Receive and Treasure
It’s one thing to receive something unlooked for and another when you receive something you have diligently sought for…
its means more…
its a Treasure.
If we seek for wisdom and instruction like we would search for a hidden treasure of silver and gold, we will wind up finding it and becoming rich in ways money can’t provide. It would keep us from evil, from heading down the wrong path and from those who would take us there.
But to seek means to look, not for conformation for what you want to do, but for instruction concerning what to do.
To seek means to look, not for thoughts you had yesterday but for instruction and understanding for where those thoughts have brought you today.
To seek means to look, not for concepts and more catch phrases about God, but to know God better personally, to be still and listen for His instruction.
to seek means to ask God…
What do I need to learn to day?
What wisdom do I need to hear?
Please show me that Lord, open my eyes and ears. I want to receive it….
for it is a treasure that is beyond my years…
a light to my path which keeps me out of the dark.”
