Principle # 7 – The wise man will most often figure out what God’s will is.
Proverbs 2:2-10 Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding; For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will discern the fear of the Lord And discover the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom….Then you will discern righteousness and justice And equity and every good course. For wisdom will enter your heart
“You will discern every good course” because you sought for wisdom like gold and you found it.
We used to hide colored hard boiled eggs in our yard when our kids were young at Easter time, and they had a blast looking for them. We didn’t hide them to hard because we wanted them to find them. Check this cool verse out.
Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
God hides His perfect plan and will from me, He doesn’t hide it to hard, because He wants me to find it, and I will find it if I have wisdom. The main source of wisdom is reading, studying, and memorizing the wisdom of God, the Bible.
Psalms 119:97-100 O how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, For they are ever mine. I have more insight than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the aged, Because I have observed Your precepts.
The person who wants to consistently know what the will of God is for his life in every detail will faithfully read the Bible. I read 12 chapters every single day, I memorize 4 new verses every week and review and meditate on all verses memorized every month. I am seeking a growing relationship with God and I am seeking for wisdom.
