My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding —
indeed, if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
Father, I choose to accept Your Word. Help me meditate and memorize Your Words so I may store Your commands within me. Whenever You speak, I will turn a listening ear to You. Grant me wisdom so I may understand Your Words. Create in me a deep desire for Your insight and understanding in the same way I will look for hidden treasures. Give me an expectant heart that if these will be my attitude towards You and Your Words, I will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
