Ask Honest Questions

He Knows the Answers

By Max Lucado

“You answer us in amazing ways, God our Savior.”  Psalm 65:5

God never turns his back on those who ask honest questions. He never did in the Old Testament; he never did in the New Testament. So if you are asking honest questions of God, he will not turn away from you . . .

In learning to depend on God, we must accept that we may not know all the answers, but we know who knows the answers.


This was Max Lucado’s daily devotional from yesterday – which I didn’t actually read untill this morning and had to laugh at how amazing God can be.

We’re studying the Book of Revelation in Community Bible Study, which brings about many tough questions, many of which don’t come with solid answers. I love it that this interdemoninational study is respectful of differences and takes only the word straight from the Bible to communicate the truth, but there are still those lingering unknowns. So, yesterday I thought I’d voice an unknown in our leadership study and well, ask an honest question.

Tough questions aren’t comfortable and can still a room full of boisterous leaders willing to shout out answers – believe me, ha. So why are we left with so many mysteries in this book of utmost importance?

I thought about this for a while and about the feedback I received from many wonderful, intelligent women in our leadership study and realized that maybe that’s exactly it: I thought about it for a while. Maybe it’s more like Baking Cookies than anything else…and after baking all those cookies, I did have answers.

Proverbs 3:5 says to Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. I guess that’s it. Trust in Him and know that he has it all under control, even when we’re making a mess in His kitchen.
