“The sayings of Agur son of Jakeh—an inspired utterance. This man’s utterance to Ithiel: ‘I am weary, God, but I can prevail. Surely I am only a brute, not a man; I do not have human understanding. I have not learned wisdom, nor have I attained to the knowledge of the Holy One. Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Whose hands have gathered up the wind? Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is the name of his son? Surely you know!’”

Proverbs 30:1-4

A man named Agur was speaking. His honesty is revealing.

He was weary. Weary of what? Could it have been his fight against God? In truth, we are all fighting against God until we surrender our lives to Him.

Agur acknowledged his own sinfulness. “I am only a brute.” He had not learned wisdom because it comes from knowing God. He had not yet acquired knowledge of the Holy One because that comes through a personal relationship with God.

Nothing in life is more important. Nothing should demand our dedication more than seeking to know the Lord. And it appears that Agur was on the right path, asking the right questions.

The Bible tells us that if we will seek God with all of our hearts, we will find Him.

Lord, Thank You, that when we seek to know You, You are easily found in Jesus.
