Matthew 7:7-8 (ESV)
7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”
*Many times people miss out on their blessings because they are afraid to ask for them, or following God's guidance and carry out the action of seeking Him in order to find what rightfully belongs to them. The process of receiving what's yours may be held up because you feel you aren't ready, aren't deserving, or you may not believe it even exists. Think about situations God has brought you out of, people He has tried to place in your life, or things He has given you...He felt you were worthy, so why not seek out & obtain your blessings with confidence? If you are afraid, then ask for wisdom and incorporate Him in your life more to help you with the balancing act. Remember, we can do all things through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:13). The problem is how we handicap ourselves be it due to lack of faith or complacency in sticking to what we know, instead of receiving what God promises and reaping what we have sowed. Ask yourself are you the one who is blocking your blessing?
