Understanding Comes By Knowing God
Proverbs 9:10- The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. To learn about the Holy One is understanding. (NLV)
To learn about God is understanding. Matthew 6:33 says to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and that every other thing after that will be added unto us. Therefore, if I put my heart and mind to know about God, I am sure going to receive understanding in my academics when I then study my books. My mind and level of comprehension in all areas afterwards is sure going to increase as a result of the knowledge of God via his words. This is according to our theme text
How true is the above statement, well let’s consider other scriptures to see. In 2 Corinthians 3:18 (AMPC) the bibles states “And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.”
2 Corinthians 3:18 confirm what our theme text is trying to portray to us. It says if we focus/look into the word of God continuously, we will become more and more like him. If this is true and I believe it is, we can confidently say we will grow in understanding in every area of our life. Think about it, do you think there is any mathematical problem or economic problem God cannot understand or resolve? If the answer is no, then if we are said to become like him by studying his word to know more about him, we are automatically going to become as smart and intelligent as Him. Bearing in mind that God created mathematics and economics in the first place there is no arguing about whether we can have understanding of anything we set our heart and mind on.
Get to know more about God and you will become as smart as He is.
