Matthew 7:7-8 says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened” (NIV). Ask, seek, and knock is the 3-step process of reaching your God-given potential. Let’s take a look at what each one of these entails.
Pray about what God is wanting to do in your life. If you are going to climb to your God-given potential, it must start with talking to the One who created that potential in the first place. If you are going to climb that mountain, it must start on your knees.
Seek out the best ways to make it happen. Be creative. We serve a creative God. He created us in His image. Therefore, we must have some level of creativity as well. Let’s use it. Creatively seek out ways to get from where you are to where God wants you to be.
Knocking is taking action. All the prayer and creative seeking of God’s plan will not do any good if we do not act on that plan. Take action! Nothing happens until something happens. So, go make things happen!Ask God about climbing to your God-given potential, creatively seek out ways to make that happen, and then take enthusiastic action. If any changes are going to take place in your life it must be done immediately and enthusiastically. Start now and start inspired!
Tie the ask, seek, knock plan in with the three actions we have talked about this week of never settling, living with enthusiasm, and turning the world upside down and you will be well on your way to reaching your God-given potential.
Are you ready for this journey? Are you ready to join the revolution against the mundane into an enthusiastic life of God-sized proportions? Ask, seek, knock, never settle, live with enthusiasm, and turn the world upside down.
God is still wanting you to be a part of what he is doing in this world. It is not just about going to heaven when you die. It is also about bringing strong glimpses of heaven right here on earth by serving God in the way he has made you to serve him.
God is not done with you… so never settle, live with enthusiasm, and turn the world upside down… Here we go!
