The strength of “ask, seek, knock” is relationship.

It is not argument. I will not gain more by being better skilled in rhetoric. I cannot even improve my relationship. All I can improve on in the situation is deciding to stand in the place He has opened for me:

Therefore, since we have been declared righteous by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Also through Him, we have obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.                                           (Romans 5:1-2 Holman Christian Standard Bible ®©)
