between a packrat and a saver is that a saver is organized.
I looked around and said a mental prayer, “Lord Jesus, help me find that picture.” I reached over onto a shelf to some pages I had placed between these locker shelves I purchased to give me more space and pulled out a stack of papers I had clipped together to find that picture right on top of them.
I especially recommend this remedy when you go shopping, come out of the store, and can’t find your car.
