Word Filled Wednesday

Today is Word Filled Wednesday over at 160AcreWoods. This is a day filled with visits to other blogs and a time of being encouraged and filled with the beauty of God's Word in picture and Word.
This verse is a powerful reminder of Jesus' words. It is not a Santa Claus type asking for anything that we want. It is not a promise for a new car, new house, new job or hobby that will be granted. When we live our lives seeking His will and direction in obedience to His Word, our desires become what His will for us is. Our desire is to obey Him and love Him.
He welcomes us to ask, seek and knock and He assures us that He is always there.


May your Wednesday be blessed!

  1. Thanks for sharing your words on my blog. Obviously the verse you mentioned is one God wants me to hear as just yesterday I was thinking of it, but couldn't put the reference with the words. Thanks for doing just that - it is amazing how God works.

  9. I appreciate how you mention that it's not a "santa claus type" request... Jesus promises to give us what we desire when we OBEY him, and our desire when we obey him, is simply to do his will! Thank you SO much for sharing!!
