There are many questions that humans ask to God (mostly asked by unbelievers) such as, why is there so much evil and suffering in the world, or what happens to those people that never hear about Jesus, or how can we trust the Bible, or how can a good God send people to Hell. These and many more questions are asked every day, but we rarely want to hear (or answer) the questions that God asks to all of us.
Below are some of those divine questions. Please note that God knows everything, so his queries do not proceed from ignorance. He asks questions to teach us his will.
“Where are you?” (Genesis 3:9) In your walk with God and spiritual maturity and sanctification.
“Who told you…?” (Genesis 3:11) Who are we listening to, God or the enemy?
“What is this you have done?” (Genesis 3:13) There are rewards or consequences for our actions.
“Why are you angry” (Genesis 4:6) There is no reason to remain angry if Jesus is with us.
“…where are you going?” (Genesis 16:8) Are you running to, or away from God?
“Is anything too hard for the Lord?” (Genesis 18:14) Nothing at all.
“What is your name?” (Genesis 32:27) My name is Christian. What is yours?
“Who has made man’s mouth?” (Exodus 4:11) Open your mouth to declare the glory of God
“What are you doing here?” (1 Kings 19:9) We are here to glorify God
“Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” (Isaiah 6:8) Is either you or me…there is no one else.
“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?” (Matt. 16:26)
Hell was the “profit” for the rich man.
“…who do you say that I am?” (Mark 8:29) You are my God, my Lord, my Savior, my all.
“…do you love me?” (John 21:16) I do; help me to love you more.
“Why do you seek the living among the dead?” (Luke 24:5) Our purpose and our pleasure are found in the Lord of life, not in the sin that leads to death.
“…what is your life?” (James 4:14) My life is short and meaningless without you Lord. Use my life for your glory.
