One of the most important privileges given by God to his children is to search out the things that he has concealed, and this is because he has made them kings and priests unto him, and according to Proverbs 25:2, it is the honour of kings to search out a matter or things that are concealed or hidden. 1Corinthians 2:10-11 reveals that God's Spirit searches his deep or hidden things, knows them, and reveals them to his children. This means that by the Spirit of God they can search out things that God has concealed, and make use of it.

Since it's God's glory to hid (conceal) a thing, 1Corinthians 2:7 reveals that the thing which God has concealed is " wisdom" and because it is ordained before the world unto our glory, searching it out and applying it will not only make one great, blessed and productive, but it will also make one be far ahead and victorious in life, and Proverbs 25:2 says something deep about it which I want to share with you, and so I want to carefully read the entire article as I discuss it in details.
Here is the deeper meaning of Proverbs 25:2.
" It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter."
According to the first part of the Bible passage given above, " It is the glory of God to conceal a thing", this means that the thing which God conceals brings him glory when it is revealed and applied by his children, and this is why Matthew 5:16 tells us that we should let our light so shine before men so that they can see our good works and glorify or give glory to our heavenly Father(God), and this is because the hidden thing of God is his word, and the word of God is light.
" but the honour of kings is to search out a matter." This second part of the scripture means that it is the honour of all those who have been made as kings by Christ and have received the Holy Spirit, to search out a matter (the thing that God has hidden or concealed).
As Children of God, we need to search out by the help of the Holy Spirit the thing or matter that God has hidden, and since it is the honour of kings to do so, knowing what God hides will make us do what pleases him and get us blessed and favoured by him.
