I was studying my bible and a thought dropped in my heart. I was thinking to myself “in the bible it says “…ask and it shall be given, seek and ye shall find, knock and the door shall be open..”. That means if, for example, I ask God to bless me with a job I desire and I get called for the interview but wasn’t offered the job does that make the bible verse Matthew 7:7 irrelevant?”.
This got me thinking and I found myself saying if after praying for a job or a promotion or something that I greatly desired and it doesn’t come through as a Christian, it means God is preparing a better way for me or might be shielding me from future pains which I am unable to see presently. If that is the case, it means the verse isn’t powerless. It could also mean there is a better position awaiting or a lesson to learn from that experience but our minds get clouded with our present situation preventing from grasping the knowledge or blessing that awaits us.
Having said that, as christians our faiths are often questioned when good things don’t come our way as we expect they should and it gets worse when we see these things been handed to unbelievers on a Platter of gold. Do not get discouraged when these things happen. Just believe your creator has got better plans for you. In other words, your greater is coming if you hang in and don’t throw in the towel.
