Isn’t it odd to ask God questions while never expecting answers?
The Bible’s clear that He’s infinite in knowledge, and knows our thoughts before we speak them, so is there ever a rhetorical query when talking with God? Seeking them or not, we should expect God to answer any question posed to Him, no matter what kind it is.
Walking this morning, I ran through my daily prayer list. Then I asked my usual thing of the Lord: “What’s on our TO-DO list for today?” Quickly came the response.
“I’m depending on you
- to do the uncommon thing.”
- to improve on the *you* you were yesterday.”
- to write what no one else can.”
The uncom— “In other words, step away from the herd? Be positively different?” I heard God nod. You can, y’know.
M’kye. I got the improve part. Body, mind and spirit, I must take care of myself. I do. And I will.
The other? Nobody else writes exactly as I do, with my combo of humor, intuition, wit, insights and life experience. They can’t. Therefore, it’s mine to do. To be.
Something tells me I’ll hear the same thing tomorrow.
