It is just our human nature to be inquisitive. We ask questions to get answers, of course. We want better understanding, and clarity on those things that has us perplexed. By doing so we develop our thinking.
The beginning of the week I asked my husband a ‘why’ question which lead me on a quest to find the answer in my Bible.
It really didn’t take long before I was lead to scripture that I’ve read many times before, but this time it shined a different perspective for me. Which only lead me to ask “why” again. I was like a young child endlessly asking her father (God) ‘why?’
That’s when Papa God dropped this thought in my heart: “Georgia I love when you ask me why.”
My thoughts responded back; “I guess it isn’t like when my children were young. They asked ‘why’ questions all the time, and it would annoy me. I often stopped the endless cycle of ‘why’ by saying: “Because I am Mom that is why,” or “Because that is the way it is, that is why.”
Papa then said: “This is exactly the reason my people are afraid to ask me ‘why’ questions. They think I am going to get annoyed and say; ‘Because I am God that is why.’ I want my children to have understanding and to develop their faith.”
This made me smile to think that Father God likes my questions.
Luke 10:28 (NIV) … (Jesus) said, I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.
May I encourage us all, even though we believe we may possess full knowledge let’s not quit asking questions. Our Father in heaven likes it when we are like “children” full of curiosity that leads us to seek. So, go ahead and ask, and see what things Father God reveals to you.
