Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – February 9, 2020
If you look for it as 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 not only see our Savior but our God. Jesus became flesh and walked among us so He could, among other things, teach us the knowledge of God. So read the red letters in the gospels of Christ. 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 life transformation are not passive exercises. They come from passionate prayer, earnestly seeking to understand the words written in red. 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 to salvation” (1 Peter 2:2 NASB).
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, industry and intimacy, hard work and heaven’s illumination. Like the precious metals of silver and gold, the knowledge of God is found in the discipline and determination of digging out truth that may be covered over by the dirt 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, make known to others the richness of your discovery. Invest wisdom in others for the sake of God’s kingdom. Perhaps you start by being the spiritual leader at work and home.
“Then on the second day the heads of fathers’ households of all the people, the priests and the Levites were gathered to Ezra the scribe that they might gain insight into the words of the law” (Nehemiah 8:13 NASB).
Dear Lord, lead me in your word to know you better to love you more earnestly and to highly value knowledge of you, in Jesus’ name, amen.
How can I use my knowledge of God to bless and encourage others?
