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. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 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 11:9-13 NKJV
God is our Heavenly Father. His love for us is perfect in every way!
Imperfect relationships with our earthly fathers can distort our view of our Heavenly Father. If you have sinned against your father humble yourself. Ask him to forgive you. If your father has sinned against you pray for him. Forgive him just as your Heavenly Father forgives you!
God wants us to bring everything to Him in prayer. The Lord knows our needs better than we do. Our Heavenly Father promised to meet our needs. God keeps His promises!
God will grant forgiveness and eternal life to people who ask. People who seek God will find Him. People who knock on the doorway of heaven will be received with joy and thanksgiving on the day our Heavenly Father’s love is fully revealed!
God wants to give us gifts only He can give us. Our Heavenly Father wants to transform us with His love. He wants to replace our hard unforgiving hearts with soft loving hearts!
God wants us to love Him with all of our hearts, with all of our souls and with all of our strength. He wants us to share His love with people who do not know Him. God wants us to be so filled and consumed with His love it overflows and reaches people who need to know how much Jesus loves them.
How will God soften our hearts? How can we be so consumed by the love of God it overflows into the lives of other people?
We can impact other people by being filled with the Spirit of God. We can surrender our will to Jesus so He can form the life of Christ in us and live out His life through us.
God can use us to reach the lost the lonely and the brokenhearted with His love!
Never stop asking of God even if it seems He is not listening. You will receive the longing of your heart. Seek the Lord even in times of trial and hardship. You will see Him high and lifted up. Keep knocking on the doorway of heaven. Jesus will invite you in!
There will come a day when the love of God shines so bright the darkness will hide. Ask for your friends and family to join you in His eternal kingdom. Seek the righteousness of God today. The Father of lights has good gifts for His children!
Do not be deceived. Jesus is the doorway that leads to the Kingdom of God!
