I want you to read these five benefits of inquiring of the Lord. This may just be one of the reasons why you have not received a miracle over that naughty problem.

What does it mean to inquire of the Lord?

Inquiring of the Lord is all about going to God in prayer to ask Him questions on issues you don’t have a full understanding of what they are.  It’s all about asking God to find the truth about a problem or any issue in life.

Why should you inquire of the Lord?

You should inquire of the Lord because of the following reasons:

  • He is God and He is all-knowing
  • You are His child and He wants to be a good Father to you
  • He wants you to ask, seek and make efforts to find answers to any question of life. (Matthew 7:7)
  • He wants to shine the light to provide a path you can follow to have your miracle
  • He is inviting you to a conversation because He said come with your strong reasons

Strong people inquire of the Lord

Strong people approach God when there are problems to solve. They know the best and the surest solutions are in God and His Word.

You are strong when you seek knowledge or information from the almighty God because you will always come out with information that lifts your spirit and make you do exploits. Weak people seek information from alternative sources.

How Isaac and Rebecca benefited from inquiring of the Lord

Isaac and Rebecca benefited from the practice of inquiring of the Lord.

See what Isaac and Rebecca did:

Genesis 25:21-23
[21]Now Isaac pleaded with the Lord for his wife, because she was barren; and the Lord granted his plea, and Rebekah his wife conceived.
[22]But the children struggled together within her; and she said, “If all is well, why am I like this?” So she went to inquire of the Lord.
[23]And the Lord said to her: “Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; One people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger.”

Strong and wise people!
