Most people that have any interest in spiritual things would agree that they would love to know and understand God. Amazingly, God replied,—“I want you to know me. Here’s what I will do—
- I will make myself evident in all of creation.
- I will send men to speak on my behalf and keep you informed about how to navigate life.
- I will send the Messiah to let you see me for who I am, in human terms.
- I will put my thoughts and instruction in writing so you can see how to live a free and abundant life.
- Finally, when we connect, I will send my spirit to guide you to the truth of who I am.”
From a pure objective perspective, few would argue with the statement that God has come well past halfway to help men know him. The greatest benefit of wisdom–is grasping these facts and seeking God in all these places. Solomon knew that there simply is no short cut to knowing God. It is a lifetime pursuit that pays amazing and eternal dividends. He calls us to seek God and allow God to reveal himself to us; and, make our lives full and meaningful.
It is still, however, our choice. On a daily basis—we have to choose to seek and follow God. We can never grow complacent and allow the world to sneak into our lives and replace God as our primary focus. When we do—as in any other relationship, we begin to lose touch with wisdom and who God is and miss out on all the blessings Solomon lists as its benefits. Help me, Lord–to seek you and your wisdom—each and every day.
God Bless You!
