So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find; knock and the door will
be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives;
he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks,
the door will be opened.
The Holy Bible
New International Version
Notes from Lisa -
There are significant layers to this promise from Jesus.
He tells us to:
Ask: The very act of asking requires humility. In asking,
we admit we can't fulfill our desire; we need God's help.
The result is an opening of our hearts.
Seek: One can't seek something without knowing what it is.
Otherwise, we're just wandering aimlessly.
We're being told to clarify in our hearts what it is we're asking.
Furthermore, to seek indicates an active desire, a lively prayer.
Knock: Make some noise! Let God know you're there. Persevere!
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will
I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.
The Holy Bible
King James Version
For this is like the days of Noah to Me,
When I swore that the waters of Noah
Would not flood the earth again;
So I have sworn that I will not be angry with you
Nor will I rebuke you.
For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake,
But my loving kindness will not be removed from you,
And my covenant of peace will not be shaken,
says the Lord who has compassion on you.
New American Standard Bible
I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying,
"Behold, God's dwelling is with the human race.
He will dwell with them and they will be his people
and God himself will always be with them (as their
God). He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and
there shall be no more death, or mourning, wail-
ing or pain, (for) the old order has passed away.
New American Bible
The Last Word:
Heaven and earth will pass away, but
My words will by no means pass away.
New King James Bible

Sweet are the uses of adversity, which, like a toad, though ugly
and venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in its head.
