Ask a Question. . .

Ever considered who God is?

Many of us come to God as to a rich uncle, begging Him to give us this or that. Many times we bring a long wish list of what we want Him to do for us. We treat Him like a servant who had better do our bidding and woe to Him if He doesn’t. Then we sulk and dishonor Him when our wishes aren’t fulfilled. We blame Him. How could He possibly be good! How can He truly be a loving being?

At other times we think He can’t do anything. He must be helpless and it’s we who need to help Him make our prayers come true ourselves.

Have you ever considered the fact that God, whom we are speaking with when we pray, is GOD? He is the One who with a word made all the galaxies and stars and every single thing in the universe? Shouldn’t that instill a certain fear and respect in us? Shouldn’t it inspire an awe that brings us to our knees, in humility, making us ask what He wants us to do for Him.

It is not wrong to ask Him and He encourages us to do so. He tells us we can come to Him as children to their Father and He is pleased with our trust and requests.

But God is the One who was and is and always will be. We live in a time where we want to be nothing more than the managers of our own lives, we don’t like to have any authority over us. We have forgotten how to submit to a sovereign Lord. And yet, God remains the eternal God, all-powerful, all-wise, and present everywhere. It is good to meditate on who He truly is.

Why not ask God right now to show you what He wants you to do and then wait for his answer and do it. The answer will surely come. And I have experienced that what He asks us is always the most blessed way, and the way to know Him more.
