God Gets the Glory Because He Knows More Than You Do
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings (Proverbs 25:2 NIV).
I wonder about the Queen of Sheba, who went to visit King Solomon. She had heard of his great wisdom, and when she arrived she realized that Solomon was far wiser than she had even imagined. I wonder if she was more popular when she went home, because she had been to see the “wise one.” That’s what leaders do, isn’t it? They search out wisdom. They try to find answers. They seek knowledge.
When I served in an elected government position, the old saying was that “knowledge is power,” and it’s true. The fact that I sometimes knew something made others want me around. (Too bad that doesn’t happen anymore). Kings search out information because it builds them up and gives them more fame.
God knows everything. Nothing can escape God’s ability to understand. Do you have a problem? He has the answer. Do you need a solution? He has it. Is there a trial too deep for you to comprehend? He’s already got the remedy mapped out for you. Is there something you don’t understand? He does!
Doesn’t it make God special that we don’t understand all things? God gets glory because He is God. I know that sounds simple, but it’s so true. God is bigger, better, and wiser than anyone or anything you can imagine. That makes Him special. It gives Him glory. All the glory He receives is all because He is God!
Can you trust a God like that today? Could the solution to your problems today be more of trusting in His abilities than in trying to find all the answers?
