ASK ABOUT EVERYTHING!
Some people think asking questions is a show of weakness, I think not asking questions is a show of ignorance. I Ask About Everything. Especially the I don’t want to sound stupid questions.
Asking questions sounds as if you are aware of other things besides yourself (conscience) and looking for answers. Who would have thought you had it in you? Your willingness to learn just goes to show how much others don’t know about you.
Never be afraid to ask whomever, a mentor, parent, friend, teacher, especially God. There is a penalty for not asking, and that is you’ll never learn if you fear its answer.
I know am only a speck it this Wide World but it’s my speck and I want it, and I want to have the ability to understand it. How do we get there? Asking the right questions is a good start coupled with at the right time and to the right source.
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraided not; and it shall be given to him. James 1:5 KJV
You can do it, you can Ask God for and about anything, something I can testify to. I am a 3rd Stage Breast Cancer Survivor of nine years. The key was I went to God even before I knew the Doctors weren’t optimistic. I told God, he said all I needed was the Faith of a mustard seed. Now with Cancer, it was the time to put His Word and My Faith to the test.
I know only needing the faith of a mustard seed sounds too small and too easy, and a lot of people don’t make it because of that, and it causes others to lose Faith when they feel God has failed them. Everybody has to go at some point.
When it’s not our time to leave this Earth and we have a real relationship with Jesus Christ, we can defeat the hardships of this World, and when we can take Christ at his word while laying all our concerns on The Altar of Prayer without any doubt, we can achieve all he has promised. He did it for me so I know he’ll do it for others.
Ask, and it will be given unto you; seek and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8 KJV
Most know we don’t do that, we listen to ourselves and waddle in our misery because we never ask, or if we do bend our knees often we pray the Why Me, Lord prayer. Our ears and mind shut down when we are in trouble or just plain ole stupid.
There is a Spiritual order and I learned before we ask God for our desires, especially for our life, we should take care to think about what He has asked of us. Laws were laid down long before our time; the first Ten, are Commandments. Guidelines that need to be practiced to get to the finish line whether it is sooner than we think or not.
Most know talk doesn’t make things happen, prayer does and it’s a process that starts with the Commandments, and that requires action, so we should ask ourselves a number of questions before we consider what to ask God for, or what to say to others.
Try this: First, think about what you are asking for then ask God what to do and how to do it. For instance, before lying ask why lie; ask is it worth it; how many will it hurt and can I live with the repercussions? Ask what may happen if we choose not to lie, what will happen if we say nothing?
Saying nothing…sometimes says the most. Emily Dickerson
I don’t mind asking God about anything, especially what is said by prophets and teachers. I check in with Jesus Christ and then check their credentials for falsehoods. You Do You, as for me, I’ll be asking questions and seeking answers at every turn, and Googling them is a part of it.
Can any hide in secret places that I cannot see him? saith the Lord. Do I not fill Heaven and Earth? saith the Lord. Jeremiah 23:24
Just so you know, while the false are looking in, am looking out and asking plenty of questions for protection.
There are a number of reasons that could hamper us from finding answers, one is not asking the question, another is we didn’t use common sense, etc… More importantly, we need to know when asking questions is not enough. At some point, we may need to quit asking questions and take action.
Often we ask, more like beg for what we feel we deserve, for instance, happiness but with conditions. That’s not how it works, happiness is something we feel; a choice we choose to embrace, and it can be found in achievements and creative efforts, not asking for God to give it to you, although you can.
I Ask About Everything for knowledge and understanding, at least it helps me to understand why I don’t get all I want. ; )
Most days I ask myself if am doing what I believe in, and am I doing them for the right reasons, and I wonder if we don’t ask for help, will anyone get the opportunity to be helpful? Aren’t we supposed to be in support of one another?
Asking questions is the source of knowledge, so in my defense, I believe my greatest strength is I am ignorant enough to ask a few. Do we have that in common?
FYI: When asking questions concerning our sinful ways, The only thing to do with sin is to confess, ask for penance and then, after some kind of decent interval, ask for forgiveness. Joseph J. Ellis
It’s Something To Think About!
Thank you, Lord, for all you do and it is in Jesus name that we pray. Amen
