Get Understanding! – Part 1

Proverbs 4:7 says, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” Though wisdom and understanding go hand in hand, they are different and this video will focus more on the importance of getting understanding. The Hebrew word for understanding is “biyn” and it speaks of your action in the house, dividing, getting in between something.” In Genesis 1:4, God uses this word to demonstrate “dividing between something” when He divided the light from the darkness.

When we hear the word understanding we should think of taking action to break the Word down, getting into the details, studying every part, and rightly dividing the Word of truth (2 Tim. 2:15). We should desire to know God, not just on the surface but to really get an understanding of what He said and how He operates. This will help us see and believe that all things will work together for our good (Rom. 8:28). Though you may not see how, why, when, where God will fulfill what He said concerning you, the pieces begin to fit together as you get understanding!
