(Proverbs 1-2, 1 Corinthians 12)
“yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” (Proverbs 2:3-5)
We aren’t meant to box the air. We weren’t designed to wander. God designed us in and for a purpose, namely to be conformed to the image of His Son. Jesus wasn’t aimless. He came to destroy the works of the devil. He came to reveal the Father. He came that we would have life and life in abundance.
We know all this, and yet so many of us feel out of sync. We are not sure what to do or where to go. We’ve spent decades circling the same mountain, trying to discover our true north. There must be something better than this!
True seeking is true north. There is nothing passive about really seeking. Searching for God takes effort and focus. It means saying no to lesser pursuits. There is an obsessive quality presented in the picture of this Proverb, a man searching for hidden treasure. There is nothing aimless about this kind of pursuit. Stop wandering around the mountain. Seek the Lord! Search Him out. Your real destiny can only be found in Him.
