17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.

God’s Word and God’s wisdom is not beyond our reach. Sometimes it is lying right in front of us. Sometimes it is buried, hidden. But it is never out of our reach. God promises us that those who seek after Him and His wisdom will find it!

“But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deut. 4:29. And again, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jer. 29:13.

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.” Mt. 13:44. Do you mine the scriptures for the precious jewels that it contains? Do you seek God’s wisdom as one seeking a buried treasure that is beyond all worth? God’s promises are yes and amen. They are sure and true. His Word will never return empty but will accomplish all that it was sent out to do. You can count on it!

What keeps you from seeking God’s wisdom in the pages of His Word? What keeps you from holding onto the truths you find? Have you experienced His love through His promises and through the pages of Scripture? What does it feel like to be loved in this way? Is this something worth hanging onto? What’s it going to take?
