This morning as the rain fell, I was awaken by the cries and meows of a cat. Cries that seems to be desperate. Being the owner of two felines, I thought it best to see if the retorter was one of mine. So I began a fruitless search. I opened every door in the house to see if he was trapped in a room. I opened every outside door, and even took a little stroll in the rain looking for the kitties to no avail. Finally, I returned to the garage where I has previous discovered one of the cats up on his perch and upon opening the door again the undiscovered kitty showed himself – unharmed.
Who knows which cat was making noise before the crack of down this morning, but while I was searching around, I thought about someother searching that goes on in our lives ( you didn’t see that one coming did you!) Sometimes, we are out searching around, when the thing we are searching for is standing right at the door.
20lo, I have stood at the door, and I knock; if any one may hear my voice, and may open the door, I will come in unto him, and will sup with him, and he with me. (Revelation 3:20, Young’s Literal Translation)
What is crazy about our search for spiriutaly safety is that the savior stands at the door, and waits, and he is not hard to find. Definitely not as hard to find a exclusive kitty.
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7-9 (New International Version, ©2010)
If you are searching today, just remember the promise that you will find Him.
