Ask and You Shall Receive

I’ve got a great message to share with you… Here’s a little back story first. We are 10 weeks into our one-year certification program and we’re at the point where our students are asking questions and getting answers within them. This past week, one of our students, we’ll call him Roger, e-mailed us letting us know that he was having a personal challenge asking questions. This is what he sent to us. I think it will inspire you…

Roger: I had some strong feelings concerning the practice of asking questions; willy- nilly of the Holy Spirit. I thought that these questions in some way diminished the sacredness of our relationship. I felt that this was a wrong use of the Holy Spirit, so I asked?

The response I received was not what I expected.

Holy Spirit: I understand your feelings to protect what you view as the sacredness of our relationship. You are viewing our relationship from preconceived ideas that you have learned from the beginning about who God is. I love you for this, but let me assure you that you do not have to feel that I need any protection.

Understand that whoever comes to me and asks me a question is acknowledging our Holy Relationship by just coming to me. This in itself is a sacred act. The question in itself is secondary to the intention of coming to Me. In addition please understand; it is not the content of the question that is important but the significance of the answer. I can take any question, which on the surface may appear shallow or self serving, and provide an answer that is very enlightening and inspirational."

DavidPaul: Thank you Roger for your courage and willingness to take your question to Holy Spirit! As always, it’s a blessing to all!

Lots of love to you all!

    Yes, shallow question may lead to deep answer.

    Interesting how the word ‘sacred’ is very close to the word ‘scared’ when written down. The two words are opposite in meaning, I believe.

    Please thank Roger for this lovely reminder to quest WITH the Holy Spirit!

  • Great post! In order to dig deep, you have to start shallow first.

    I liked this because It just reminds me to stop and ask Holy Spirit things. So often we think we can go about our life with out any help but we really need holy spirit to intervene. Why not ask him to and ask him what way should I take here. The way you take or the answer to the question could change your life forever. I want to get back in the habit of asking Holy spirit & then waiting for his answer.

    I agree with you, about Roger his words is speaking directly to the heart. I can really relate to this, this is really good encouraging words. God Bless!

    I am now listening to day 27 of your recordings “To hear the voice of God”

    I must say I have already got much help from it.

    I do not share all your tought and beliefs, but like and support your strong message of love.

    I myself live for love, the truth that is within me, and am striving to love more and more.

    I see no use to talk with God, other that to ask myself questions.

    I Agree With You

  • I’m so glad to hear it. Thank you for letting me know! Keep up the great job!

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful conversation. It has renewed my faith in a great way. I once was involved with someone who said that it was wrong for me to ask God questions-I was asking as something had happened to me. I was not challenging God on the bad things that were happening but rather was innocently trying to understand what was happening because I was deeply hurt. This conversation has helped to heal my relationship with God and removed the doubt and fear that had been dwelling within me.

    Thank you and may God bless you.

    We are all God’s child and he has a plan for each one of us.  We all have some gifts from God and have something others don’t have.  This is the way God created so that we can share our gifts from God and prosper.  Some are born to be Basket player snd some are born to be work for God directly.  We all have a job for God’s plan thus one cannot be another person.  What we can discover is what we are good at is the key for our successful life.  It all involves with your parents, life experiences, and environment to form your life purposes.  We often cry out and say, “why me God?  Why this is happening to me?” but it too has its own hidden reasons.  We also have to accept our limitations means not degrating yourself but it is a wise to recognize your limitation and accept who you are.  Look in to your heart and desire will tell you who you are and what you should be doing in your life.  This is the key to happiness in our life.  Once you find the key, peace in your heart will develop happiness.
