You can use something like this:
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim objTB As TextBox

        objTB = FindControl("TextBox1")
        If Not (objTB Is Nothing) Then
            objTB.Text = "Surpise!"
        Else
            MessageBox.Show("Control not found!")
        End If
    End Sub

    Function FindControl(ByVal pName As String) As Control
        For Each x As Control In Me.Controls
            If x.Name.ToUpper = pName.ToUpper Then
                Return x
            End If
        Next
    End Function

Maybe this way,

Dim oControl As Control
   For Each oControl In Me.Controls
     If oControl.Name = "TextBox1" Then
        Exit For
     End If
Next

' oControl is the control that you searching
MsgBox(oControl.Text)
