    May God's will always be done
  • Abhi Sewak for verse 7
    John 3:3-7 Jesus said that- "no one can enter the Kingdom of God unless he is born of water and Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh,but the Spirit gives birth to Spirit....You must be born again. " The Spirit that has to be born again lies within you in a dormant state in your sacrum bone. You do not seek material gain.You only seek to be born again as Spirit to reach God.Faith in God and adherence to rightism is of-course pre-requirement.
  • MockingBird for verse 7
    You must ask according to the word of God. God will not give you anything that will turn you away from Him . He will back off and let you get what you want but He may not be in it. You cannot gamble with God . Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above , and cometh down from the Father of lights , with whom there is no variableness , neither shadow of turning.
  • Anthony Sims for verse 7
    I want a new job, I want a new truck, I want more money and a big fine house. Want, want, want. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. Taking on the mind of Christ in such a material world is quite the struggle. There are so many barriers between us and Jesus. The only word used to describe Jesus ' relationship with the disciples is that they followed. God created us to serve him. As our bond grows stronger and deeper with God, as described in Eph. 3:14-21, our need for things of this world diminish. What we want changes. And whatever God blesses us with is to be shared with our less fortunate brethren. Before we ask and knock let 's first ask God what HE wants.
  • Sabrina dorsey for verse 7
    Yes I love Matt.7 7 what the words are saying in this chapter u can ask 4 what u want and God show up and show out if u have faith u shall reviced !!!!!! In Jesus .......
  • What ever u ask u need believe and. Have. Faith that is. Done before. Seeing it and what ever u seek u shall find. If u are right with God cause he knows our heart and when u knock. The door shall be opened because. He is the only one who can open doors that are closed in our life
