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

    HI THIS IS TYLER'S MOTHER (I PRONOUNCE IT TYLA (TIE-LA) BECAUSE I DON'T REALLY LIKE THE NAME. I NAMED HIM EMMETT FOR A REASON. WHEN HE CHANGED HIS NAME, IT BROKE MY HEART BECAUSE I WASN'T THERE FOR HIM WHEN HIS FATHER BEAT HIM AND RAPED HIM. HE WAS MOLESTED WHILE I GOT MY HAIR AND NAILS DONE. AND SO NOW THAT I KNOW HE IS HURTING OTHER PEOPLE IT'S MY FAULT FIRST. I'M WRITING FROM THE GRAVE, CAUSE I CAN STILL SEE EVERYTHING WITH ONE MY ONE GOOD EYE. AND IF I COULD, I WOULD WALK TO MY SON AND SAY SORRY, BUT I ONLY HAVE ONE FOOT. I WILL NEVER SEE HIS CHILDREN. IF HE HAS ANY. CAUSE BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I THINK MY DEAR AND LOVING SON, MAY HAVE WANTED TO BE A GIRL. HE HAS A LITTLE SUGA IN HIS TANK. IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. HE HAS A LITTLE SWING IN HIS PLAYGROUND IF YOU CATCH MY DRIFT. HE HAS LITTLE FRUITY IN HIS TOOTIE. AND I KNOW YOU ALL DON'T KNOW HIM LIKE THAT, AND I HOPE YOU WOULD KNOW THAT HE TRIES TO DO BETTER IN HIS LIFE, BUT HE CAN'T HELP IF HE'S GAY. ONE OF HIS FRIENDS BEFORE I DIED TOLD ME THEY HAD SEX TOGETHER AND YES IT WAS A MAN. I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY WILL DO THAT IF THEY BOTH HAVE THE SAME PRIVATE PARTS, WHAT CAN THEY DO TO PLEASE EACH OTHER. I WILL ALWAYS THINK ABOUT MY LIFE AND HOW I SUFFERED BEFORE I DIED. HOW HE GAVE ME MONEY ALL THOSE YEARS INSTEAD OF LOVE AND ATTENTION PEOPLE WHO COULD HELP ME LEAVE LONGER. PLEASE LOOK AFTER MY SON. DON'T PLAN ANYTHING LIKE STALKING HIM TO TAKE HIS LIFE, OR BLOWING UP HIS MANSION OR TOUR BUS, OR PRIVATE JET, OR HOME IN THE BAHAMAS AND IN LONDON. HE ALSO HAS ONE IN CALIFORNIA. HE PUTS THIS INFORMATION OUT, I'M NOT SURE IF HE REALLY DO WANTS TO BE SAFE. IF HE TELL YALL ALL HIS BUSINESS. I KNOW HE WAS HAVING SEX WITH THAT MODEL GIRL HE SHOWED ME TO BEFORE I DIED, NAMED GELILA BEKELE. SHE WAS TOO YOUNG FOR HIS OLD D*** ASS. I TOLD HIM THEY WAS GONNA PUT HIM IN JAIL FOR STATUTORY RAPE. BUT HE DON'T LIKE TO LISTEN TO ME. SO I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HIM ANYMORE BECAUSE MY LIFE IS OVER. I'M IN THE GRAVE, I'M DEAD. I DIED. I'M DECEASED. I'M NOT LIVING ANYMORE, I SUFFERED AND I'M GONE.. I'M AT MY FINAL DESTINATION. I WAS WORRIED ABOUT SOMEONE STALKING HIM. FOLLOWING HIM, HARASSING HIM. BUT WHEN I FOUND OUT WHO DO THAT TO OTHER PEOPLE, I THINK IT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED THE RIGHT WAY. MY SON HAS SO MUCH TO LEARN AND HE IS ABOUT TO BE 44 YEATS OLD THIS YEAR. HE NOT MARRIED, AND WILL NOT BE AS FAR AS I KNOW. AT LEAST NOT TO A WOMAN. SO IF YOU THINK YOU WANT TO BE WITH HIM GIVE HIM A STALK. BELOW IS THE CONTACT INFORMATION TO TYLER PERRY STUDIOS. Tyler Perry Studios 404- CALL MONDAY- FRIDAY ONLY (DOES NOT HAVE A PROFESSIONAL VOICE ANSWERING SYSTEM) 3300 Continental Colony PKWY SW ATLANTA. GEORGIA 30331

      How can this be Tyler's mom when she passed away in December of 2009 and writing from his Atlanta Georgia mansion no less, but to use his deceased moms name to say this was really sad! His life is his business like ever body else is theirs no ones perfect and what ever wrongs he may have in his life I pray that he addresses them before long like I myself am trying to address any that I have, because I'm sure no one wants to loose their soul especially when they've been through a h*** already here on earth!

