Advent Questions

We have been talking about anticipating God's arrivals in our lives the last few weeks.
However, anticipatin does not mean a passive waiting, twiddling our thumbs.

Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you.
(Matthew 7:7)

If you could ask God for any 1 thing, what would it be?
(Would it be to change others? Get things for ourself?)

What is it you seek this season?
(What does your answer to these first 2 questions say about you?)

What do you perceive to be behind the door on which you are knocking?
(Spiritual growth and depth? Physical healing? Financial help?)

What is the difference between asking and complaining?

How long might we need to seek in order to find?

May God grant us the perseverance, patience, and passion required to ask, seek and knock, and the discernment to do so wisely.

Grace & peace
