Over the last several weeks we have examined Luke 11:1-4 in great detail. I pray that you will complete this study remembering four simple truths: 1) we need to seek the Lord, 2) we need to seek Him daily, 3) we need to seek Him honestly, 4) we need to seek Him with humility.
Seek the LORD while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the LORD, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6–7 (NASB95)
As we conclude our study let’s examine the last phrase in Luke 11:4, “And lead us not into temptation.” Jesus taught His disciples to ask God for help when facing trials and temptations. We are reminded in James 4:10 to “Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.” When we pray, we are to approach the Father with a heart of humility that acknowledges our need for His help, protection, and guidance.
KEY THOUGHT Seek God with humility, asking Him for help to face trials and temptations.
