Jesus said, “And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Lk_11:5-13
If you ever had a bee fly into your mouth. If you ever had a door slammed in your face. If you ever had a job taken away, a spouse leave you, a house burned down, a child run away, a parent die, an accusation made in your innocence – then you tend not to ask or knock any more. But Jesus doesn’t reference any of that in his parable.
Sometimes it take a little more than one knock. Sometimes it takes a little more than just a bee to shut us up. Keep up your persistence, beloved! God will answer! It just may take a little more death before that resurrection. A little more explanation before that ascension. Just know that God IS listening – and we are His “beloved!”
