Several years ago my family and I went to a party where a man played a game he called "21 Questions." Basically the purpose of the game was to quickly get to know someone. What is your favorite color? What was your most embarrassing moment? What is the best book you have ever read? Most enjoyed the fun of the game, and I love the idea. I should ask questions more. People who ask great questions have a different perceptive on life. Questions help you learn about yourself and others. What do you really want to know about your friends, your child, your health, or your God. Ask questions.

I love the real prayers recorded in the Psalms. Emotional, honest, raw, and daring to question...God. "O Lord, why do you stand so far away? Why do you hide when I need you the most?" (Psalm 10:1) Do you address God this way? The psalmist goes on to question God about the poor being oppressed, the wicked succeeding, the murders of the innocent, and the helpless being overwhelmed. The writer of Psalm 10 wants God to answer, and he wants an answer that shows God's power and sovereignty.

Do you have questions for God? Write them down. Pray and ask. Read God's Word. It's good to ask questions.
