129 Your statutes are wonderful;
therefore I obey them.
130 The unfolding of your words gives light;
it gives understanding to the simple.
My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
2 turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding—
3 indeed, if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
4 and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He holds success in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
8 for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
Unfolding. Think about that word for a moment. Maybe your initial thought relates to how you unfold a letter you receive in the mail or the gradual unfolding of a dramatic story. But unfolding is also a beautiful picture of what happens within us as we immerse our hearts and minds with God’s Word.
In the process of unfolding, information is revealed and disclosed. The Word, living and active, reaches into the deepest places of our hearts. Wisdom, insight, and understanding begin to blossom within and overflow into our daily life, as well as the lives of those around us.
The opening up of our hearts and souls to wisdom and understanding brings peace and rejoicing. It turns our hearts toward God and away from empty pursuits and worldly satisfactions. It gives life to our entire existence. This is not for a small few. This unfolding of Truth is available to every heart hungry to know God and experience the power of the living, breathing Word of God in their lives.
As you continue to sit at the feet of Jesus, come with a heart of deep expectation for what the truths of Scripture can bring to life in your own heart and the transformation that will come as you openly receive what the Holy Spirit brings.
It’s all part of the invitation to FLOURISH!
