Unsearchable – Daily Devotion of Proverbs chapter twenty five, Verse 3
3 The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable.
Daily Inspiration from This Verse – Unsearchable
In a recent devotional called “Honor of Kings,” we spoke about how we can hide nothing from the Lord, but he enjoys the privilege of concealing things for whatever purpose he has for doing so. Typically for us to enjoy the ride from finding what he’s hidden, and growing from it in some way.
To follow along in a similar vein, the verse above speaks about the unsearchable heart of kings. I would suggest to you, that this verse pertains to everyone out there, not just kings.
Can any of us truly search and know the heart of any person? I can’t, I know that much. We are given indicators of what may be on the heart by a person, “judging a tree by its fruit” kind of thing, but nobody knows without a person opening his mouth to fill us in.
The heart of man is unsearchable by man. Just as the ways of the Lord and even the Lord himself is unsearchable by man.
The only way we know the things of the Lord, is by studying or paying attention to what he has allowed us to know about him. We can’t go on an expedition and find all kinds of things about the Father that he hasn’t allowed to be found, or that he doesn’t want us to know about.
Someone can sit there and prod you all day long to reveal what’s on your heart. Unless you open your mouth, they’ll have no way to know for sure.
Sometimes we hold things in our heart because they are nobody else’s business. I’m sure there are many different things that some of us will take to the grave without having told a soul. Not necessarily bad things, but things you’ve decided to tuck away. Nobody can search these things out of you.
But having an unsearchable heart can work against us sometimes. Maybe we expect others to behave a certain way around us, because we assume they know what’s on our heart but don’t? For example, a loved one just died in an accident, shortly thereafter you find yourself in a room of a few people laughing over some accident videos they found on YouTube.
They have no clue that what they are saying is tearing you up, unless you mention a thing or two. Chances are, they’d feel like idiots and become apologetic real fast as soon as they learn what is on your heart.
There is a crowd out there that believes they have the market cornered concerning the heart of man. They believe they know what’s on the heart, and cast judgement upon them. This (as we’ve gone through time and again) is unbiblical and unchristlike. The last handful of devotionals have been touching on this.
The heart of a man us unsearchable, unless you go by the true title of the Lord God Almighty. Then there’s no longer such thing as a man’s heart being impossible to search out.
This is one of many reasons, that it is so wonderful to get close to the Lord. He knows things that you haven’t even shared with your best friends or your families, and has an understanding that greatly surpasses ours.
As far as I’m concerned, the Lord is the friend that sticks closer than a brother, and it is the condition of our hearts that he is constantly concerned with. Nothing is unsearchable with him, and for this he deserves praise.
If you don’t know him, please get to know him. Come and introduce yourself to him as soon as you can, and begin a journey that you’ll never regret taking. Head to the Salvation page and introduce yourself to the Father!

Thank you for your Word, and also for the discoveries you’ve placed inside it. You are always there to lend an ear, some help, and guidance, and for this we also thank you. Please help us not to jump to conclusions, and make assumptions that are not driven by your Holy Spirit, so that we are not found wrongly judging others, over things that we in truth know nothing about. In the ways of meekness, forgiveness, longsuffering, and truth, may we ever become more like you. This we pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Have you ever noticed that the world loves to dwell on the unsearchable things of the Father, rather than taking in what we’ve been given to know?
