Pr. 2:2: “So that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding.”
To apply ourselves to understanding the Lord, we must start by looking to Him. How do we do this? The same way we apply ourselves to anything: jobs, school work, sports, etc. We study, we research, we practice. We open the Word, and if we have trouble knowing where to start or focus, we get books that help us study; or we ask for advice from someone else who studies the Word daily and has a relationship with Christ. We dig in and we don’t relent.
To incline our ears to wisdom, we pray. We ask God to open our hearts, minds, and ears to hear His wisdom through His word. We ask God to speak to us, to grow us, and to reveal new things to us. We diligently search the scriptures for more. We find a quiet place, if necessary, where we can be alone with God, and we burrow ourselves in Him and His Word.
There is so much available for us in His Word, and He is happy to share!
