"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; he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." (Matt 7:7,8)
Several years ago I attended a Holy Spirit conference in Las Vegas in which Heidi Baker was one of the speakers. Heidi was telling us about an experience she had with God, where she actually found herself sitting before God's throne. She had to approach the throne in a prostrate position, face down. She then invited everyone who wanted to enter the throne room to come forward. Hundreds of people ran to the front, including me.
I got down on my knees and closed my eyes. Suddenly I started feeling a hand pushing my back down. I looked around to see who was doing that, but no one was near me. Then Heidi cried "Look! Open your eyes and look, you're all in the position to enter in!" I looked around the room, and sure enough, every single person (myself included) was lying prostrate on the floor.
I thought I was going in to the throne room of God, but yet nothing happened. I was in the glory, but I didn't see God. I wept bitterly. I so desperately wanted to enter in. Later that day the pastor's wife was praying for me, and here's what she said: "You've been asking to enter God's house, and God says YES! You are welcome in His house." Now there's no way this woman knew what I had prayed for earlier that day. That was God.
The next morning in the sanctuary I went forward with hundreds of others during worship. Right then and there I had a vision. I was standing before the throne of God! God heard my cries to enter in, and He said yes.
If I hadn't heard Heidi telling us of her experience when she entered in, I never would have had the notion that this was something that could be asked for, or even something that could be attained! So now I'm sharing my experience with you. Do you want to enter in? Ask, seek and knock...and the door will be opened.
