Discovering The Jewish Jesus

Just Ask

If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?
—Luke 11:13

Today’s passage reveals three key truths that every follower of Yeshua must know and receive to experience real intimacy with the Father.

First, the fact that Jesus said “you, being evil” when speaking to His followers tells us that even we as believers in Yeshua struggle with evil within us. Paul said, “In my flesh dwelleth no good thing” (Rom. 7:18, kjv). But we also have goodness and beauty in us because we’re created in God’s image. That’s why we see human beings do loving, kind, and compassionate things. Although we still struggle with evil as believers and have to overcome it, we’re forgiven and being cleansed through the blood of Yeshua and the working of the Spirit and Word of God.

The second truth we must believe is that God wants to give us good gifts. Earthly parents who love their children want to bless them, and God is no different. Psalm 84:11 says, “No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” Believe the Father wants to bless you.

This brings us to the third point. Jesus said Father would give good gifts to those who ask. Frequently great things don’t just randomly fall on people from above. People often receive God’s gifts because they ask. James 4:2 says, “You do not have because you do not ask.” So, beloved, ask Him to strengthen you in His peace and love. Ask Him to change your mind when your thoughts are off base. Ask Him to work in your life so you can experience Him in a more real way and enjoy His presence more thoroughly. If you ask Him for anything according to His will, He will do it. The Father gives good gifts to those who ask, and as Yeshua said, everyone who asks receives (Luke 11:10).

Father God, You are a good Father who gives good gifts to Your children. I believe that You answer my prayers, and I love You, Father.
