Give Yourself Fully to It
How are you doing in your pursuit of wisdom? Your soul thirsts for understanding, so from what source do you seek it?
We have many options: Facebook, family, friends, pastors, books, O Magazine, talk shows and CNN…
I love the Bible’s call to us concerning wisdom:
Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. She will set a garland of grace on your head and present you with a crown of splendor (Prov. 4:5-9).
Get…Love…Get…Get…Esteem…Embrace… Six times we are told action to take concerning wisdom, and six times we are told that wisdom rewards. The writer even assigns greater value to the pursuit of understanding above anything else.
Would you dare to pray an audacious prayer throughout 2015? Ask the Father to increase your love for Him and to give you a greater hunger for His Word. Through His answering, you will embark on an incomparable journey of getting and loving wisdom as you embrace the All-Knowing One.
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better” (Ephesians 1:17).
