“My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding – indeed, 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 find the knowledge of God.” Proverbs 2:1-5.

God gave Solomon wisdom.

There is so much in these verses that appeal to me.
It starts with an eagerness to know God better..
I am struck with the need for passion. I cannot be a “casual” seeker. I need to be “crying aloud” and “calling out” for more awareness of God.
Too often I want to sit reclined waiting for God to drop by. God wants my pursuit of Him to be active.
I confess to wanting to know God better. I want as much of Him in me as is possible.
Will I chase after Him with persistence? Will I commit to knowing Him better each day? Will I deliberately set myself up to gain a better understanding of Him? So many questions!
God is where He is. Will I move toward Him?
“Lord, wonderful passage. I want more of You. I seek You now and during this day. I ask for moments in which You are all I’m thinking about. I ask for moments in which I gain insights from You. You are all I need. Fill me, Father.”
God tells us how to know Him better. Will we take action?
