Wednesday, August 5, 2020 - Asking Questions Series: :God's Purposes Through Questions
August 5, 2020
Did you know questions can reveal God's purposes for your life? They did with Moses—and they can with you today. After forty years of tending sheep, Moses experienced a burning bush where God called him to free the Jewish people from slavery. Yet Moses initially answered, "Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh…?" Moses didn't believe he was the right person for God's purpose. Do you ever struggle with God's purpose for your life? If so, God's response to Moses can encourage you today. He didn't tell Moses he was good enough. Instead, He declared, "I will be with you." When God is with us, we have all the strength we need. We can face life's questions with the Lord's power. Don't doubt your purpose; trust in God's purpose for your life today.
Tuesday, August 4, 2020 - Asking Questions Series: Questions Challenge Our Faith
August 4, 2020
Can God use a personal question to challenge our faith? He certainly can—and often does. Questions can be used in a variety of ways. For example, God sometimes uses questions to address areas of weakness or sin in our lives. In the Bible's first question, the serpent questioned God's law to Eve, asking, "Did God really say you shall not eat of any tree in the garden?" After Adam and Eve had been deceived, God had His own question for Adam. He asked, "Where are you?" The Lord knew the answer, but used His question to start a conversation about sin and its consequences. Questions can be used for evil, as in the serpent's case, or for good, as in the Lord's response. Today, ask AND respond to questions God's way, standing for truth whatever the situation.
Monday, August 3, 2020 - Asking Questions Series: Who Do You Say that I Am?
August 3, 2020
How can we address the difficult questions we have about our faith? The answer is often found in understanding the important role of asking questions. While many see doubts and questions as weaknesses, God often uses questions to help us better understand and live out our faith. Jesus often used probing questions to address deep spiritual issues. For example, after asking His disciples, "Who do people say that I am?" He asked His own disciples, "Who do YOU say that I am?" Peter answered, "You are the Christ." Though the crowds had many opinions about the Lord, Peter recognized His true identity. Instead of avoiding tough questions, consider them an opportunity to grow spiritually and to deepen your walk with the Lord. He is powerful enough to handle any question you face today.
