I’m going on a dig this summer.
It’s not an archeological dig, where I sift through dirt and rocks and soil for relics or arrowheads or dinosaur bones. It’s a theological one, where I sift through verses and passages and books for spiritual truths and treasures.
I’ve decided that I don’t want to just take for granted what I’ve come to believe. I don’t want to simply accept something because someone important or influential says I should. I want to know what God says and what God wants me to see.
I’ll need His help. I’ll need Him to shine a light on the dark things, the things that are difficult to see. Then I’ll need Him to open my eyes so that I can understand the things I find.
I’m not sure there will be any major surprises or developments. It may be that I’ll find what I knew was there all along.
But the only way I’ll know is to dig. For myself.
I meditate within my heart, and my spirit makes diligent search. Psalm 77:6
If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. Proverbs 2:4-5
Search from the book of the LORD, and read; Isaiah 34:16
And I set my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all that is done under heaven; Ecclesiastes 1:13
Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law. Psalm 119:18
And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures. Luke 24:45
…the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints; Ephesians 1:18
