I read this and felt inspired to share it with you. Matthew 7:7 has always been near and dear to my heart, as I have been a long time daydreamer in pursuit of God’s will for my life. I’ve asked Him for many things. Love. Children. My father. Money. Success. Wisdom. And I’ve sought His answers. Some yes’s. Some no’s. Some not right now’s. But knocking on His door? You mean, actually approach the Creator?
Maybe like some of you, I often find myself asking, “Who am I that I should come and knock on His door?” To knock on His door would entail being in His presence and given He’s infinite–I’ve often felt unworthy, unable to grasp Him wholly and thus I withdraw from knocking. From taking up His time. But I think that’s the beauty of God. When we are too afraid to knock on His door, He knocks on our hearts. And when we ask, “Lord, who am I that you should come and knock at my heart’s door?” He merely opens His arms to receive you and calls you, “Daughter!”
What about you? Have you ever asked, sought after but perhaps been too afraid to knock?


  1. Thank you for posting this, and it’s just as you said. We knock and we approach our Creator. We have full access to our Father because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.
