Pocket Sized Thoughts – Prayer – Part 9

How much more will the Father give the Holy Spirit to them who ask Him.” (Luke 11:13)

The heart of God’s desire for us is that we should ask and receive the Holy Spirit. This is not an impossible request, totally out of reach. This is something that God wants all His people to have. The gift and life of the Holy Spirit is not something that is obtained casually, but is received by the persistent concentration of asking, seeking and knocking. The two previous verses talk about an earthly father giving gifts. This is to emphasise that the gift of the Holy Spirit is a gift of absolute love from the Father in heaven. God loves and longs to give this gift but only as we are in full love with Him and all other loves have ceased.

PRAYER :- “Lord, thank you for this wonderful gift. Refine my love for you that I may appreciate this gift all the more.”
