Diligent Search

"I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search." (Psalm 77:6)

Christopher Columbus is recognized in this country for his bold search across the Atlantic, resulting in the major exploration and colonization of North America. As with many great men, variations abound of his character, but he is widely recognized as a Bible-quoting religious man.

Motivation seems to be the key behind the success of history’s "great" men. Some inner drive captivated the heart of those explorers, inventors, statesmen, generals, and leaders. And so it is with the prophets, priests, and kings of the Kingdom--they were driven by a "burning fire" in their "bones" (Jeremiah 20:9).

Solomon, granted wisdom by God, nonetheless gave his "heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven" (Ecclesiastes 1:13). Excellence does not just happen!

Those Berean Christians who were cited as being more "noble" than the Thessalonians were recognized because they "received the word with all readiness of mind, and |emphasis added| searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so" (Acts 17:11). They listened (passive), but they also searched (active).

Spiritual maturity does not come by mere chronological survival! "Strong meat," the Scripture notes, "belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil" (Hebrews 5:14).

Careful attention to the instructions in the Word and careful observance to follow those instructions, is the only formula for God’s blessing of prosperity and "good success" (Joshua 1:8). HMM III
