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,

    "When God Asks a Question", how should we as believers respond or does God's questions even warrant a response? In your message, all questions posed appear to come during a time of adversity, when man has sin or when all odds seem to stack up against man. And time and time again we see God deliver man; but I dare ask the question as Paul did in Corinthians 12:8. Unlike Paul, I don't take pleasure in my affirmities and I cannnot comprehend that someone in their right mind would enjoy suffering, afflictions, misery and distress more than euphoria, happiness, gladness, or just plain old peace of mind. As a believer, I have not yet ARRIVED to the point of taking pleasure in my affirmties and as "one of them" I find it hypocrital that others can say " oh, I am estatic to go thru so much pain and turmoil, cause I know that God is going to deliver me!" Even God's prophet Elijah had a breaking point (1Kings 19)!

    Tyler, I got this email message and it reminded me again who God is. I'm going through so much. This past Sunday I had my purse stolen with everything in it and here it is Tuesday and I still haven't accomplished getting anything back (drivers license, military retiree ID, etc, etc). It's a sad shame the way things run in the government whether federal or state. People don't care anything at all about you or your situation. Sometimes I wonder why I have to go through sooooo much. I've gone through one thing after another, very serious things. I'm faithful in my walk, completely faithful and I know it has to be a reason. I feel so tired sometimes and heavy, but it goes away when I think of God being my Comforter. I'm just going through right now and it makes me nervous that someone out there is doing only God knows what with my information. I can't get anything done without my drivers license and it's been a nightmare trying to accomplish this mission. Prayerfully tomorrow will go better. Pray for me to continue to be strong. Thank you for the message.

    I read this post and I didn't get it. Maybe it's because last night my daughter and I were blessed to spend the night in a hotel room in separate beds, not one in a twin and one on the floor, but separate beds in a nice room. I did not get it, maybe because once again I had to figure out how we going to get back to a state where we could sleep on somebody's something or who I could leave my daughter with to start her junior year of high school. I prayed. I took the step of faith and now we have an air mattress for her and a sofa for me to sleep on until Friday. No job, but everyone wants to interview me. So I didn't get it. I try not to complain and to be there for everyone. I hate to ask and ashamed to accept when given sometimes. GOD knows the answer, right? I'm glad HE does, because I don't the question I'm not asking nor the answer I'm seeking. #honestymoment
