Seek and Find!
It would be hard to estimate the number of Christians who pray for a needed item, and after a time of waiting, conclude that God did not give it to them. This conclusion is not always the case since the Scripture states, “For everyone that asketh receiveth” (Matthew 7:8).
The problem may not be God’s failure to give, but it may be our failure to seek and find what He gave: “He that seeketh findeth.” The sequence of giving, seeking, and finding is illustrated in the world of nature. God states that He feeds the fowls of the air and the beasts of the field. (See Matthew 6:26.) However, He does not spread out their food each day but rather provides it in such a way that they must seek it out.
