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.
Doesn’t this sound like a letter written from a parent to a child. A parent desperate for their child to follow their instructions and commands that they may be greatly blessed and have a life that is full of blessings. Well that’s because it is!
This is a message from the one true God asking us to accept and embrace his commands, follow his wisdom, apply it deep within our hearts, cry out for him and his will, search for him like we would search for a million dollars! When we do this we will be greatly blessed and finds the knowledge of Him (God). We will hear his voice more easily because we will recognize it. We will know his will because it will be hidden in our hearts. We will be able to find Him!
Seek Him. Accept Him. Turn to Him. Follow Him. Fear Him. Cry out to Him. ……… He will not let you down, he will reward you with his knowledge and understanding.
Lord, help me to seek you and search for you. Help me to make time for you that I might know your voice. Help me to accept your words and store up your commands in my heart. I know it’s not always easy but instill in me the desire to know you more.
