“So I say to you, 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, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 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 (CSB)
There is a childlikeness in this passage that we often lose sight of as grown-ups who understand that God is not a genie, nor a vending machine. He isn’t either of those things, and yet, the invitation is here for us to ask for and seek in prayer the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 5:18 tells us that we are to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and this is what is offered to us today: ask, seek, and knock because your Father is a good, good Father, and He will give you the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Ask, seek, and knock because your Father is a good, good Father, and He will give you the Counselor, your Advocate, the Holy Spirit. Click To Tweet
