Knowing God: Intentional Pursuit
My [daughter], if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding,
And 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 hidden treasure,
Then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.
For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. ~Proverbs 2:1-6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil...
Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops... ~Proverbs 3:5-9
Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. ~Proverbs 4:8
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a [girl] who fears the LORD is to be praised. ~Proverbs 31:30
One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and ot seek him in his temple. ~Psalm 27: 4
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. ~Psalm 139:14
