Day 2 // Hidden Treasures

Proverbs 2

The Benefits of Wisdom

1 My child, listen to what I say,

and treasure my commands.

2 Tune your ears to wisdom,

and concentrate on understanding.

3 Cry out for insight,

and ask for understanding.

4 Search for them as you would for silver;

seek them like hidden treasures.

5 Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord,

and you will gain knowledge of God.

6 For the Lord grants wisdom!

From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

7 He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest.

He is a shield to those who walk with integrity.

8 He guards the paths of the just

and protects those who are faithful to him.

    THANK YOU for Pastor Kerry for this awesome daily challenge! I started with the 21 Days of encountering Christ and have continued with the P31…

    THANK YOU Lord for helping me discover wisdom in your word!

    v.3 cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. So often I get caught up in prayers asking Him to help me work it out yet I need to know He will grant me insight and understanding in life to work it out myself with His Word as my guide and Sword…kind of like the”push while you pray” part from Steven Furtic’s Sun Stand Still book.

    Solomon’s words of wisdom are truth. But, we have all fallen. We’ve all made unwise decisions. Yet we don’t have to be doomed! Our hope is in Christ who died to give us life anew! He is the God of Second Chances that Pastor Kerry reminded us of. We simply need to ask forgiveness and our great big God will share His wisdom for how we can move forward.

    Now that we’re exploring chapter 2, it is REALLY making sense to me that awe of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. How could we cry out for wisdom (Proverbs 2:3) if we didn’t first know who we had to cry out to? How can He be our shield (Proverbs 2:7) if we do not first have a great respect and awe for Him, and have Him in our lives?
    The Lord’s word is awesome. Every bit of it! :)
