Bible Verse of the Week-Luke 11:9

"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." Luke 11:9
If you do not ask, you will not be given anything. If you do not seek for something, you will not find anything. If you do not knock, what door would open? I read this verse as spiritual asking, seeking, and knocking. It is a promise that anything we ask of God (there are some limitations to "anything") He will give us. When we seek Him, His Word, or His guidance, we will find it. And when we knock on His door, it will be opened to us. Of course, on the flip side of the latter analogy, Jesus knocks on our doors; if we hear and open the door, He will come in. This verse is Jesus's comforting promise in which we should hope in and remember. If nothing else, we, as Christians, will always be received when we come to the Lord. ~Jesselyn

Great Bible verse and commentary! Thanks for posting this. Such a great promise, and one we should always remember when we think something is impossible.

I also wanted to say that I really love the length of the Bible verse of the week. It's easy to read, and a nice encouragement, but not too long.

Keep up the good work! :)

I really appreciate the feedback! With God's help, I will keep all of the devotionals at a shorter length and easy to read.
