Job 38:3 (NIV)
I will question you.
Has God questioned you lately? God's questions are His way of getting our attention. Job didn't know why he was going through the trouble he was in. He didn't know how Satan challenged God to test Job (Job 1:9-12). However, God never answered Job's questions about why he was suffering and why God was silent. Instead, God answered Job's questions with a question. Another innocent Man, Jesus of Nazareth, asked a similar question, "My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me"? He, too, didn't receive an answer.
There is no such thing as an unanswered prayer. God may choose to answer our question with another question. Sometimes, that's His way of guiding us to the correct answer, as Job ultimately found out (Job 42:5).
