Ask the Right Questions

By Linda Tancs

How many times have you spun your wheels with a search engine, getting unexpected responses to a query, only to find that, had you asked the question differently, the responses would’ve given you what you sought? Sometimes our relationship with God seems like that. Maybe you’ve asked Him the same questions over and over and haven’t received the response you were seeking. Well, just like that search engine, maybe you’re not asking the right questions.

For instance, are you asking why when you should be asking how? Instead of asking why something happened, try asking how you can learn from it. Or maybe you’re asking how (how can I possibly accomplish this?) when you should be asking when (when is the right time to initiate this project because I know I can do all things through You?).

Try a new set of questions (Proverbs 3:5-6).
