For the past month, a Boeing 777 jet has been missing. Aviation experts and newscasters have filled the airwaves with their speculation and theories concerning its fate. We may one day see that some came close to the truth, while others missed it completely. One thing, however, is certain: there is One who knows exactly what happened to the plane.
As a people, we spend much time speculating and pontificating about things we do not know with absolute surety. The apostle Paul came across such a scene: “All the Athenians and the foreigners who lived there spent their time doing nothing but talking about and listening to the latest ideas” (Acts 17:21). We have no doubt that God greatly delights in our pursuit of knowledge. But He invites us to pursue knowledge with Him:
“Come, let us reason together.” (Isaiah 1:18)
In a similar invitation, Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me” (Matthew 11:28-29 NIV).
Not only can we learn about Jesus, but we can learn truth and receive the answers to our questions from Jesus. What does this look like? You simply ask Him. Whatever is on your mind today, go to Jesus and ask Him. First, He will take you to His Word. His Words are truth and all truth is consistent with His Word. He also speaks wise counsel through godly people. He may wake you in the middle of the night with insight, straight from His heart to yours. He may speak to you in a myriad number of ways, including through circumstances and creation. It may take time. Yet, be assured, He will speak!
Ask God the question(s) on your mind.
Believe He will speak.
Listen for Him to answer.
