I need a find command that runs under log directory and should list the file name and then content of the file name which I am searching for

Example:
find . -type f -print -exec grep -inH “SBL-1234” {} \; >/apps/a.txt  isnt giving the correct output

I want a find command which should search for SBL-1234  in all the logs and then list the filename and then the "SBL-1234" of the filename to a.txt only then it should go to the next log file get the log name and the "SBL-1234"  in that log

... and if you don't like the colon between the filename and the content:

cd /log/directory
for file in *.log
  do
     RESULT=$(grep -iH “SBL-1234” $file 2>/dev/null)
       if [[ ! -z $RESULT ]]; then
           echo $file $RESULT
       fi
  done > /apps/a.txt
