“I love them that love Me; and those that seek Me early shall find me… That I may cause those that love Me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.” Proverbs 8:17, 21
The “approbation,” or favor of the Lord rests upon those who have fully yielded their lives to Him, who desire to intimately know Him and are willing to spend time in His presence. The result is that these will be able to recognize His presence and will have “understanding” concerning His ways.
If these qualities are to become a reality in our lives, we also must first learn to “wait upon the Lord.”
“Blessed is the man that hears Me, watching daily at My gates, waiting at the posts of My doors. For whoso finds Me finds life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord.” Proverbs 8:34-35
