The Constant Pursuit

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”

Matthew 7:7-8

Always keep asking, knocking, and seeking in order to receive, have doors opened to you, and to find what you’re searching for.

Vigilance can be defined as concentrated focus over long periods of time during which one is searching for any indication of a target objective. It is in this sense that Yeshua is explaining how continued and prolonged effort is required in pursuing the things of God. Many will pray and then do nothing more; true believers are expected to keep praying, to keep searching, and to keep interacting with others in hopeful anticipation of sensing God’s direction and purpose.

It is this process of constant pursuit that branches into new possibilities. These can then open up into unforeseen (by us) directions of God’s will, thereby achieving his purpose. Remaining static and hoping that God’s will drops into our lap is not the biblical way. It is only as we remain consistently searching and moving that we can then be drawn and directed into the areas of growth that God has for us according to his will.
