The Bible is full of questions. Some are questions that we’ve wrestled with but have been reluctant to voice. Others are asked to comfort, to convict, or to reinforce spiritual principles. Each devotional in Drawing Closer to God is based on a question asked by someone in the Bible—God, Jesus, Satan, an Old Testament character, or a New Testament writer. The meditation explores the setting, ties it into a spiritual principle or practical application, and includes a verse that relates back to the question or its answer. The day’s entry closes with either a question for readers to ask God (prayer focus) or a question to ask themselves (reflection).
“The more I studied these questions, the more I was struck by how much God communicates to us through them. And by how many questions in the Bible can be matched with a verse that answers it. It intrigued me to think that sometimes we can find answers by looking at the questions.” Dianne Neal Matthews
