HIGHER EVERYDAY

TOPIC: BENEFITS OF RESEARCH

TEXT: PROVERBS 25:2

BIBLE TEXT:

"It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of Kings is to search out a matter"

(PROVERBS 25:2).

Through researches, hidden things are discovered and used for the benefit of mankind. Such discoveries include: Louis Pasteur's vaccines against bacteria causing diseases such as rabies and anthrax; and Thomas Edison's invention of the first practical light bulb and motion picture camera. Do not assume, however, that research skills belong only within the ambits of the academia. The great Saints of the old Testament dispensation demonstrated brilliant research skills that yielded incredible results. Gideon conducted a properly designed research, collected data, analyzed them and arrived at a valid conclusion on divine guidance (Judges 6:36-40). When Israel was confronted with famine for three consecutive years, king David embarked upon a spiritual research which extracted divine prescription that ended the affliction (ll Samuel 21:1). Even king Herod researched into where Jesus was prophesied to be born (Matthew 2:1-8).

Our key verse clearly shows that those who would discover the mysteries of God must invest in spiritual research by Bible study and prayers. Therefore, to achieve a rounded success in life, we must develop our spiritual research skills alongside its equivalent. The benefits are invaluable!

QUOTE: Through researches, hidden things are discovered

CHALLENGE: Exploratory prayer is a valid spiritual research technique.

PRAYER: Equip me, O Lord, with seeking skills.

FURTHER READING: 2 SAMUEL 21:1-8; 1 SAMUEL 30:1-19
