Love you all, praying for you.
God has Good for you today! Things He wants to show you, tell you, reveal to you, give you, things He wants to give to others through you. He wants to grow you today, so He can grow you further tomorrow. Praying that you will live each hour today at His direction - redeeming the time.
God teaching me recently... I had seen this verse many times before - but God wanted me to go deeper so I could understand how that applied to you and me.
Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, to search out a matter is the glory of kings. (NLT - It is God's privilege to conceal things, and the king's privilege to discover them.) There are things God has concealed - that He wants you to discover. Conceal - to hide by covering, to keep close or secret, to forbear to disclose, withhold from utterance or declaration, to hide from observation, to withhold from sight. Why does God do this. It is His glory. kabod <kaw-bode> weight, weightiness, heaviness, splendor, copiousness (abundance, splendor, great quantity, full supply). Glory is related to glorify (to make bigger in one's eyes). Concealing a matter adds to His weight, his reputation. But it is also the glory of kings to search it out. (a thing - a matter - something spoken of, the cause, counsel, advice - dabar <daw-bar> to arrange words, to speak, declare tell. What does God want us to search out? the things of His Word - for this life. His counsel, His wisdom and secret things He has declared.
To search out. chaqar <khaw-kar> to penetrate, hence to examine intimately from the inside. to find out, make search, investigate thoroughly, sound (find the depths of). To investigate from the inside - like the Swat Robot used by the Military to penetrate a building to provide an inside look, video surveillance from the inside - to fully determine how to proceed in the conquering of it. So God has hidden things, to add to His glory and establish and grow His reputation, that He wants us to fully investigate from the inside. It is the glory of kings to do this. But I'm not a king...
Actually, you are. This is the word used for king: melek <meh-lek> It means more than just a king of old. It means anyone who reigns, or rules, or leads, or has jurisdiction over some area - and particularly it refers to one - beginning their leadership, the establishing of them in this leadership role, and the recognition by others - that is required to establish them in their position. Wow! It establishes you in authority. It comes from malek - to reign - inceptively to ascend the throne. (not one that's been there a long time, but just getting established in the role) 1828 Inceptive: from incipio - to begin - the beginning point. (like a dot is the beginning point of a line, or a line is the beginning point of a surface). Also to induct - from Latin Induco - which means "in - lead" or to begin or introduce as to a benefice or an office. To put in actual possession of an ecclesiastical living or any other office, with the customary form and ceremonies! Like being inducted into the Hall of Fame! You're not in the Hall of Fame, until the induction ceremony. You give your Hall of Fame Speech, like Jerry Rice, and from that moment on, you're a Hall of Famer for life! It's like the beginning of your 'reign' from this point on with all the privileges and benefits that accompany it.
So what God is trying to tell us? SEARCH IT OUT. Find my WORD, my counsel! Dig Deeper - Fully investigate my counsel from the inside - because it will establish you in the beginning of your reign - over the leadership and jurisdiction that I have appointed you for! Wow. This is the beginning of the victory and authority that God wants you to operate in - in your life - and this is what establishes you in it. It is the honor and glory of kings to search it out. It is the beginning, the establishing, and the making obvious to all around you - Yep - from now on... Hall of Famer! (the leadership role - the victorious authority - that God has called you to walk in!)
Praying for you - that You Would Never Miss PRISM - on any day! That is the first step of Searching Out - fully investigating from the inside - things HE has hidden for HIS GLORY - that He want you to search out - to begin, and to establish you - in all that He has for you. And it is SO GOOOOD.
God, would you give them a love for Your Word and Your wisdom, a thirst for Your Presence, and Praise, and a hunger and habit of Obedience. That like Jesus, they would do everything that you want them to say and do. That You O God - will be GLORIFIED, and that they would be fully established - In Jesus Name.
Love you all,