    • Hi Momma Perry #1876642

      STOP PUTTING TYLER'S BUSINESS OUT THERE LIKE THAT. WE ALL HAVE A PAST AND DID SOME THINGS. WHAT'S DONE IS DONE!!! I KNOW I DID SOME THINGS TOO. BUT BONES DON'T TALK PEOPLE DO. SO LET THE BONES LIE WHERE THEY MAY. IF YOU WANT TO TELL SOMETHING. TELL US ABOUT YOU! TELL US ABOUT THE MOTHER WHO BIRTHED THE SEXY TYLER PERRY. WHAT TYPE OF CHILDHOOD DID YOU HAVE? WHAT WHERE YOUR EXPERIENCES? WHO TAUGHT YOU YOUR DEFINTION OF LOVE AS A CHILD? SHARE YOU FEELINGS, WISDOM AND INSITE ON WHAT YOU LEARNED IN THIS LIFE? MOMMA, IMMA CALL HIM. I CALLED BEFORE AND YOU'RE RIGHT THERE'S NO AUTOMATED ANSWERING SYSTEM..YOU KNOW OF ALL THAT HAPPENED TO HIM WHILE HE WAS GROWING UP, YOU KNEW. YOU KNEW HE WAS BEING MO LESTED AND YOU DIDN'T DO ANYTHING. YET HE TRIED TO MAKE YOU COMFORTABLE WHILE YOU SUFFERED. HE COULD HAVE LET YOU SUFFER AT YOU OWN EXPENSE. BUT IT WOULDN'T HAVE LOOKED RIGHT AWAY TO LET YOU SUFFER, HE DID THE RIGHT THING. I WONDER IF HE ENJOYED WATCHING YOU DIE AS YOU ENJOYED WATCHING HIM SUFFER AS A CHILD. DID YOU LIKE WATCHING YOU CHILDREN SUFFER OR WERE YOU THINKING OF YOUR OWN WELL BEING? I'M JUST WONDERING, NO DISRESPECT. BUT THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING HIM TO MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. THAT'S THE BEST THING ANY MOTHER OR PERSON CAN DO FOR ANOTHER SOUL. WHEN IM LED TO CALL HE BETTER BE AVAILABE!!

    Thanks Mr Tyler for this inspirational message you've shared, it makes so much sense, God asks questions he already knows answers to. Just the right time for me to read this, i needed to understand why God asks questions and its for us to understand, it actually got to me. Thank you, much love to you and God bless.

    Amen!!! tell your friends, # 1 make sure GOD is LORD over their life. This way it wont be hard to put everything you shared with them into action. And when GOD began to share with them, through His word ( BIBLE) who He is, beleiving him and acting it out will become a natural thing. And life situation becomes lesson learned. Only to get you to where God Purpose for you too be. He uses them (Life Situation)to get our attention and redirect our steps to his purpose and to people, he himself has design to help. This is where You come in Tyler > # 2 Tell them I said, that they are Blessed to have such an compassionte, caring man who not only believe in our God, Lord, and Saviour but who will take out the time out of a busy day and I know ya busy, to share the word to encourage them. Thats God sent. : ) Bless you always Tyler. Can't wait for your next youtube auditions hint, hint Im not giving up on my dreams. My Heart An My Mind is the place where my dreams believe. #Go have and #Awesome day.

    This really resonates, because God recently ask me this--"How will you respond to having Type 2 Diabetes, Miss Thing?" So my answer was I will do the things I should have been doing all along with this body you gave me: I will eat healthier, I will exercise, I will get more rest, and I will pray for your assistance--which I know I will get...so because God gave me my sense of humor and He loves a good laugh, I ask Him "So how it is that this is a challenge? This is a life sentence!" Yeah, He laughed at that...
