Prov. 2:3-6 Cry out for insight and understanding. Search for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure. Then you will understand what it means to fear the LORD and you will gain knowledge of God. For the LORD grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Do you cry out for insight and understanding, or are you satisfied with what little you know? Lets face it, most of us do not have a deep longing for insight and understanding. We shrug off what we don’t know and don’t try to dig deeper to know. There are many things we cannot know for they are hidden in God, but there are many things He wants us to know that we don’t pursue.
What we do know and understand determines how mature we become in faith. He who knows little will not do well in his walk with the Lord. The more spiritual knowledge and understanding we have in our hearts, the more capable we will be to deal with the many ups and downs of living.
Spiritual knowledge is far more valuable than all the riches of earth. What we learn about the Lord and His ways inspires within us a fear for Him. We learn that God is to respected and treated with reverence. We learn that we are responsible for our living and thinking and must let the Lord have control of them.
Wise is he who seeks the Lord and strives to understand His ways. The more we learn of Him, the more we are able to live lives that are pleasing to Him. The Lord gives wisdom to all who earnestly cry out to Him. He will not deny anyone insight and understanding if they sincerely seek Him.
May your heart hunger and thirst for God today. May your heart cry out for insight and understanding so you can live rightly before Him today and always. Don’t give up on your quest and the Lord will fulfill your longing. Wisdom comes to those who sincerely seek the Lord.
