Luke 11: 9-10
11:9. "So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
11:10 "For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

= ask, seek, and knock. They are the sequential attitudes of praying.

ASK
John 15: 7
15:7. "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

The requirement of asking is the Word of God in our heart, and the prayer will be answered by God.
The Lord will answer the prayer which is according to His will.

We are often wrong through considering all things good although they are not in line with the will of God. Satan is also able to perform such thing and not God who answers the prayer because it is not in line with His will.

SEEK
It refers to why the Lord has not answered our prayer.
We have to check the altar, the incense, and the offering as well as the fire when God has not answered our prayer.
Our lives are the altar.
There are two kinds of altar in tabernacle as follows:
  • Altar of Burnt Offering(https://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_the+altar+of+burnt+offerings.html), animal offering is burnt.
    Now it refers to burning the works of flesh.
  • Golden Altar of Incense(https://www.gptkk.org/tabernacle_the+golden+altar+of+incense.html), incense is burnt.
    Now it refers to burning the will and the characteristics of flesh.

    Matthew 5: 21-22, 27-28
    5:21. "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.'
    5:22 "But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, 'Raca!' shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, 'You fool!' shall be in danger of hell fire.
    5:27 "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not commit adultery.'
    5:28 "But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.


    Verse 21= the works of flesh.
    Verse 22= the characteristics of flesh, i.e. getting angry without any cause or without love until there is emotion and hatred.
    Verse 27= the sinful works.
    Verse 28= the characteristic and the will of flesh inside us that must be burnt also.
We must seek the fire which whom we pray, whether with the fire of emotion or with the one from Holy Spirit. The right one is, we pray with the fire of Holy Spiritso we can be patient in our praying until all the incense is burnt.

Exodus 20: 24-26
20:24. 'An altar of earthyou shall make for Me, and you shall sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your oxen. In every place where I record My name I will come to you, and I will bless you.
20:25 'And if you make Me
an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stone; for if you use your tool on it, you have profaned it.
20:26 'Nor shall you go up by steps to My altar, that your nakedness may not be exposed on it.


There are three kinds of altar as follows:
  1. The altar of earth which is full of weaknesses,
  2. The altar of stone which is hard-hearted,
  3. Going up by steps to the altar= arrogance.
Thus, the right attitude is as the clay (the altar of earth) that we humble ourselves, confess that we are unworthy, do not insist anything but come to God just the way we are.

KNOCK
Coming to God with humbling ourselves, we are knocking His heart and the door of His mercy is opened for us. As a result, many miracles will happen.

Mark 1: 40-42
1:40. Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, "If You are willing, You can make me clean."
1:41 Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, "I am willing; be cleansed."
1:42 As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.


The Lord stretched His merciful hand to the leper and he was healed.
Whatever impossible about disease in our body, marriage, economy, or other else can be made possible by God.
He is able to heal all things.

God blesses you.
