I don’t see why not? You know, for most part of my life I’ve heard good meaning Christians say that “you can’t question God”. That really bothered me because I didn’t create myself nor did I create everything in the world. That was all Him so why can’t I question Him about the things I don’t understand about my life and the world in general? When I made a commitment to study the scriptures, I was amazed to find out how many people were questioning God and He wasn’t mad at them. 

One of those moments was in Genesis 15:2 AMP, where God was promising Abraham of a great reward He has for him. Abraham looked at his life very thoughtfully and questioned God, 

“ Abram said, “Lord [a]God, what reward will You give me, since I am [leaving this world] childless, and he who will be the owner and heir of my house is this [servant] Eliezer from Damascus?” Abraham even went on in Genesis 15:3 to kind of accuse God that, “Since You have given no child to me, one (a servant) born in my house is my heir.” 

Let me break down this conversation between God and Abraham in modern language. Abraham had been blessed extremely by God except the gift of a child. Genesis 13:2 ESV reveals that “Abraham was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.” Which means he lacked nothing except an heir. When God told him He will reward him, to Abraham it sounded more like a joke because really, he has everything. The Message Bible even reads it better: Genesis 15:2-3 MSG Abram said, “God, Master, what use are your gifts as long as I’m childless and Eliezer of Damascus is going to inherit everything?” Did Abraham really ask God what use are His gifts to him? That sounds rude doesn’t it? I mean, if I asked that same question to any regular human, they would tell me I’m stepping out of line. Read Genesis 15 further to see how God responds to Abraham – very reassuringly. No, He wasn’t mad at Abraham at all for that question. Do you see a similar pattern in Job 38 MSG when He responds to Job? I love reading Job 38 because it’s a similar conversation and response between God and myself all the time. 

What I am trying to tell you is that God is not a man who gets angry and offended by every question we pose. We would all be dead by now if that was His nature. On the contrary, He loves to give us the wisdom we lack. He wants us to ask Him the things that we don’t understand and He is perfectly fine with our tantrums and frustrations. After all, we are His children and what do children do? Throw fits at everything don’t they get. So, bring it all to Him. Whatever you are facing, however you are feeling, He is patiently waiting to provide answers to you. Go ahead and let the questions rain this week. Don’t walk through your year with your brain almost about to explode because you have questions only God can answer. 

Be blessed!
