You Can Bring it to God
Chosen by God!
It’s not a lack of faith to bring our questions, concerns, and heartfelt feelings to God. We are not less connected to Him, or less spiritual by asking Him questions. He knows exactly where we are and what we’re feeling. It may be at the point of asking these questions that we get our breakthrough and a proper perspective of what’s going on.
As believers, we want to say all of the right things, not admit to being afraid, concerned, or disturbed about our circumstances. Yet, if we were not going to face challenges that cause these feelings there wouldn’t be so many Scriptures addressing these challenges and our feelings concerning them. Our questions don’t make us weak. When we take them to God, our questions give us strength, His strength.
In Psalm 13, David begins by questioning God, through five verses. It’s in the last verse that he remembers who He trusts and remembers God’s character.
“Lord, how long will You forget me? Forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? How long will I store up anxious concerns within me, agony in my mind every day? How long will my enemy dominate me? Consider me and answer, Lord my God. Restore brightness to my eyes; otherwise, I will sleep in death. My enemy will say, “I have triumphed over him,” and my foes will rejoice because I am shaken. But I have trusted in Your faithful love; my heart will rejoice in Your deliverance. I will sing to the Lord because He has treated me generously.” (Psalm 13:1-6 HCSB)
Sometimes, the questions that seem like we lack faith are the very ones that remind us exactly how much faith we have.
