Pr. 30:3: “I neither learned wisdom nor have knowledge of the Holy One.”
Every day our priority should be learning more about Him. Ps. 14:2 says, “The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God.”
How do we learn wisdom, have knowledge of the Holy One, and understand? Spend time in the Word. We have to create the time to be with our Savior. He is looking to see if there are any who understand, who seek Him, whose heart is loyal to Him. The Word tells us about God. He gave us the Word so that we might know in whom we have believed. Jesus spoke words of life on this earth and we have them available to us right now. The Lord spoke through prophets and ministers of the gospel and we have those words of knowledge at our disposal at all times. It’s so easy to take that for granted.
Maybe we couldn’t be under Paul’s ministry, but we can read his God-revealed words each day. Maybe we can’t be one of the 12 disciples, but we can be students of Jesus Christ and be a disciple right now. Don’t waste another day allowing time to get away from you. Don’t put off spending time in the Word. Do it now! Put this critical time on your calendar for today. Put in on your calendar for tomorrow, and don’t break the appointment. We are charged a fee for breaking a doctor’s appointment. There are no monetary fees charged for breaking the appointment to read the Word. I guarantee you; however, that when you put something else before getting wisdom from the Word, you are paying a price.
Why have a mediocre walk with the Lord? Why know only the minimum about Him and His Word? This is our God and Savior we’re talking about! Why not soak it all in and overwhelm your soul with His goodness, His mercy, His precepts, and His overwhelming faithfulness? Oh, truly He is more precious than silver and more beautiful than diamonds. Nothing you could ever desire compares with the Lord. Get in the Word today and allow His Holy Spirit to pour over you and teach you all wisdom and knowledge. When you feel the presence of God, you will never regret how you spent your time.
