Hello precious child, there is something interesting for you to learn here today. We are continuing with the wise words of king Solomon from the book of proverbs.
Our verse for today is
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. – Proverbs 2:3-7
This verse talks about the importance of searching for wisdom and how we as God’s children should seek after wisdom.
Our study verse first of tells us that if you and I want to be wise, we can’t just sit and wish to be wise, we have to seek for it, look for it, search for it, and that’s how we get knowledge and be wise children.
See the words used in this verses, the Bible says;
1. We should cry after knowledge
2.We should lift up our voice for understanding.
3.We should look for it as silver
4.We should search for it like an hidden treasure.
All these words are powerful.
It means we have to actively do some certain things to be wise, our effort is need to get wisdom.
The Bible says, until we look for wisdom, we won’t find it.
When we seek to be wise, that’s when we will find wisdom.
How will this happen?
For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. – Proverbs 2:6-7
God will give it to us, and he gives it out of his mouth. This means through his words, and words are found in the Bible
How interesting is that?
God had laid up wisdom for us in the Bible, these words are to guide and direct our everyday lives.
All we need to do is read his word like searching for treasures, that’s how to get wise dear.
Lord Jesus, I receive the grace to search the word of God like treasures in Jesus name. Amen.
Read your Bible today.
I am committed to reading and search my Bible everyday. I am wise in Jesus name.
