SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR PAUL ENENCHE.
WEDNESDAY AUGUST 24, 2022.
TOPIC: ASKING GOD THE RIGHT QUESTIONS
SCRIPTURE: Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Psalms 2:8.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God loves to be asked; asking is proof of human helplessness and total dependence on God.
It has been confirmed that the attitude of enquiry is one posture for seeking Divine Direction. God loves to be asked; asking is proof of human helplessness and total dependence on God.
Now, what kind of questions are you supposed to ask God?
You can ask God questions like:
“Lord, is there something you are saying to me that I am not hearing? Please say it in the language I can understand.”
“Lord, is there something I am doing that I am not meant to do? Please let me see it. Let me know.”
“Lord, what is the mystery behind the struggle of my life? Please, show me”.
As a pastor, you ask God, “O LORD, what can I do for this church to move to the next level?”
“What can I do to move my life forward?”
And when you ask God, don’t ask Him in anger. There are people who ask God questions as if they are quarrelling with Him. They use a quarrelsome tone to ask God out of anger. They raise their voices on God at the place of prayer and ask questions like, “Okay, Lord, what do you want me to do now? What? Eh! Everyone is testifying about your goodness, what about me? Even people I invited to church are giving testimonies. What do you want me to do? Okay, tell me what you want?”
That is not how to ask God questions. Ask revelation-based expectation questions. Ask God questions with the mentality that you will hear something from Him. Ask with the mentality that God will say something to you. Even if God doesn’t say it now, in the course of studying the Word, believe that you will hear something from Him. Believe that you can hear God even in the dream of the night.
Remember this: God loves to be asked; asking is proof of human helplessness and total dependence on God.
1. Ask God revelation-expectation questions as it will make it easier to get answers from God.
2. Approach God with the attitude of meekness and humility.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to approach You with the attitude of humility Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
