“I will give you the treasures of darkness,
And hidden riches of secret places,
That you may know that I, the LORD,
Who call you by your name,
Am the God of Israel.” Isaiah 45:3 NKJV
The most essential element in human genius is a providential link between God and mankind.
Fossil fuels, minerals, precious metals and other naturally occurring treasures are extracted from the earth, a work done by men, God’s chosen stewards of creation.
Time and technology converge, connecting authority and ownership with commitment and patience to unearth treasure that’s been there all along—hidden.
Even those who don’t really believe in Him receive portions, gain insight, and prosper from His design, a future reference point when they might turn and acknowledge His benevolence.
Mankind’s savvy, though significant, is not the source of genius, God is. He commands first.
