Matthew 7:7-8

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

These words of Jesus can be confounding because we can all think of things we may have asked God for and did not receive.

But I think there is a deeper truth here.

God is not in some distant place where we need to call out and hope we get heard.

God is here.

As St. Paul said, in God we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).

God is as close to us as our breath.

Ruah.

That’s the Hebrew word for breath, air, wind, as well as spirit.

Our Loving Source is in the air we breathe.

What is your spirit, your soul, longing for?

This is not something superficial like, “I want a candy bar.”

When you sit in silent prayer, in meditation such as Centering Prayer, when you are one with your breathing, what is it that you want?

God, like a loving parent, might not guide you to what you want, but will definitely guide you to what you need.

If you are attentive to the Spirit’s movement.

When you are in tune with your inner voice, with your true self, the desires of your heart will rise.

Then you will be invited to take a step out of your comfort zone and go where the Spirit leads you.

Breathe deeply.

You are being led to wholeness.

With each step you are receiving and you are finding.

Expect a door to be opened.
