Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalm 27:4 (KJV); One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.
David had a godly habit that teaches us how men with a relationship with God live. He was a man who took his questions to God. Our theme scripture speaks of his desire to inquire in God’s temple.
One of the sad facts I have observed about some Christians is how little they inquire. They may have questions about some circumstances in their lives, events in the world, about the scriptures, or spiritual realities.
Some revert to the world, for example, the media for answers. Others simply shrug off their questions and move on with their lives in the hope that it will not ever matter again.
That is a dangerous attitude for anyone who aspires to be a true seeker of God. Some questions, when they arise, provide us with windows into deeper spiritual understanding or knowledge of how the world works.
The Spirit of God is available to explain life and its many complexities to you. You may not realise it but your lack of curiosity is a limitation to Him.
Learn to ask, to puzzle over life, events and people in general. You open yourself to greater wisdom as you do so.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this word. Thank You for stirring in me divine curiosity. I search out the meaning of things with the aid of Your Spirit. As I do, I understand how life works and walk in the paths of wisdom, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
