Questioning God is Ok

I saw the following quote somewhere, below is my response to it.
"Don't put a question mark where God puts a period."

Do we have such perfect spiritual hearing that we aren't to question what we think is God? Many follow deceptive thoughts and selfish ambition thinking it is the Lord's voice. When we aren't allowed to question God we lose our intimate relationship with Him and in fact hinder further communication with Him and instruction from Him.

Open honesty is best for our relationship with God. Pretending to be certain about something is not. If we continue to communicate with God and listen to Him He will turn doubt into desire. He will expose falsehood as the destructive force it is. He will turn our uncertainty into treasured reality.

It is better to doubt God than it is to lie to yourself. Doubt is not a reason to muster up confidence. Doubt is a reason to consult the Father. The Father knows that doubts are best removed inside of a loving relationship. Trying to convince yourself that you "shouldn't doubt" or "shouldn't be afraid" doesn't drive out fear. Only God's perfect love drives out fear and doubt. You don't have to "fake it until you make it," simply relate and receive. He started your faith and He finishes it so why do we think that means we have to muster something up in-between?
