S – “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened

 Luke 11:9–10 CSB

O –  The word “Ask” (αἰτεῖτε). The word for the asking of an inferior.  Christ never uses the word of his own asking from the Father, but always ἐρωτῶ as asking on equal terms.  Jesus continues to speak messages with multiple meanings.  He establishes the desire of God for his children to ask Him in need. He is also showing their inferiority to God.  In other scriptures, he asks as an “equal” affirming His relationship with God.

A – I need to remain humble before God not because I am small and lowly.  Instead, it is recognizing how big and loving He is. This should cause me to ask what is on my heart, seek His purpose in it and boldly (relationship) move forward with confidence.

R – Lord, help me to do this.
