We Are Kings & Queens
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of Kings.
For a while now I have been looking closely at Proverbs 25:2, and the reason is that this verse is a challenge and an encouragement. The first line is a challenge; it says that God conceals matters and it is an act of glory. To me this implies that learning and growing in understanding is not going to be easy. God conceals matter to show His glory. The next line is an encouragement to take up the challenge. It is saying that to find what is concealed is glorious. It does not stop there though. It is not simply glorious, it is the glory of kings. If we search things out that God conceals we can share in the glory of kings. That truth along with all the blessings that wisdom and understanding bring make fighting and searching for wisdom worth every effort.
In Romans 8 it tells us that we would be co-heirs with Christ. We are sons and daughters of God that makes us kings and queens as Jesus is. Not to say we are on the same level, but to say that we are royalty when we come into a relationship with God. We have the honor to search out those things that God has hidden. We have the privilege to see and understand more and more as we grow closer to God. We can experience glory given from God to grow in wisdom.
In Matthew 16 Jesus said that Peter is blessed because His divinity was revealed to Peter by God not by man. It is the glory of God to conceal things but also to give us revelations to understand what He has hidden. I think the glory comes from that fact that those things we do search out and uncover are gifts given to us by God himself. What greater honor and glory can someone ask for than a gift from the creator of the universe. God gives us so many gifts. He has given us Jesus, grace, love, provisions, life, choice, breath, fellowship, and wisdom. It is so overwhelming to think about the honor it is to have so many gifts from God. We have been allowed to share in the glory of God and that is so overwhelming. We are all Kings and Queens in Christ and it is our glory to search out the matters hidden by God to show and experience His glory.
