There are three instances in the Bible that talks about knocking and are applicable to our lives. The first instance is when we are standing at a door knocking, asking for something that we want God to do for us. If what we are asking for is from Him, then we must persevere and continue knocking no matter how long it takes. The second instance is when God shuts a door, such as when He shut the door of Noah’s Ark. We better be sure we’re on the boat because when God shuts a door, it’s not going to open again. Lastly, Jesus stands at the door of our heart knocking and as Christians, it is essential to let Him in and begin a relationship with Him so that He not only knows things about us but so that He knows us intimately and we know Him.
