And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.
When we were little children we had so many questions. Children ask the funniest, yet sometimes profound questions. As children we often ask questions about nature around us, and about life in general. Questions like, “why is the sky blue?”, or “how long do trees live?”. Our parents would give us the best possible answers, but we would then question the answer with the question “why?”. Why is the sky blue?
Can you imagine what it will be like to know every answer to every question?
We have a natural inquisitive nature that God places within us. As we grow older we begin to ask different questions; the type of questions only a God can answer. Questions like, “how did everything get here?”, or “who made me?”, or “why am I here and what is the meaning of my life?”. These are huge questions, but there are even deeper ones. Questions like “who is God?”, “what is He doing?”, “where did God come from?”. As we learn of God we begin asking questions like, “why is there so much suffering in the world?”, or “why is there a hell?”.
As for me, I have found after coming into salvation through our Savior Jesus Christ my questions to God seem to have become more personal. Questions like, “how deep is Your love for me?”, or “why did you choose me?”, or ” How can You love a wretch like me?”. We can look back on our past, long before we were saved and we notice how those dramatic events made a difference. We then ask God questions like, “was that You God?, did You allow that to happen?”, “did You indeed work out all things for good, for my sake?”. Praise God, He is not distant, but He is personal and intimately involved with us.
And still like little children we question the answers provided to us by God with more questions; questions like “but why?”. Sometimes the answers just don’t seem right. We may mature in our walk, but we are still children of the Living God. Parents will often tire of the constant questions coming from their little children, but our Holy Father loves to reveal things to us. He does not grow weary.
Not all questions will be fully answered while we are here on this earth, but the verse above promises all questions will be answered, and looking at the whole context, we will be deeply satisfied with the answers. There are no wrong questions, and God even knows the questions before we speak them. Some questions are hard to put into word, but He understands. So ask your questions in the name of Christ, knowing that we can come confidently to the throne with our prayers and our petitions.
We are relaunching our regular church services Sunday, May 31, 2020. Service start at 10:30.
May God richly bless each of you this week.
