WHEN I LOOK at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?
I love the word “question!” It contains its own meaning. To go on a great journey to discover or do something extraordinary is to go on a quest! It’s a big word, full of possibility and wonder. It’s also a great word for our faith. We are full of questions about God, humanity, and about the purpose of life. Our faith is a quest to discover who God is, who we are, and what our lives are about.
Psalm 139:7 captures a great question about the depth of God’s love for us. Consider Jesus’ question to his disciples as they joined him on his quest to bring salvation to humankind, “But who do you say that I am?” Or consider the rich young leader who asked Jesus, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?”
Each of these questions reveals an intense search to understand God, people, and life. So go ahead, ask your questions of God in prayer, search the Scriptures for God’s answers to your questions, and live your life fully on this quest to know God and the depth of God’s love.
