So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Luke 11:9
This is a scripture that is often confused or twisted, people want to use this as trying to make God your “personal genie”, but this scripture has a lot deeper meaning than our superficial interpretation. Remember its God will be done not our will. Are your prayer requests aligned with the will of God?
Are you seeking God? Trying to understand his diving nature, trying to get closer to him as our Heavenly Father? Are you trying to deepen your personal relationship with your Lord and Savior? Are you seeking Truth? Do you ask God to reveal truth to you?
These are the things we should be praying for, not temporary personal wealth or objects. We should be seeking God to fill us with the Holy Spirit to truly understand and comprehend his nature
For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened. Luke 11:10
Who can ask and pray to God for wisdom and understanding? Who can come before The Lord and ask for forgiveness of our sins? The Bible says Everyone, you don’t need a priest or a pastor to mediate for you, get down on your knees and talk to your Heavenly Father!
“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?” Luke 11:13
So when you read the entire Chapter in context , you see God will send you the Holy Spirit to all those who ask! This is what we should be seeking! Keep seeking God and asking for his wisdom and understanding! Knock and the door (Jesus Christ) will be opened Amen!
