Jan 6 – Questioning God

Is it okay to question God?  Are we not suppose to have blind faith?

But Abram said,
“O Sovereign Lord, what can You give me … ?      –Genesis 15:2 (NIV)
 
So Jacob was left alone,
and a man wrestled with him till daybreak.      –Genesis 32:24 (NIV)
 
… Moses said to God, “Who am I  … ?”      –Exodus 3: 11 (ESV)
 
… King David went in and sat before the LORD …,
“Who am I, O Lord GOD … ? –2 Samuel 7:18 (ESV)
 
And Mary said to the angel,
“How will this be, since I am a virgin?”          –Luke 1:34 (ESV)

Blind faith does not mean undiscerning or unquestioning faith.  Questions are good.  They allow us to converse with God.  He wants us to speak of what we fear as much as of what we love.

All of us are given tasks at some point in our lives where we cannot believe God has the calling right.  Have you ever said, “I’m not qualified to do that”?  God uses these times of struggle to grow us, to stretch us, to get us off the comfortable (easy) life and onto the straight (and sometimes challenging) path.

So, is it okay to question God?  Yes.  Question Him in a way to seek and He will provide the answers, in His time.  Question Him in a way that you accept the answer given and you will grow and be a blessing.  Question Him in a way to let Him know you care, and you will feel His love as He takes every step with you.

Holy Father, thank you for allowing me to question You.  Let me remember to take your answers and grow from them.

After a time of rest, it's time to resurrect this blog with a light on prayer and building our own personal prayer garden. A woman of faith, I want to share my personal insights into God and the Gospel in the hopes that these touch another heart, encouraging them to come to Christ.

One thought on “Jan 6 – Questioning God”

  1. As I think I’ve heard put by Graham Cooke and othersmany times, God just absoulutely adores us! I suspect He wants us to question Him and passionately seek Him in return. There is that passage in Proverbs: “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter” He wants us to question; seek Him and continually fall in Love with Him. Thank you Lord for being such an open and gracious Father!
