Kids are some of the most curious creatures around. Their incessant questioning of why or what’s that can become a nuisance after about the 1000th(of course it’s never really that many times it just seems that way) time of answering such questions. Because they haven’t lived long enough to develop inhibitions, they quickly ask whatever comes to mind. Despite the place or time.
I’m not really sure when it happened but some where in the course of my life, I developed hatred for the word no. Of course later I discovered this is more aptly called a fear of rejection. Thus it left me refusing to ask some questions. Unasked questions led to unanswered questions. There are a myriad of reasons why people can not or will not fulfill our requests but there is One who knows all things and stands willing and ready to hear our requests. God is no magic genie or Santa Claus and He should not be approached as such but we don’t have to be afraid to ask Him even the really though questions.
If you need wisdom — if you want to know what God wants you to do — ask him, and he will gladly tell you. He will not resent your asking. James 1:5 NLT
You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous for what others have, and you can’t possess it, so you fight and quarrel to take it away from them. And yet the reason you don’t have what you want is that you don’t ask God for it. James 4:2 NLT
