“If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” (Luke 11:13)
The Lord asks us to consider how small our prayers are. Are we limited in our thinking concerning what God will provide for us? Our prayers may be filled with the mundane and a focus on our day to day needs when our Father wants us to have so much more. To be filled with the Spirit satisfies so many of our needs and yet we fail to seek Him out. Not only will the presence of the Spirit change us as people, but He will also mature and expand our prayer life. It is through the guidance of the indwelling Spirit that we truly learn to pray the prayers of Heaven instead of dwelling in the smallness of the earth.
