Re:Verse passage – Proverbs 2:1-15 (day three)

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.”

Both the Old Testament and the New Testament teach that you will find what you seek. Will the search take as long as your entire life? It might. Will seeking prove hard? It will. Time and effort are characteristic of any quest. Otherwise, you might not even know what you’ve found or why it’s important. Time will give you room to contemplate and to grow in your ability to recognize what it is you seek. And effort will reveal your longings, leading you to understand the you God has made. When you find the wisdom you’ve looked for, you’ll be ready for it, and you will treasure it. This is God’s word to you.
