If I give you information that you are not interested in, you are going to forget it. Undesired information has little value. However, information that is provided in response to a question has ongoing value and activates our learning and reasoning.
Walking In The SpiritYou will find that questions are a powerful mechanism that God uses throughout the scriptures. Why? To activate our thinking. To reveal information that we would not otherwise discover or realize. Did you ever notice that Jesus answered questions with questions? It was to activate the other persons thinking.
The Holy Spirit works in a similar way. Here's how. Have you ever had a question come to mind about something in the scriptures or about God? Of course. We all have. Did you take the time to get that question answered? If not, you missed an opportunity to walk in the spirit.
Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit's leading in every part of our lives. - Galatians 5:25 NLT
The Lord wants us to know Him and His ways and He is always moving us to learn of Him. However, He doesn't make us do anything. He draws us. So if we want more information we need to go get it.
For no one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me, and at the last day I will raise them up. - John 6:44 NLT
