When you were a little girl, you may have been the one always asking questions? Why is the sky blue? How are babies born? Why is God invisible? What happens when we die? We grow up asking tons of questions to where our parents would become exhausted. If you are a parent, you understand that children can ask a lot of questions and there’s no end even after an answer is given. Every question leads to another one. Famous Spanish painter, Pablo Picasso, once said “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” Well every child is also very inquisitive. The problem is how to remain inquisitive once we become adults. Some of us take life as it is and accept things the way they have always been without discovering a new way, or challenging the system,or going a little further to find out why and how things work the way they do. We can lose that inquisitive child-like quality because we are told ‘it is what it is’ and this is the real world. Well it may be how it is at the moment and how it’s always been, but that’s not how it has to be. God has a better way of doing things. He has a better view that’s not limited by anything or anyone. Don’t settle for not knowing and not understanding when it comes to God. Ask Him for understanding and knowledge. Seek after Him for answers. Ask Him the questions that’s been burning in your heart to ask all of your life. An inquisitive wife in the presence of God will find that God will give her wisdom and understanding regarding her husband. An inquisitive mother that’s constantly seeking God for answers, will come away with answers on how their children or teens are wired and how to love them. An inquisitive woman that’s troubled with the direction her life has taken, will find answers when she approaches a God that knows all, sees all, and is all. Become inquisitive in the presence of God and receive the answers, the understanding and knowledge you are seeking after.
“One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.” Psalm 27:4 (KJV)
You are my God and You know everything. Help me not to be satisfied with ignorance and not knowing. I want to know everything about everything. Help me never stop learning, inquiring of, and investigating You. Your knowledge, understanding and wisdom is precious to my soul and I want more of it. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen
