One day, I was listening to a speech by Dr. Ben Carson, the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, who said something that caught my attention. He said that when he was a young boy, whenever he had a problem, he would be apprehensive about going to his mother for an answer. He knew that with his question, she would ask him a question, such as, “Son, do you have a brain?” He knew that when he would answer with a resounding yes, she would then say, “Well, go figure it out!” This was the beginning of his quest for knowledge and his pursuit of wisdom. We often ask God for things He has already given to us. Our challenge only exists because what we have isn’t immediately identifiable or we are looking for something else other than the thing we are asking God for which He has weaved into the fabric of our being.
