“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.” —Proverbs 25:2
Have you ever thought much about the Glory of God? I hadn’t until recently. Lately though, the more I study God’s Word, the more I am struck by just how great our God is and how much He is glorified through His creation. Every flower that blooms, every sparrow that flies, every person that enjoys the blessings of this life—all testify to a God with an endless imagination and an incredible love for what He has made. It all reflects His glory.
Another thing that I recently realized is this: God is glorified in us through our joy and through our sorrow. Sometimes, we hurt in this life, but God is not mocked nor His reputation marred. After all, we chose to rebel against God in the first place. Rather, He is glorified in our sorrow when we turn to Him for help because “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6)
