February 13 Finding True Wisdom

Proverbs 2:3-6

3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

6 For the Lord giveth wisdom:out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.


Ever been called a know-it-all? Our Heavenly Father literally knows it all. He knows every detail of eternity past and eternity future. He knows the universe, He knows the nations, and He knows the thoughts and intentions of our hearts. He knows our hopes and our faith level. He is called “El Deah” in Hebrew, which is interpreted the God of all knowledge.

One of the great things about our Father is He loves to give. He promises to give us some of His wisdom. Want proof? If you own a Bible you have part of His wisdom and knowledge. But He promises to supply even more as our text promises. One author put it this way:


”God Alone is wise. He makes wisdom available to you, but you must first want it....feel the need of it...yes, REQUIRE it as essential in your life. Then, and only then, are you putting yourself in a position to partake of God’s wisdom and become wise.”


He said cry for my wisdom and knowledge. Seek wisdom like the hidden treasure of silver and I will supply. The other great thing about this all-knowing Father of ours is that we don’t have to worry. God knows what we need and He has good things ahead for His children!
