Prov: Finding the Knowledge of God

Recommended Posts

FINDING THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD

Pr 2:1-5  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, and 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.

Listening to what God says with an application-oriented mindset shows that one understands the fear of the LORD. Notice the verbs here:
 


The Proverb Series

 

  • One needs to ACCEPT what God says. For some will read the Bible but not accept what it says.
  • One needs to STORE UP his commands. Scripture memory, for example, is a good application.
  • One needs to TURN their ears to wisdom. Taking time and effort to listen.
  • And to APPLY your heart. Bible Study without applications is not really Bible Study.
  • And to CALL OUT and CRY ALOUD - one application being to pray for insight.
  • And to LOOK and SEARCH as for hidden treasure. Jesus spoke of the kingdom of God being like a "treasure hidden in a field". Matt 13:44
  • This is Worthy 1

Finding the intimate knowledge of God , you have to search for it as a hidden treasure . You have to spent long hours in your search,  you have to be diligent about it. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek after Him. 

He will then reward you with more of Himself. The intimate knowledge of God is the ultimate for the human spirit.  Those who know their God will be strong and do exploit.

You cant cultivate the oil of intimacy on the run.
