Seeking Wisdom

Today, I take a little detour from my James study series. I share a verse breakdown of Proverbs 2:1-6. This section of scripture is rich with the things we are to do as we seek the Lord for wisdom, understanding and knowledge.

Breaking this verse down helped me understand that seeking to understand the things of the Lord is more than just asking, there is faith, obedience, effort and perseverance involved. It reminds us that godly wisdom is to be sought after as a precious thing, a treasure that may be hidden but is within our reach if we go to our source – the Lord.

This passage also reminds us that there is a promise of a blessing of having our spiritual hearts and minds opened to comprehend that which the spirit speaks and reveals to us and what may appear as foolishness to those of the world. The Lord is our one true source for wisdom and understanding and as James 1 tells us – those who ask Him for wisdom, he gives generously and without finding fault.

God Bless

    1. I so agree, the book of proverbs is so rich with wisdom. And intentionality when it comes to pursuing wisdom or the things of God does play a key role in our perseverance of it.

  1. Manu, thank you so much for sharing this. Sometimes when we read Scripture, the words might β€œgo in one ear and out the other” so to speak. But when you break it down like this, and search for hidden meaning behind the words, it truly helps us to gain a better understanding of what God is trying to relay to us. I really love how you did this. And thank you once again for reminding me that I need to be better at scripture mapping!! I love what you said about β€œgodly wisdom is to be sought after as a precious thing.” Sometimes we face the issues of life in our own wisdom and strength. This post and these words from the Bible remind me that I need to seek God’s wisdom and strengthen, no matter that I am facing. Blessings, dear friend! πŸ€—πŸ’œ

    1. I agree Bridget, there are times when I read scripture and I really don’t feel like anything is sticking to my heart or even brain. We do need to seek godly wisdom in dealing with all that life throws at us.
      I am glad you liked this.
      Thank you so much my friend. Have a wonderful weekend πŸ€—πŸ’™

  2. Manu, this study reminds me to seek after God’s wisdom with all my heart and not my own desires. In these days and times, we are in very big need of exercising wisdom, especially before we open our mouths. Thanks for sharing this. πŸ’œ

  3. Manu, I love how you diagramed the Proverb verses; it highlights the meaning and gives insight to the passage. May we turn our ears to His wisdom and open our hearts to understanding His way. Thanks for sharing! Have a wonderful week! πŸ’—πŸ’πŸŒΊ

  4. Godly wisdom is of great treasure because it helps us understand the fear of God and remember (the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom) and it also helps us understand the knowledge of God. How precious it is to understand the heart of God? That’s like a direct ticket to Heaven🀣and again remember when Solomon asked for wisdom he was given wealth too. So wealth is also a bonus 😲. More reason why we need to pursue that Godly wisdom jealously. Thanks for the breakdown sis. Been feeling unwell lately that’s why you have not heard from me for a while
