9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?
12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
who was He talking too when he said those words?
Was Jesus talking to the multitude, to all the people?
No, Jesus was taking to His disciples, that was His promise to all His disciples and how can we be like Jesus disciples? ...
Jesus said "deny yourself and follow me". Now how will you deny yourself? Don't ask for yourself only, not for your own well fare. The Lord will be with you if you find, if you forsake Him, you will be forsaken. God is looking for man who's heart is for Him and He will blessed him fruitfully to become powerful.
