    I love those who love me;
        those who search hard for me will find me.

Amos 5:4: God wants us to seek Him. He wants to give us life eternal. 

James 1:5,6: "If any of you lacks wisdom, let Him ask God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let Him ask in faith, without doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind."

Job 28:12,28: "But where can wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding? And to the man he said, 'Behold the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom. And to depart from evil is understanding.'"

Jeremiah 29:12: "Then you will call upon me and go and pray to me, and I will listen to you"

2 Chronicles 15:4: " When in their trouble they turned to the Lord God of Israel, and sought Him, He was found by them."

Zechariah 2:3: "Seek the Lord all you meek of the earth who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord's anger."

John 14:21: Jesus said, "He who has my commandments and keeps them, it is He who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by My Father and I will love Him and manifest Myself to Him."

We find wisdom in God's words in the Bible. We find God's companionship in prayer and meditation on His words. We ask God's help in understanding. God always answers prayers. In His time and in His way He attends to our needs. 

Study the life of Jesus. Emulate Him. Be submissive to God.
