Biblical Meaning Of Proverbs 25:2 That You Need To Know , God has given his children the honour to search out a matter, and this is because he has made them kings and priests and given them his Holy Spirit to guide them into all truth so that they can know the truth about every matter that is concealed, and since the Spirit of God knows the mind of God and can search out the deep things of God about every hidden matter (1Corinthians 2:10-11), it is important for God’s children to submit to the Holy Spirit and ask for his help in other to search out and as well know every matter of truth that is needed to set them free and also bring God’s blessing upon them.
Since the truth is always concealed (hidden), and God’s word is truth (John 17:17), children of God have the honour to search out God’s word in other to know his will that is good, acceptable, and perfect for every matter, and Proverbs 25:2 gives a deeper meaning of it which I want to share with you in this article.
Here is the Biblical explanation of Proverbs 25:2.
” It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.”
According to the first part of the scripture given above, ” It is the glory of God to conceal a thing”, means that when God conceals or hides a thing, it brings glory to him, and this is because God is glorified when the things he has concealed is revealed for the good of man, and since the things of God are his truth and his truth is his word, and his word is light, God commands his children to let their light (his word and truth) shine forth so that people can see their works, and glorify their Father (God) which is in heaven.
” But the honour of kings is to search out a matter.”, this means that searching out a matter brings honour to kings, and since God’s children are kings and priests, every matter that is searched out by them through the help of the Holy Spirit will bring them honour. In other words, people will honour them because of the matter of truth they have searched out or discovered. In 1Kings 3, the truth about the matter between the two harlots as to whom among them owns the child that is alive was searched out by Solomon and that brought him honour and fame, and the people also fear him. Solomon was able to do this with the help of the spirit of wisdom and understanding which God gave to him.
As Children of God, it is our honour to also cooperate with the Holy Spirit and by the operation of the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, we will be able to search out every matter according to the will of God that will bring glory to God and as well bring his blessing upon us.
