turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding,
and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding….”
God is helping us memorize Proverbs 2. It’s all about wisdom and understanding – good stuff! Here’s the next verse:
“and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure,”
If we knew for sure there was a pile of silver hidden in a certain place, how hard would we look? How much time would we take? How much effort?
If it was me and I had a pretty good idea of where to look and if I was guaranteed that the treasure would be there, I wouldn’t stop until I found it.
Here, God is guaranteeing us that there is very valuable treasure in his word to us. We just need to read it and accept it and store it up inside of our hearts and minds. We need to cry out for it and cry aloud for it…..and look for it. Search for it.
We’re on this journey together – growing in our relationship with God. As we grow in our ability to hear him. As we grow in ability to soak up his truth and apply it to our lives.
Thank you for helping us grow, dear Father.
