Morning Reflection: “ASK HIM”


Good morning... Great is His faithfulness...


"Overcoming Tough Times" Devotional see video fir the reading


Chapter 10 "ASK HIM"


Luke 11:9-13

Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking

“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.10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 11 If a son asks for [a]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? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 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!”


IN GREEK: the verbs rendered ASK, SEEK, AND KNOCK are implying a continuing action and are better translated, :Keep Asking", "Keep Seeking" , & "Keep Knocking": God responds when we persistently ask for things that are good: BREAD, FISH, AND AN EGG are all images of life and symbolize the gift of THE HOLY SPIRIT- (See also- John 14:13-14; James 4:3):

“The Lord bless you and keep you;


25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,


And be gracious to you;


26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,


And give you peace.” ’
