Being Receptive to the Word of God: Proverbs 2:1-2

God's Wisdom For Today

Jun 30 2020 • 12 mins

“It’s a biological principle that you will increasingly value whatever you make it a habit to pursue.”   - Chuck Swindoll

Today we cover an overview of Proverbs chapter 2 and the big picture for the verses we’ll be looking at this week. Plus we dig in to the verses below.


Today’s Scripture: Proverbs 2:1-2.


My son, if you accept my words

and store up my commands within you,

listening closely to wisdom

and directing your heart to understanding;  (CSB)


Good friend, take to heart what I'm telling you;

collect my counsels and guard them with your life.

Tune your ears to the world of Wisdom;

set your heart on a life of Understanding.  (MSG)


Raymond C Ortland Jr says, “Proverbs 2 is one of the most helpful passages in the Bible, because it explains what growth and sanctification and renewal--what all of that feels like. This passage explains the psychology of change.”


Today and tomorrow we’ll cover the first four verses which are a series of instructions

John Phillips outlines these verses as:

  • We Must Be Receptive (v 1)
  • We Must Be Responsive (v 2-3)
  • We Must Be Resolute (v 4)


Chuck Swindoll divides it into four disciplines

  • Discipline of the written Word of God (v 1)
  • Discipline of our inner desire (v 2)
  • Discipline of prevailing prayer (v 3)
  • Discipline of daily consistency (v 4)


If you want a place to see and answer the questions I ask in the episode and to keep track of the discoveries you make as we study Proverbs, we include a set of free journal pages for this devotional series in each of our Sunday emails
