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.
