Matthew 7:7-8 (New International Version, ©2010)
Ask, Seek, Knock7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
When I was pregnant with my son I was warned that I probably wouldn't carry him to full term. I was prepared then by one of the obstetricians that he didn't believe I would deliver a live baby. The baby just wasn't growing the way they wanted him to. I was being prepared to miscarry or for a stillbirth. You can't prepare for either. Not an expecting mother. I was having a very difficult time with the news. At this point in time I had never attended church as an adult. I hadn't picked up the bible. Didn't pray much. And my husband hadn't been in years but used to be very devoted and faithful. Although he used to be he wasn't anymore.
Well, this day came and my husband had to go back to work. He called from work to reassure me that the doctors were wrong and he didn't believe a word they said. I asked him "What are we going to do? I can't go through that!" He said, read the bible. Pray. And that's exactly what I did. I didn't know where to open to, what to read...so I decided that whatever page I opened is what I would read. And Matthew 7 it was. And just like He has every time since then, God spoke so strongly to me! In that very moment, I was calm. I knew that I could handle whatever it was that God intended for my family.
His plans for us?
|We serve an awesome God!|
