When God Asks A Question

I just wrote this to a very dear friend of mine that is going through a tough time. I thought I'd share it with you too.

When I read the bible, I love when God asks a question. He doesn't ask for Himself. He already knows the answer. He asks us because he wants us to understand and get it.

He asked Adam, "Where art thou?" Sometimes we don't realize where we are in life and it takes the voice of God to remind us.

He asked Moses, "What is that that you have in your hand?" Many times the very blessing we need is already in our grasp.

He asked Malachi, "Will a man rob God?" It's so easy to give our time to everything but the work of The Lord.

He asked Ezekiel, "Can these bones live?" Sometimes you may think a situation in your life has died, but God is reminding you that it can live. It's not dead. It's not over.

He asked a lame man, "Wilt thou be made whole?" God already knows He has the power to deliver you but you need to want to be delivered.

He asked Abraham, "Is there anything too hard for God?"

Think about that as you're going through life. I don't care what it looks like. There is nothing too hard for God to do.

Praying for you today. Your friend and brother,

    Thanks Mr Tyler for this inspirational message you've shared, it makes so much sense, God asks questions he already knows answers to. Just the right time for me to read this, i needed to understand why God asks questions and its for us to understand, it actually got to me. Thank you, much love to you and God bless.

    Amen!!! tell your friends, # 1 make sure GOD is LORD over their life. This way it wont be hard to put everything you shared with them into action. And when GOD began to share with them, through His word ( BIBLE) who He is, beleiving him and acting it out will become a natural thing. And life situation becomes lesson learned. Only to get you to where God Purpose for you too be. He uses them (Life Situation)to get our attention and redirect our steps to his purpose and to people, he himself has design to help. This is where You come in Tyler > # 2 Tell them I said, that they are Blessed to have such an compassionte, caring man who not only believe in our God, Lord, and Saviour but who will take out the time out of a busy day and I know ya busy, to share the word to encourage them. Thats God sent. : ) Bless you always Tyler. Can't wait for your next youtube auditions hint, hint Im not giving up on my dreams. My Heart An My Mind is the place where my dreams believe. #Go have and #Awesome day.

    This really resonates, because God recently ask me this--"How will you respond to having Type 2 Diabetes, Miss Thing?" So my answer was I will do the things I should have been doing all along with this body you gave me: I will eat healthier, I will exercise, I will get more rest, and I will pray for your assistance--which I know I will get...so because God gave me my sense of humor and He loves a good laugh, I ask Him "So how it is that this is a challenge? This is a life sentence!" Yeah, He laughed at that...

    Tyler, if only you knew just how much everything you create has touched my very soul. In my heart you are indeed a friend and a much needed source of light. iHeart you Tyler Perry.

  • June Scott Charles New York, NY

    Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom of The Word. It makes so much sense the way you broke God's questions down. Questions He already knew the answers to. You bought clarity to me , along with confirmation with this one. God's Word will never return void. Thank you for constantly being such an inspiration to all of us. Love you always...

  • Not gonna say. Just a fan. Texas

    As usual Coach, you are right on time with what I needed this week. My 1st week of the last year of law school is almost over and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. (and hopefully it "ain't" the light calling me to heaven. LOL!) Thanks so much. I am tired of working 3 jobs and going to school full time as a single parent, but I know the vision and dream that God put in my heart will come to fruition when He sees fit to do so.... Btw, I know your birthday is coming up next month and I would like to invite you to the Rickey Anderson Celebrity Golf Tournament that is hosted by the students in our Sport and Entertainment Law Student organization at our school on Sept 14th. Rickey is an attorney that teaches Entertainment Law at our school. I actually got one of the coveted spots in his class this semester. I think there should be a link to the event on the schools webpage at tsulaw.edu at some point. The tournament is to defrey the cost for students that are traveling to the Black Entertainment and Sports Lawyers Association conference in the Dom. Republic in October. If you can't come and golf for your birthday with some of your friends as a team to help the chil'rens (LOL), and you would like to make a donation, send it to the Dean of External Affairs, Miss Prudence Smith, at Thurgood Marshall School of Law (Texas Southern University) in Houston, Tx. I am not asking for myself because then I would have to reveal who I am and that would take all the fun out of me being able to remain anonymous and call you coach. :-) I would prefer that you attend so you can get a break from working and have some "you" time, especially on your birthday. My mom was really big on celebrating birthdays and I am too. Sooooooo if you attend, I would still remain anonymous and not identify myself. (I've gots ta' stay In-cog-negro Coach! ROTFL!) .......Have a great week!......Because I care, T.......I almost forgot to tell you that I am loving the Haves and Have Nots and I am Hooked on Hattie too! I have to run in from Choir rehearsal on Tuesday night and run home from wed night service to catch my shows! You're mind is ab-so- smurfly AMAZING!
