Day 26 – Leaders Think Broad, Deep and Wide


‘…It is the glory of God to conceal a thing; but the honor of kings is to search out a matter. The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable’ Proverbs 25:1-3

Verse 1 indicated that these are some of the proverbs of Solomon copied out by the men of King Hezekiah of Judah. Every leader needs to give attention to them. 1Kings 4:34 says ‘And there came of all people to hear the Wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom’. Leaders are keen to spend adequate time to search out the mind of God on various matters. It is the honour of kings to search out a matter.

Think through as you meditate on God’s word to search out secrete things of God on each subject. Ps 119:18 says there are wondrous things in the word of God. Be a king as you develop the habit of thinking through in your closet, to search out God’s mind on different issues before you act. The saying goes ‘great leaders are great thinkers’.

Consider the message version of verse 3. ‘Like the horizon for breath and the oceans for depth the understanding of a leader is broad and deep’. For you to be successful in leadership and in business, you need to invest time before God in thinking through. You will receive light concerning dark difficult things; and when you come out from your thinking corner, you will act appropriately. Then you will not have any reason to worry!
