Questions for God

You may not be able to relate to these at all. But I’m having a little conversation here with God and I thought I’d jot it down and share it with you . . .

You are my benevolent, gracious, all-knowing, all-wise, all-powerful, Master and Savior.

So . . .

  • Why do I fill my mind with worry, when I know You’ve got this, You don’t need my energy spent there?
  • Why do I retreat when You said, “Go!”?
  • Why do I fight for self when You called me to die to self?

And . . .

I think it’s because I’m still very much a “work in progress,” but I am so grateful that God has promised to keep changing me:

[box]“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:6)[/box]

Knowing that one truth brings hope and rest.

For those of you who passionately desire to grow in Christ and glorify God . . . don’t be discouraged if progress is slow.

Remember, it’s His work, by His grace, through His means of sanctification. Rest in that.

If you read through the questions above without clicking on the links, I hope you’ll go back and read through the Scripture verses that I embedded in each question and ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes to how He wants this truth applied to your life.

Do you have any questions you’re asking God today?

    Kimberly, this was such a beautiful and meaningful post. I wept as I read each of these embedded scriptures. Thanks so much for your posts. I read each of them with an open heard and an open mind, and they help me beyond measure. Blessings to you.
