Today’s Key Scripture
“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter.”
— Proverbs 25:2
God’s glory is concealed through His Word, but the believer, as a kingly priest, can see His glory revealed by careful searching through prayer and Bible study.
The Bible is truly a treasure to be discovered, and these deep truths cannot always be mined by merely scratching on the surface. Yet when we study the Bible with an open and prayerful mind, it’s truly an amazing adventure to see all God has provided. Everywhere, it seems, the Father has given guideposts that point toward the ultimate treasure, His Son, Jesus Christ.
The psalmist wrote, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105, KJV). Likewise, it is written, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
To mine these eternal riches, even as with earthly jewels or precious ore, we are required to dig beneath the surface. That’s why it is so important to pray without ceasing, asking our Father to give supernatural wisdom as we search the Word for fresh, priceless, life-giving resources every day!
A Prayer for Today
O God, Author of eternal light, I ask You to be a lamp to my feet and a light to my path throughout today and all my life. I want to search Your Word that every step in my life is illuminated by You. I pray today that You will impart supernatural wisdom to me. And with that wisdom, I seek to praise You continually. May the meditations that flow from Your throne room pour through my life in everything I do. I pray all this in Your name, Master Jesus. amen.
