It is time for another Stampin Sisters In Christ Challenge, I am the host who does not have a card made because all of my stuff was packed a week ago. :) The scripture I have chosen:
Scripture: Mt. 7:7-8 7 “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."
In 1975 I had moved to Jacksonville Fla. We were staying in a motel waiting for our furniture to arrive. I did not know the Lord at that time but the Holy Spirit had been moving on me with conviction. That Sunday Morning I woke up hearing the Holy Spirit speak to me, 'seek me' there was a bible in the night stand and when I pulled it out, it fell to the floor, when I picked it up my eye's went straight to this verse, it became alive in me. Right away there was an urgency to go to church, as I quickly explained to my husband what was going on we got dressed and rushed out of the door. As we were driving we were passing many church's and my husband kept asking which one, and I said " I don't know, keep driving God will show me where to go." Finally the Holy Spirit spoke and said that one right there, it was Ortega Baptist church, celebrating 100 years of service. I ran in and was about to disrupt the service, I needed this Jesus, but the Holy Spirit restrained me until after the pastor spoke. When he was done I ran up to the front of the church and was over taken by the Holy Spirit and with the Gideon bible still in hand I said " I do not want this religion that you people have here but I want this living Jesus I just read about." That day began the journey of my spiritual walk with God, that morning planted the seeds of faith that have grown through the years. Ask and it will be given, seek and you will find, knock, for the door will be opened. We are told to pray (ask) for the peace of Israel, for the peace of the nation we live in, for rain, food, the list goes on and on. We are to ask believing, we are to seek God diligently with all of our hearts by prayer, study of His word and guarding our soul's against sin. We are to knock, continuing until He answer's. And this is also a command, not a suggestion!
