Proverbs 25 writes: "It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter. As the heavens for height and the earth for depth, so the heart of kings is unsearchable. Take away the dross from silver, and it will go to the silversmith for jewelry."
Matthew 16 writes: "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church."
Ephesians 3 writes: "For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles - if indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you, how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets."
A mine for silver and a place for gold, silver and copper, concealed matters to be searched, things not revealed ny flesh and blood but by the Father in Heaven, mysteries not made known to some but made known to others... quite mysterious and intriguing in a way but true Kingdom-issues regulating Heaven's influence and advancement on Earth through individuals, families and churches and affecting communities, professional environments, educational institutions, societal structures, and even cultures and civilisations.
An open heaven is not an excuse for laziness and passivity. At the opposite it animates us to walk further, stand stronger, connect cleaner, pay more attention.
The issues pertaining to the Kingdom will not rain on you, so to say. You are not a vegetable.
Decide to dig deeper. Get started, develop the mind of a researcher. You know the mine is there because the Spirit has led you to the 'place', but you might not know what is inside that rock. And as you dig, you might know how to proceed or how to continue. Maybe you go a little left, then a little right. Keep digging while your ear is open to the voice of the Spirit, while your heart is teachable. Even you don't get it the first time, at least you are developing a Kingdom-mentality. At least you grow some new abilities and the capacity to pursue. At least you exercise the muscles of your soul and spirit and learn disciplines which will most probably useful in the future of your life and walk in the Kingdom.
Remember: 'The glory of kings is to search out a matter.'
In the coming blogs I will write about when it's time to dig deeper, and how to do it.
