Proverbs 2:3-4 (NASB) “3 For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; 4 If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures…”
If your life depended upon a doctor to do surgery, would you want someone who just went through medical school looking for shortcuts and not asking questions if they didn’t understand? Would you rather want someone who studies with their mind fully engaged? The answer is obvious; we would want someone who has given all they have at learning the skill of surgery and being a doctor who can handle emergencies dealing with our health issues. So, why would we want anything less for our “spiritual health”? If reading the Bible, meditating upon it deeply, asking questions as we read, and seeking the wisdom of those blessed as pastors and teachers of His Word would all help us in our Christian walk, why aren’t we doing that? Maybe we are, but to be honest with myself, I can go deeper. How about you? There are so many promises and advice laying just beneath the pages of our Bibles waiting for us to unfold them. I pray you go DEEP with God as you read His Word each day. You are reading each day aren’t you, crying out for discernment, and lifting your voice for understanding?
