Devotional Luke 11:8-10 – Bible Study, commentary – To the one who knocks, it will be opened – Day 251

I tell you, even if he (the neighbor) will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his bold persistence, he will get up and give him as much as he needs. I tell you, keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep seeking, and you will find. Keep knocking, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives. The one who seeks finds. And to the one who knocks, it will be opened. (Luke 11:8-10)

When my daughter was a ranger at Myakka State Park, someone dropped off an unwanted dog, and she adopted it. I assumed Mya was trained when I let her out to pee, but she ran away. While praying, it took an hour of seeking before our search team found and apprehended her.  

When we seek Jesus, we discover who He is. When we find Him, we believe and knock on His door. He promises to open it, and He does. He adopts us, so we are His children. With bold persistence, we ask for what we need to follow Him, and He gives us more than we can ask or imagine. Midnight comes, our darkest hour, and we knock frantically, not wanting to be alone. As promised, He opens His door willingly, happily.

Dearest Father in Heaven, thank you for your open-door policy. You’re always present when I need you. As I seek Your will, in the name of Jesus, give me Your power and everything I need to follow you. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

  1. When others disappoint us, Jesus is always there for us. When we are in our darkest hour, Jesus is always there for us. We just have to remember pray and trust in Him. Humans disappoint because there is not perfection in any human being.
