A searching heart
Proverbs 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.
I never really began to understand God’s word until I really needed God’s word. When my life started falling apart, when I realised that I couldn’t handle it on my own, I started searching for God with a desperate hunger. I switched my car’s radio to worship music. Instead of watching TV, I listened to sermons. Instead of going out on a Saturday night, I went to bed early so that I could head to church early the next day. I was desperate to hear God’s promise and word over my life, so I spent time within the Bible.
In that desperate need, He met me there. I didn’t have the go far to find Him and understand who He is. I really, really needed Him and I was expectant in finding Him.
Are you trying to understand scripture? Are you interested in finding out more about God? Are you finding it really difficult?
Our God is a jealous God. In His mysterious ways, He loves to be sought after. So make the choice today to really seek Him with all of your heart. Get hungry for His word and learning more about Him. I guarantee you’ll find Him and fall in love more than ever before.
