What would you ask for?
"Give me an understanding heart so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between right and wrong. For who by himself is able to govern this great people of yours?" 1 Kings 3:9 Solomon speaks here saying, "Can I govern Your people without Your wisdom?" He knew he couldn't do anything without God. How many times do we try to go off and do our own thing? I am so guilty of this. I think I have the answer, the quick answer, right? Because no one wants to wait when there is a problem. We are a right now people, while God is a wait on Me kind of God.
His purpose and plan is always higher than ours. Might we begin to seek Him daily. Morning, noon and night. Sometimes I need to call upon Him minute by minute. It is His wisdom that will set us apart from others and guide us through life with meaning and peace. When we know God is in control and really trust Him, there is nothing to fear nor hold us down. Lets take some wisdom from King Solomon and learn to go to God and seek Him with all our heart.
Philippians 4:13 "For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength."
