July 28 2016 – God’s matters are for those who really want them & know their worth.

Proverbs 25:2

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,
But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.

Why is it the glory of God to conceal a matter ? Because it displays God’s wisdom.

There are two benefits to God concealing a matter.

One is that it tests how much we want it. It tests our resolve, our hunger, our appetite to get it, only allowing those who really want it to get it.

God only wants us to have what we really want. He doesn’t give us things we want half- heartedly. He honours our wishes. Some one who’s half hearted about something doesn’t really want it.

The other reason God conceals a matter is because of its worth. What God has is too precious to be entrusted to those who’d treat it lightly, inappropriately in terms of its worth. Just as the crown jewels are too precious to give some one who’d treat them lightly, inappropriately in terms of their worth, such as a young child.

God wants us to demonstrate that we know the worth of what He has, so He conceals those things from us. He makes us work hard, pay a price to get them, demonstrating the value we attach to them and thus demonstrating how we’ll treat them.

God’s conceals a matter…….because God’s matters are for those who really want them and know their worth.
