Session 30

Do you believe God is awesome?

Read: Proverbs 30

Like Agur, the author of Proverbs 30, we’ve all hit a wall where we realize we can’t answer the big questions of life. While we humans like to think there isn’t a problem we can’t solve, Agur finally had to admit he was unable to grow wise or find God on his own. All of the apologetics and religion classes in the world can’t do what the Holy Spirit does. 

“‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.’ But God has revealed it to us by the Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God” (1 Corinthians 2:10). 

God, through the Holy Spirit, reveals Himself to us and gives us wisdom. And once He does, we start to see His greatness in nature and in His Word (Proverbs 30:3-6). God made the world and is intimately familiar with parts of the universe humans will never discover. God is so holy that His words are “flawless” and able to protect those who trust in them. 

None of us can make that claim. So why would we want to look to anyone else for wisdom and understanding?

The realization of God’s greatness drove Agur to adoration. In the only prayer in Proverbs, Agur asks God to give him a meaningful life and to provide what he needs to get by every day. 

This was a dramatically different attitude than the society he lived in. When Agur looked around, he didn't see people who were awestruck with God. Instead, he saw a generation that looks a lot like ours: disrespectful, self-righteous, prideful, arrogant, and fiercely oppressive (Proverbs 30:11-14). 

The same thing happens to us when we get a glimpse of how truly amazing God is. Our lives are forever changed by the realization that God is perfect and we are not. Because it’s only when we acknowledge God’s majesty that we will humble ourselves and begin to learn from Him. 

Reflect: 

  • How did God first reveal Himself to you? If you can’t remember a time when you put God first in your life, we’d love to tell you how. Connect with someone here
  • What are a few qualities about God that leave you awestruck? Tell Him today.
