"Ask, Seek, Find"

“Ask, Seek, Find”

Blessings Folk!

Today’s reading:
Matthew 7:7-11
Luke 11:9-13
John 16:24


Do you ask?
Do you seek?
Do you find?

What is Jesus speaking about here?

He is speaking of the good gifts that Father desires to release upon those who ask, seek and find.

But, careful now.

Immediately our minds usually rush toward material things.

That is not necessarily wrong.

We see bread and fish mentioned.
We are to ask and seek related to daily provision.

If we, being evil, give good things to our children, how much more will Father give to us!

But remember a couple of things…

Do not seek from a fleshly perspective…

James 4:2-4
New English Translation (NET)
2 You desire and you do not have; you murder and envy and you cannot obtain; you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask;
3 you ask and do not receive because you ask wrongly, so you can spend it on your passions.

Do not ask to spend on your passions.

Then, look again at Luke 11:13…”how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”

Do you have the Holy Spirit?
