When God Asks A Question

I just wrote this to a very dear friend of mine that is going through a tough time. I thought I'd share it with you too.

When I read the bible, I love when God asks a question. He doesn't ask for Himself. He already knows the answer. He asks us because he wants us to understand and get it.

He asked Adam, "Where art thou?" Sometimes we don't realize where we are in life and it takes the voice of God to remind us.

He asked Moses, "What is that that you have in your hand?" Many times the very blessing we need is already in our grasp.

He asked Malachi, "Will a man rob God?" It's so easy to give our time to everything but the work of The Lord.

He asked Ezekiel, "Can these bones live?" Sometimes you may think a situation in your life has died, but God is reminding you that it can live. It's not dead. It's not over.

He asked a lame man, "Wilt thou be made whole?" God already knows He has the power to deliver you but you need to want to be delivered.

He asked Abraham, "Is there anything too hard for God?"

Think about that as you're going through life. I don't care what it looks like. There is nothing too hard for God to do.

Praying for you today. Your friend and brother,
Tyler

    Tyler we have to remember like 2Chronicles 7/14 If my people who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then they will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sins, and will heal thier land.

    In Philippians 4:13 I can do all things threw christ who strengthening me. I was a single parent with 3 children. By Gods grace and mercy I have a husband, but I learned that you can not lean on nobody but God. My daughter's favorite movie is Madea Christmas. Christmas is a time to worship, give, love and share thanksgiving. In the book of Nehemiah 12:8 let me break it down like this In the book of Nehemiah God wants the people to be courageous and keep on doing his work. How Nehemiah helps the poor. ( love your movies) But anyway God is our Rock. 12:8 means Jeshua= One who saves. Binnui= Build up renovate, Kadmiel= The presents of God, Sherebiah=power, Yah'has , brought heat Yah=the Lord, Judah = Praise, Mattaniah= gift from God, Hidad=to shout read it all together and what a mighty God we serve. Amen.

    I would first like to say that you are one of the most inspirational black men that I know of  My name is Tyesha T. Peak I am a 25 year old woman that has had her trials and tribulations as I am sure we all have had. I have been homeless in a time in my life and I have had the biggest dream since the age of 12 years old. I want to know and try and receive help to make this dream a reality. There are a lot of shelters in the city of Atlanta but not many that treat individuals that have come across hard times with a sense of dignity. They do provide shelter temporarily but they do not provide the means for an individual to better ones self so that the possibilities of homelessness become limited not increasing. I want to open a shelter where I can add rehab and GED and high school diplomas for those who do not have education. Also credit counseling for those who have poor credit in addition to providing employment to those who have experience in this nature of work. I am aware that you are and influetional man and also a person who has experienced a deal of heart ache your self. This has been a dream that I have been holding onto for quite some time .Any help that you could provide I would appreciate with the deepest of my soul. Thanks for even reading this.  My home phone or cell is . Thank you so much.

    If I had the $$ I would help ever one of my friends that help me, but when you are down and out you can believe it few that will still be standing and yes that is how you find out who is your friend and who is not. But I learned that God helps us some times we just have to wait on him and trust and believe in him. Your words are powerful and up lifting. I have been going through myself but I keep the faith and believe that not only famous people need help but people that are not as well. We see so much in putting up walls but when they come down what is really there, I am tring to say that when you can see your own strength that is with God. God Bless You.

    In the bible God did ask will a man rob GOD and he said that he was getting robbed with tithes and offerings. Well I am going to ask the question who is robbing me? I have one bank account that i use and someone has robbed my bank account. I pulled up my statement and my statement has charges on there that did not come from me. I mean they robbed me where I did not have one red penny in my account. I sometimes feel like America needs to go straight to hell. I have a mount moriah police station in my neighborhood and I went to them about my bank account and all they are doing is giving me the run around. I think that police officers are the real criminals. The only way they get criminals is because they are criminals themselves. I feel like some of them need to go straight to the state pen. They always want money. It is like there is no end to them giving me traffic tickets. All of mine got paid but when I went to those crooked police offiers in Memphis to ask for help about my bank account they would not help me. That whole entire system got a h*** call from me. I will never again pay a traffic ticket or be for them in any kind of way. Memphis whole entire police system can go straigt to hell. The one thing that I do know is that they cannot take GOD it is like they don't know GOD at all. Have a nice day!
