Day 4 – The Value of Questions

Always-question

Always question1 150x150 Day 4   The Value of QuestionsI was reminded today of the value of sitting still and asking God questions. Questions about what is happening to us every day. Questions that will help us to understand more about what’s really going on as well as helping us to see what God wants us to do about it.

There’s a big difference between asking questions because you’re seeking to understand and questioning God’s actions belligerently. The difference is in the attitude of the heart.

One of the most amazing things to do is to sit quietly and have a conversation with God.

  • LORD, why is this happening? (Not asked with a pout, but out of curiosity)
  • What is really going on, beyond what I perceive with my 5 senses? (Eph 6 says that our fight is not against flesh and blood but against principalities in the heavenly realm)
  • What am I to do about it?
  • What do I pray?
  • How do I react?
  • What do I say?
  • What is my part to play in this situation?
  • What am I supposed to learn?
  • What am I to be healed from?
  • What is causing me to react this way, in these circumstances?

Just making the decision to ask these questions before we’re faced with a negative situation, will really help us to be able to rely on the Holy Spirit to help us step back from the emotion of the moment and ask the questions that will make God’s understanding of the situation clear to us. THEN, we react using His wisdom of how to bring His purposes about in the situation.

This way, we learn and grow through what we experience (James 1:2-6) “so that we may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing”

I have a long list of questions to ask and I find myself quietly excited by the healing that God’s answers will bring icon smile Day 4   The Value of Questions
