What would life be like if you never asked questions? You would never learn even a fraction of the knowledge available – just for the asking.
People who love you want you to ask. If they have knowledge about something which could be of help to you, they want to share with you. But if there is no communication, they are not aware of your needs. Asking reveals needs. That’s what it’s all about.
When Abraham sent his servant to find a wife for his son, Isaac, the servant prayed, Genesis 24 (KJV):’12 And he said, “O Lord God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, send me good speed this day, and shew kindness unto my master Abraham.13 Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water: 14 And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say, drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: let the same be she that thou hast appointed for thy servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know that thou hast shewed kindness unto my master.”
That was a wise servant. He didn’t want to take on such a big responsibility without asking for God’s help.
And by the way, he received exactly what he asked for.
Lord God, I need You to teach me how to ask, and when. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ desires me to ask for His help – I will!
