Divine Note #59 - Ask God your questions, he listens - Habakkuk 1:2-3

Divine Note #59 – Written on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010, posted Oct. 18, 2010

Ask God your questions, he listens
Habakkuk 1:2-3 2 LORD, how long do I have to call out for help? Why don’t you listen to me? How long must I keep telling you that things are terrible? Why don’t you save us? 3 Why do you make me watch while people treat others so unfairly? Why do you put up with the wrong things they are doing?

I was fascinated by this book of the Bible. Habakkuk asked God hard questions – those same hard questions that you and I probably ask or want to ask. This Divine Note is simply written to let you know that God wants to hear from you. He knows that you have lots of questions about hard to swallow things that happen to you or those you care about.

God made you the person you are and he knows that you will seek him someday. So if you’re grappling with unanswered questions -- stop and talk to him! Ask him the hard questions…you may just be surprised by his answers. 

If you know God, then talk to him! Don't think things in your mind. Open your mouth and have a conversation with the Lord. He is your best friend, confident and trusted source.

Be ready for a response
I’ve asked God some hard questions and he has responded to me. Earlier this year, I told the Lord that I was going to ask him a specific question when I saw him in person. He answered my question immediately, and then he told me that he answered now because he needed for me to know the Truth, so I could be effective in the things he has assigned me to do on earth, now! I've been healed by God's answer, and I am more effective in the ministry he has for me.

My Prayer:Heavenly Father, Thank you for being God! I am in awe of your love for me. I ask you to help me help myself to be real with you. Let me be authentic in my relationship with you. Help me make my relationship with you the priority of my life. Help me follow up with action once I hear you. Show me how to obey when you speak! Thank you!

I encourage you to get real with God. Ask those burning questions. You might just be blown away!

Big God Hugs!

Scriptures for life

Compiled December 2011
These are a few of my favorite Scriptures. I cannot live my life without God and his word. I keep a 3x5 wire bound note diary of verses that pop off the pages of my Bibles. This helps me in case I need to comfort someone with a specific verse. Start your own collection!


Comfort

Psalm 119:76 Comfort me with your love, as you promised me, your servant.
Job 4:4 Your words have comforted those who fell, and you have strengthened those who could not stand.
Strength

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
