Seeking God Daily (Proverbs 8:17-21, and Matthew 7:7)

Seeking God Daily



Good morning, my brothers and sisters in Christ.



Proverbs 8:17-21(NKJV):


"I love those who love me, and those who seek diligently will find me. Riches and honor are with me, enduring riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yes, than fine gold, and my revenue than choice silver. I traverse the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of justice, that I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, that I may fill their treasuries."



This passage personifies wisdom and expresses a reciprocal relationship with those who seek the LORD. It also emphasizes the value of wisdom, equating it with enduring riches and righteousness. The treasure is our relationship with God and our inheritance in the Kingdom of God; he is the only one who can give us spiritual growth. The passage also helps us understand that seeking wisdom diligently is rewarded with spiritual wealth and a sense of justice.



In closing, I would like to add Matthew 7:7 as a biblical parallel for this morning. In Matthew 7:7(NKJV), "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you."



Find the Trinity in Matthew 7:7


We ask in Prayer, which is us speaking to the Father, just as Jesus did, and by step one, we involve the first person of the Trinity.


When we seek the Scriptures, we are seeking God's truth. We will also find God's Son, Jesus Christ, in the Scriptures, which applies to the second person of the Trinity.


When we knock, we are doing God's will, which taps into the third person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, because it's through the Holy Spirit that we imitate and do God's works.



While the context and speakers of each passage differ (Proverbs attributes the words to wisdom, while Matthew records Jesus' teaching), the overall theme of seeking God diligently and being rewarded is a common thread between these verses.



Today's struggle is that I feel no one listens to me. Many people think that I am a Superman, but I'm not. But when the world is not listening, there is always our LORD, and He is actively listening. Just reach out to Him. He always listens to us, even in despair and sadness.



In Christ, love Jared W. Campbell
