Asking the Right Question

The questions you ask yourself each day will either expand or contract your life.

“Why did this happen to me?”

“Why is God allowing this?”

“Why doesn’t anyone seem to care?”

“What if?”

Dwelling on questions like that will drop you in a dark hole, with a negative, insecure, fragile identity.

“Who do you want to be for me right now, Lord?”

“How do you see me, Father?”

“What good is possible in this situation?”

“How can I be part of what you want to do?”

Be intentional with talking your questions through with God, instead of incessantly trying to figure them out in your head, or bottling them up in your heart. Every time you do, you open the door for him to empower and equip you for what’s ahead, and to keep you encouraged in his hope, peace, and joy on the way.

So, what’s the next question you really need to ask right now?

“May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is” (Eph. 4:18).
