Proverbs 2:2 –5 – making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding;  yes if you call for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.

Observation-

Proverbs 2 and these beginning verses tell us if we are going to be a growing believer, then we need to seek wisdom.  Wisdom from the Lord is not something that is going to come to us without action on our part.  If we listen, open our heart, ask for instruction and search for wisdom like the treasure that it is then we gain understanding of the fear of the Lord.

Application –

I can’t sit around idly and think that I am going to be filled with wisdom and the knowledge of God.  I must seek wisdom by listening to godly counsel, reading the word of God and spending time with Him.  The development of wisdom will parallel my walk with Jesus. Now, if I am not seeking the wisdom of God, I am left with the insights of the world to shape my thoughts.  That is a dangerous position as I will be unaware of the dangers lurking that ultimately lead to destruction.

Prayer –

Father,

Thank you for the truth in your word.  Let me seek your wisdom, have a fear of you as I grow in my walk with Jesus.  Have the Spirit guide me and give me understanding .
