“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened” (Matthew 7:7-8).

Press on, press on! How easily we give up. The Lord wants us to learn how to flex our spiritual muscles. Every athlete knows that just beyond fatigue is often the best performance. The lazy never get anywhere, but those who persevere go a long way. You learn by pressing through what is difficult. Continue knocking. Continue seeking. The Lord is bountiful in giving to those who seek. He who endures to the end will be saved.

Lord, You know I need right priorities. You are not going to make me rich by winning the lottery. Oh sure, some faithful have won, but the point is that You want me to exercise my spiritual muscles. Help me to learn how to press on, continue seeking, and being persistent for what is right.

Lord Jesus, I hear these words and the first thing I want to do is think how I can do these things. You know all those places where I am deficient. Help me to knock at the door of my own limitations so that I seek You always to the fullest extent for which You have enabled me, according to Your grace. Lead me, Lord, in the way You know I need to go and help me to not give up. Amen.
