    I just finished a Bible study in the book of Job…good thoughts about how God often answers our questions! (or how we need to answer his questions of us).

    I have to confess that I don’t always get to the point quickly.
    However, I notice, as you said, God may not either. Of course, since he’s God, he’s allowed.
    But here’s one example of him giving me a direct answer was when I asked him following a near-fatal auto accident, “Why did you spare me?” He said quite succinctly, “None of your business.” It led me straight to John 21 where Peter points to John and asks Jesus, “What about him?’
    Jesus answers quite succinctly, “What is that to you? You must follow me.”
    God was talking to me in a language I could understand because he knows my personality and because he knows the Holy Spirit will lead me to scripture where I’ll find a simple answer. I believe God keeps it simple and we are the ones who tend to complicate things. God will get to the point, but lead us to listening to the Spirit. If we do that, we won’t drag things out, trying to guess at what his purpose is for us. That’s why “Trust and Obey” is one of my favorite hymns.
    Thanks again for your lovely insights into how God makes relevant the situations in our daily lives.
