A.S.K. Day One.

Good morning. I believe our loving Father God loves to hear and answer our prayers. So much so, that in many instances throughout the Bible God invites us to ask Him for certain things! Though He never promises to answer every one of them, for some things we ask for which we believe may be good for us, He knows they are not! Nevertheless, let us respond to His invitations to ASK!

Today I want to look at Luke 11:9 ‘Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened for you’. It first hit me quite a few years ago, and I am sure I am not the only one who has noticed this; but if you take the first letter of each of these phrases, it spells out something quite amazing! Watch! Ask, Seek, and Knock! It spells ASK! Now I don’t know if it does this in any other language, and let’s be honest, why put a K for the word Knock and make it silent? Why not just ‘nock?’ Whatever the reason, it amazes me that in the most used language in the world, we get this double emphasis to ASK!

Could I just be over imaginitive, or could it be that our loving, gracious and generous Father in heaven needs to spell out to the -self-reliant, ‘we don’t need any help from God’, all-sufficient West and English speaking nations- “Hey, I Am here, if you could just stop for a moment and pray and ASK for my help, then I will answer you!” Or am I being over simplistic?

So, let’s ASK! Heavenly Father God. I come to you today as a human father of a wonderful son. If he asks me for something, generally, I will give it to him unless it was something harmful, like Jesus spells out in these passages on prayer. If I a fallen, human father would give good things to my son if he ASKS, how much more will you our All-powerful and loving Creator God give good gifts to us and the Holy Spirit IF WE ASK! So Father I ASK for……………….. I receive it with thanks, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Let's make a start. I am a Christian but I guess that's pretty obvious. I am a gardener, builder by trade. I live in the Black country. I love 50s 60s 70s and 80s music. I play guitar and sing. I do open mic nights, I love growing veg and flowers, but I don't eat the flowers. Well I eat cauliflowers but that's not the same. If you need a good Gardener/bricklayer/landscaper and plasterer, not all in one go of course then contact me. My business is Dedicated In Gardens or D.I.G. Do you get it! Or do you dig it? johnkarlw@gmail.com
