“My child, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and you will find the knowledge of God.”
Awesome! It’s it amazing how God partners with us as memorize his word? The vast majority of us could never do this on our own so it’s a special blessing to be able to see this how obviously God is working in our minds as he helps us memorize verse after verse….after verse. I have started attaching an audio recording (below) of me as I repeat my verses – it’s not perfect. But it’s close! That’s what counts 🙂
And we hit treasure in our next verse!
‘For the Lord gives wisdom, from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.’
Do we want wisdom?
Well, we know where to go to get it. The Lord gives it. It comes from him.
Do you feel his wisdom and understanding growing in you as you etch his words on your heart and mind?
I do. It’s subtle…..but steady.
I meditate on the words as I memorize them. And I apply them to my life right now.
I’m amazed at how often I get to use them in my conversations.
God is good! All the time!
Thank you, Abba Father.
