11:9 #Mt 7:7|.
Lu 11:9-13 Ask, and it shall be given. See notes on Mt 7:7-11. These verses are a part of the Sermon on the Mount. It is probable that Luke, who does not give a chronological history, incorporates them here, though not the time when they were spoken. The same may be said of various utterances given by Luke.

First I must ask in accordance with His word , Then I will receive I must believe that I have already received it Then I must seek then I will find I have to search for it Knock and it shall be opened to me I must keep knocking and it is opening unto me . Praise God. I have to be willing to stand for the rest of my life if that is what it takes and I am willing. God 's word will not return unto Him void Praise God !!!!

Sandy, dear heart, please be patient remember God works everything out to His praise and glory. Also He works according to His will good pleasure, knowing the end from the beginning, what we desire may not be in accord with His plan nor His time frame for things to happen in our lives. All that being said, when you feel all hope is lost and every man 's hand is against you, I find it most helpful to turn to the book of Romans, chapter 8, it never fails to refresh my spirit. Hope these words have been of some encouragement. Stay strong in the Lord and may God richly bless you.

I have been asking over and over and over and it takes so long to receive like months and months and months will go by and sometime years and I 've been obedient. I have loved and lost and lost... and sometimes I 'm tired why must I keep waiting. is God mad at me

Love, Luke Chapter 11, Verse 9... I first heard this from my Grandparents, and Aunt Katie (Grandfathers Sister), when I was a child... It filled me with delight, that Jesus would honor my requests, through prayer, hard work & solice... Happy that today, this still rings true... God Bless Us All!
