The Odd Question
Have you ever experienced that awkward moment in class when the teacher is interrupted by the student with the odd question? You know the one question that seemed off topic and had absolutely nothing to do with lesson. But somehow they tied the current topic of discussion to their internal narrative that was playing loudly in their own head. This moment usually resulted in wide eyed stares, giggles, and snickering as the teacher attempted to redirect the class back on topic. Unfortunately, this usually left the student feeling ashamed. And probably discouraged them from even thinking of asking another question any time soon!
I know this moment all too well because this happened to me numerous occasions throughout my school years. It would make me feel as if I asked the stupid question. But I never stopped asking the questions!!! Thank God who is The Teacher who never dismissed me because of what would seem to others as the “stupid” question! He loved me enough to listen...
Here’s a few scriptures to remind you just how much The Teacher loves us. He is caring and kind and wants us to be successful in every situation. We can come to Him about anything. Simply put conversations with God is prayer. So these moments in prayer we can ask Him anything.
Romans 8:38-39 | NLT
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Isaiah 28:26 | NIV
His God instructs him and teaches him the right way.
This is what the LORD says-- your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.
Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
There is nothing we can’t come to Him about. Ask God the hard questions. The things that may make sense to others but makes no sense to you. He is our teacher and longs for us to be infused the knowledge and wisdom of the Kingdom. As long as there is breath in our bodies we have work to do and He doesn’t want us to be misinformed!
Besides life’s too short to live stressed when you’re JessBlessed!
