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. For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:1-6 (NIV)
Do you want to know me? I can think of nothing I want more in life. It is the desire of my heart to know you. I don’t just want to know about you either. That is not the same as knowing you. I really want to know you. I don’t want to know you a little bit either. I want to know you intimately. I want to walk through life with you. I want to follow you to wherever you lead me. I want to do whatever you ask of me. How do you think you will come to know me? I will need to make knowing you the priority of my life. I need to seek your insight and understanding and wisdom as if it were more valuable than silver or gold or any other hidden treasure, which by the way, it is. It pleases me that you have this understanding. I only understand what you have revealed to me. The riches of this life do not compare with hearing from you. So, I will draw near to you. I will quiet myself before you. I will listen to all that you have to say to me. How will I speak to you? When will I speak to you? How will you learn to hear my voice? I will meet with you in your word. I will store your word in my heart. I will learn to hear your voice as I listen to your word. What will my word do for you? Your word will give me insight and understanding and wisdom. Your word will give me a deep respect and a reverent awe of you. Your word will change my heart. Your word will transform my mind. Your word will guide the course of my life. Your word will make me able to know and love and follow and serve you. Your word will make me able to live a life that is good and right and pleasing to you. Yes, my word will do all these things in, for, and through you as you allow it to be stored in you. That I will do. That will be very good.
Lord, I will turn my ear to you. I will listen to your voice. I will store up your commands in me. I will listen to your wisdom. I will follow your instruction. I will cry out for insight and understanding that only comes from you. Help me to know and love and follow you. Amen
