Ask, Seek, and Knock — Part 1

March 13, 2023

The command Ask, Seek and Knock reveals the depths of God’s love as our Heavenly Father towards us. He wants us to come to Him and ask! However, Jesus gives a parable in Luke 11:5-11 that unlocks an even greater dimension to this exciting command… a dimension of meeting the needs of others! 

God is a Father Who is good and does good. In commanding us to ask, seek and knock, He is not trying to dangle a carrot in front of us or make things complicated for us. It is actually an invitation to draw closer in our relationship and communion with Him. Will we respond to this invitation and pursue intimacy with Him?

  • Nate Paine, Host

    Nate Paine loves pointing people to God’s Word. After giving his life to the Lord at age 11, he has carried Isaiah 61:1–3 as his life verses, following God’s call to “preach good tidings unto the meek,” “bind up the brokenhearted,” “proclaim liberty to the captives,” and offer beauty for ashes through the Person and work of Christ. Nate completed his bachelor’s degree in Biblical Ministries, has served in prison ministry, and mentored many young men through the Journey to the Heart program. Today, he lives with his wife and four children in East Texas where he serves on staff with IBLP and the Home Discipleship Network. In his spare time, you may find Nate reading his favorite authors (Andrew Murray and A.W. Tozer), perfecting his pour-over coffee brewing, or adventuring with his children—preferably with fishing poles in hand.
