And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. Luke 11:9 NLT
Are we to ask for whatever we want? Is this verse talking about material things or spiritual?
As I am writing this, my dog came over and barked at me. He has a way of telling me when he wants to eat. He licks his lips to tell me he is hungry. I had already given him his dry food and his pumpkin. He is ready for his treat of cut-up raw carrots to put in his food toy. God understands us and knows our needs. We need to know our spiritual needs to know what to ask for.
