The scripture for today, July 7 (7/7), is Matthew 7:7 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
How beautiful! The Creator of the universe pays attention to each and every one of us. How does he do it? How does he even sort us all out when thousands of us are praying to him at the same time?
But sometimes you may think he is not listening to your prayers. It takes time to answer some of them. If I am praying to meet my future husband or wife, God may have to move him or her from the other side of the country, get a new job for him or her and arrange for the two of you to “accidentally” bump into each other. This is just one example.
At other times you may ask for something like winning a ball game. When Jesus said whatever we seek will be given to you, he had already explained that you must “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness” (Matthew 6:33). So, within that context, God will give you your heart’s desire.
Maybe today, you can do a little bit of extra seeking and knocking.
SAMSON is storybook #7 in A CHILD’S BIBLE HEROES. Samson’s mother prayed and prayed for a son, and was finally granted her desire. But, was he ever a handful! People seem to think of only his weaknesses. Well, and his muscles. We tend to forget he was a judge over Israel. And he must have been pretty good at it because he judged 40 years.
