Updated: Jan 3
Read Proverbs 2
Thoughts from Proverbs 2:
Tune your ears to wisdom
Concentrate on understanding
Cry out for insight
Ask for understanding
To understand the fear of the Lord!
Understand - bîyn, to separate mentally (or distinguish), i.e.(generally) understand:—attend, consider, be cunning, diligently, direct, discern, eloquent, feel, inform, instruct, have intelligence, know, look well to, mark, perceive, be prudent, regard, (can) skill(-full), teach, think, (cause, make to, get, give, have) understand(-ing), view, (deal) wise(-ly, man). (Strongs H995)
Fear - yirʼâh, morally, reverence (Strong's H3374)
Continued thoughts from Proverbs 2:
Gain knowledge of God
God grants wisdom, knowledge, and understanding - He wants us to have it
A treasure of common sense - a lack of common sense is a lack of accessing God's wisdom and understanding
Shielded, watched over - protected when we walk in integrity
Understand what is right, just and fair
Direction - finding the right way to go (I hear the Lord saying, “I will stay close to you, instructing and guiding you along the pathway for your life. I will advise you along the way and lead you forth with my eyes as your guide. So don’t make it difficult; don’t be stubborn when I take you where you’ve not been before. Don’t make me tug you and pull you along. Just come with me!” - Psalm 32:8-9 TPT)
Make wise choices
Safety - wisdom saves you from evil
The verses that spoke to me:
"Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. 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." (Proverbs 2:2-6 NLT)
I must tune into, lean into, God's wisdom. It's available to me. God's not going to force me to get wisdom but will continually remind me its' here for me. I must make it my priority. I desire His wisdom, insight, knowledge, and understanding so I will seek it daily.
Lord, help me to fine tune my ears to wisdom and concentrate on understanding. I am crying out and searching for Your insight and understanding. With them, I will know what it means to fear (reverence and respect), You while gaining more knowledge of You. In this Abba, let Your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven through my interactions with others. All I need is found in You!
