Ask, Seek & Knock

10 Nov

Ask, Seek & Knock…

In Matthew 7:7 Jesus says, “Seek and you shall find.” There is a real key here, a secret. In Hebrew/Aramaic, which He spoke, the word for seek is Bachar.

This is not just a nice gentle word. Bachar is a heavy word, a violent word. Bachar means to plow, to turn over and to break forth. God did not call us to seek the Lord, but to plow forward, overcome, turn over and do whatever you have to do to seek the Lord.

True seeking is linked to plowing, you have to persevere. Sometimes it takes work, sometimes you feel like giving up, but you keep going. The Lord causes our hearts to be plowed. He says, “Break up your fallow ground”.

Get your life turning, seeking God and tuned to receive His blessings. Plow with breakthrough actions. You want to seek the Lord, you want the blessing, then seek him with all your heart and press.

When it seems hard, you will break through. So if you want a breakthrough, break up your fallow ground and His blessings will reign upon you. Seek, plow and you shall find.

Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until he comes and showers his righteousness on you. Hosea 10:12

Seek to plow today, let God’s Word and Spirit have their way, and plow over the dormant, fallow ground in your life and walk.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
