It is the glory of the Lord to conceal a thing, but the honour of kings to search out a matter. Prov. 25:2

In this passage there is hidden a secret to coming into authority in God. In Revelation 4:10 it speaks of a people whose testimony is, "and has made us unto our God, kings and priests, and we shall reign on the earth."

My pondering in this scripture has been, is this part of the qualifying to be a king; searching out the hidden things of God. In the process of searching out the matter, and applying what is learned, are the qualities of kingship worked into us.
