Ask, Seek, and Knock: What Input Do You Receive?

We ask, seek, and knock to receive direction relating to the topic of our inquiry. When we ask, we hope to receive answers that are relevant to the question. In our seeking, we want to be able to find what it is we are looking for. Likewise, in our knocking, we desire that the door will open into the place of our quest. Receiving, finding, and experiencing openings is especially important when we ask, seek, and knock about the inward Deity.

Ask, seek, and knock about issues relevant to the divine presence within you. We know that the Deity of our soul will always reward us with goodness in our asking, seeking, and knocking concerning that divinity. The conflict involves people who are not that loving to us.

Seek to find the supernatural presence within you, will you receive direction to help you find that place? Some people will intentional redirect you away from your search. Knock on the door that opens to the divine presence in you, will those doors be open to you?  Some people will close and slam those doors, hoping they never open to you.

Ask, seek, and knock about issues relevant to the blossoms of the spiritual fruit. Ask about situations involving love, goodwill, and kindness, will you receive hateful and cruel answers of ill-intent that counters your inquiry? Seek for the qualities of peace, meekness, and gentleness within this world, will you be redirected to find conflict, harshness, and attitudes of superiority instead? Knock on the door to expect openness to joy, goodness, and faith. Will that doorway be slammed through attitudes of pessimism, evilness, and hopelessness?  Even so, the divine presence within us will continue to cause the spiritual fruit to blossom through patience and self-control as we persevere in goodness.

SUMMARY
Some people want to deny us the ability to receive from, find, or open to the divine inward goodness. Their angry and pessimistic responses attest to their opposition to questioners, seekers, and knockers. They refuse to engage in mutual exchanges that would benefit those who inquire, want to find, or desire openness about the inward divinity. Their intent is to block those who ask, seek, or knock concerning the producer of spiritual fruit.    

Reservoirs of people exist who refuse to answer your questions of goodwill. They neglect to help you find what you are looking for, and slam the doors you want open. The attitudes that exit from them perpetuate a total blockade of the divine spiritual fruit. Those attitudes transfer through people who have unfruitful, embarrassing, or anti-social behaviors closed within their hardened being. They feel insecure, threatened, or agitated, when people ask, seek, and knock.

The attitude of blocking those who inquire about divine issues enters us through the feelings we have about our worth. We do not want to be humiliated, jeopardized, or otherwise crushed in our egos through inquiries. For avoiding being devalued as a person, by the opinions of others, we discourage the spirit of goodness in those who ask, seek, and knock. In fact, some become rude, pessimistic, hateful, and cruel to those who delve into the area of the inward divinity. That is where spiritual fruit germinates. In doing that, we begin to form friendships, and social unions, with those who block inner fruitfulness.

People who are susceptible to blocking inquiries made through divine intent are those who feel they have something to hide. They might have health issues, feel insecure about various topics, or fear losing social acceptance. They also might feel less worth, or just don’t know how to express themselves. They do not respond from the softness within. Instead, they become hardened, and utilize hostilities to combat those who ask, seek, and knock. Their intentions are to do good, but they allow the pessimism of others to judge their goodness. They do that instead of depending on the blossoms of the fruit of the spirit to be their justifier.

We can interrupt the cycle of blocking those who ask, seek, or knock relating to the inner Deity, the producer of spiritual fruit. That is done through the soft, moist, and tender qualities from which the spirit’s fruit flow. When others ask, we should answer in a way that helps them to receive from the spirit of goodness. For those who seek, our desire should be for them to find goodwill in their endeavors. When others knock, we should open to them the source from where divine qualities exist.

We can assess that we should ask, seek, and knock concerning the divine presence of our soul. In return, our inner being will open where we find and receive the rewards of the spiritual fruit. The diagnosis is that some people want to block the questions, searches, and knocking that reveals the divinity within us. Even then, we plan to make the necessary inquiries to guide us in the direction of fruitfulness. We implement that plan by asking, seeking, and knocking from the soft tenderness of our inward being. The intent is to discover openness, where we find and receive according to the direction of the spiritual fruit. We can evaluate how we are doing through the fruit of the spirit. As the fruit of goodwill, kindness, meekness, gentleness, joy, goodness, patience, and self-control blossom, we have found the subject of our inquiry.
