SEEK AND FIND
9 And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.10 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.11 What father among you, if his son asks fort a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent;12 or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” – Luke 11:9-13
This passage is directly after Jesus gives the model prayer. We see that given to disciples at their request. Likewise Jesus is asking us here to do what?
Verses 11-13 give us a picture of what? What is God telling us that He desires to give us (verse 13)?
Jesus is essentially telling us here that when we seek Him we will find Him, when we ask he gives and when we knock He will answer. What are you seeking, asking, and knocking for?
These thoughts and prayers are just a guide to get you started in your conversation with God. Think of them as conversation starters rather than a check list to quickly pray.
Jesus rewards us for our boldness in our prayers. His children that desire to know Him are seeking Him greater and greater.
Ask God that your heart may desire more of Him, that you will never be satisfied with Him, and that you will always desire to know Him more.
Pray that you will be diligent to seek God boldly as you learn what it means to really ask, seek, and knock
Take a few moments and sit down and think about what would you do for God if you could not fail, write that down and put it somewhere you won’t lose it.
