I came across this quote today:
“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”—Albert Einstein
You know, it’s not wrong to ask God questions.
I never “question God” but I always ask Him questions. ?✨
I do it all the time. I ask Him all kinds of things.
I’ll often “wonder” with God, “wondering” about things before Him, communing with Him—ultimately seeking Him far beyond the subject of my “questions”….
I have to be careful to never “demand” an answer, or think I “deserve” one.
Because I know, and because I’ve learned, that He’s faithful to reveal things in just the right way, and in just the right time. He’s shown me this time and time again.
I know that He’s faithful to show me what I need to know, what I need to be aware of… to shine His light into the situation. And if it’s not a good situation, He’s faithful to reveal all the dark and cob-webbed corners, when it’s the right time to sweep them clean.
He knows all things. He knows all answers. He even understands why we do all the things we do… the complexity of our ways and our minds and our thought processes. He’s aware of the ‘why’, and He knows how we tick, through and through.
I feel as though we need so much wisdom and discernment in order to live through these times that we’re suddenly finding ourselves living in.
We need wisdom, and we need a strong internal indicator from the Word being part of us, a conscience from the Holy Spirit to help us in what’s “right” and what’s “wrong” and what’s truth and what’s not, because that “line” has become blurred in this world, and many have lost sight of the truth and the way.
But look at what Jesus has done for us…
“It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God: our righteousness, holiness, and redemption.” —1 Corinthians 1:30
Wow! And we are invited to ask Him for wisdom. He wants us to ask Him for wisdom and discernment!
“Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” —James 1:5
“However, when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak what He hears, and He will declare to you what is to come.” —John 16:13
“The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him–a Spirit of wisdom and understanding, a Spirit of counsel and strength, a Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.” —Isaiah 11:2
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!” —Psalm 111:10
“And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment…” —Philippians 1:9
“…in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” —Colossians 2:3
“Hidden” for us to get to seek out and find in Him. ?
Thank You, Lord. Thank You that when we seek YOU, we’ll find all that we could ever need right there. ?☀️
