|SCRIPTURE TEXT: “If you look for(wisdom) ass for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” — Proverbs 2:4-5|
The knowledge of God is obtained by the wisdom of God, and the wisdom of God is found in the word of God. Jesus is the word, so when we see Him, we see not only our Savior but also our God. Jesus became flesh and walked among us so He could, among other things, teach us the knowledge of God. So read the four gospels. You will observe the knowledge of God lived out in your Lord
You will learn Obedience by understanding and applying His teachings. Obtaining the knowledge of God and integrating it into your life are not passive exercises. Transformation occurs through passionate prayer as you earnestly seek to understand Jesus’ words and actions. Knowledge of God is food that satisfies the soul. It is a divine diet of grace and truth.
Like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect in respect to salvation (1 Peter 2:2). You read and receive the Word of God so you can be transformed by the knowledge of God. Wisdom is the way to knowing God. It is discovered through toil and trust, intimacy, hard work and Heaven’s illumination. Just as if you were mining the precious metals of silver and gold, you will find the knowledge of God in the discipline and determination of digging out truth that may be covered over by the rubble of unbelief.
You rise up early so you can meditate in the mine shaft with your Master Jesus, and He shows you the way. As you humbly receive the knowledge of God, let others benefit from the richness of your discovery. Invest wisdom in others for the sake of God’s Kingdom. You can begin by being a spiritual leader at work and home.
To Ponder: How can I use my knowledge of God to bless and encourage others?
