Luke 11:9-13: Seek and you will find
“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; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Of if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
Jesus tells us that prayer requires a seeking heart. When we make the effort to get in touch with God, he rewards us. The most famous quote from this passage is “seek and you will find.” This passage has often been misread to conclude that that God will give us exactly what we want at the time we want it. Instead it says something much more amazing and astonishing. When we seek God in prayer, we are always rewarded. And the most amazing reward is the gift of God’s Holy Spirit to be our helper and our guide during whatever situations we find ourselves in during our lives.
