DIG for Tuesday the 8th of December…..ask God questions, but do not question God…..Luke 1 v 34

Mary and Joseph are quite extraordinary characters in the account of the birth of Jesus, and I’ll go into more detail about them in the coming days, but one of the things I see about them is that they ask God questions but do not question God and they obey Him.

There is a difference about being genuine and asking questions to get more knowledge and questioning a person about what they say and do; this is something you will know all about if you are a pastor!

In the account of the birth of Jesus I see Mary asking a question but never disbelieving or questioning anything God said.

Mary asked how she could get pregnant if she had never “known” a man.

This was a genuine question; she did not say, “I cannot get pregnant, I’ve never known a man”.

Through an angel God answered her question and Mary believed.

This was not a question of doubt, but it was a question to clarify what God was going to do.

Saying, “I’ll cannot be pregnant” or “I cannot get pregnant” would have been doubt.

Never worry about asking God questions, if you do it in the right heart and with the right motives.

We are in no position and have no right to question God about what He has done or will do, but we can ask how He will do it and how we are involved.

In fact this is something we must do in order to get into line with the plan and purpose He has for our life.

Go ahead and ask God some questions today!

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that like you had for Mary you have a plan and purpose for my life”.

Luke 1 v 34…..Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man
