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,

    Amen! Tyler your message is outstanding; and represented an auspicious event for me, today! The power of "knee-mail" is AMAZING because God is AMAZING. With the presence of some serious health stuff going on, subsequently, I decided to implement "G-O-D-S-P-L-A-N" in accordance with eight laws of health. G - Godly trust (Genesis 2:17) O - Open air (Genesis 1:6, 7) D - Daily exercise (Genesis 2:15) S - Sunshine (Genesis 1:16) P - Proper Rest (Genesis 2:3) L - Lots of Water (Genesis 2:10) A - Always Temperate (Genesis 2:16, 17) N - Nutrition - (Genesis 1:29) With the understanding that "we" (i.e., human beings) were formed by God from the dust of the ground (Genesis 2.7 - KJV), last May, I went to a place in Tennessee called "M.E.E.T. Ministry" (i.e., meetministry.org) for 18 days. As a result, I realized the gradual reversal of the serious health stuff and my health being restored. Simply following the Owner's manual (i.e., "Holy Bible" - KJV). To God be the glory! God provides everything that we need. Dr. Jackson, M.E.E.T. Ministry says "heredity loads the gun but lifestyle pulls the trigger". Literally, much of what we need to sustain the human body can be found in the soil. So, let your food be your medicine and medicine be your food. Again, to God be the glory! Thank you for your message, Tyler, as I am overflowing with 'thankfulness'. Tyler, keep the inspirational messages coming; and, may God continue to bless you, as well.

    I always get a little twinge of excitement when I see that I have another message from you in my Inbox. Sometimes I purposely wait to open it - just to save it like one's most favorite dessert - leaving that last slice of pie in the pie dish for later - just savoring how good it will be. That's how I think of your messages - as gifts, small morsels of deliciousness. I know there will always be some kernel of truth in them for me to digest. Something that will resonate for me in that moment that I read them. Today's message was no different. I saw it in my Inbox; I waited to open it - saving it for last; I read it and got my spiritual fill. Thank you Tyler for never disappointing - you're words are like that favorite dessert: always satisfying. Stay blessed.

    You're right! NO problem is too big or small for a dead Jesus! Here we have the creator of the universe, and we think he can't solve our problem? But, sometimes God says NO. If he says no we have to accept that it wasn't right for us and truly believe he has something better for us. I'd love to be that Proverbs 31 woman for YOU. NOTHING is impossible for God right!
