‘Ask for whatever you want me to give you.’ ~ 1 Kings 3:5
Solomon started well but ended up as a bad example. But when he took over the throne from David hid father, he knew what was the most important thing he must do and what he needed inorder to do that. That’s why when God appeared in a dream at night and said, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.” , Solomon made an apt reply – “Now, O LORD my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties….So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong.”
Distinguishing between right and wrong is a very important ability that we all need to have and cultivate. Not only those in leadership positions face issues pertainig to administering justice, but even a housewife, a mother, a teacher or someone in any other ordinary role find themselves having the need to do so. And the best way to cultivate it is to meditate on the Word of God. For God’s word is light for our path and a lamp for our feet. As we do so we will gain understadning of what we need to do the important things in our life. And we can rely on God’s graciousness to provide the same when we ask him.
God knows the task at hand and he is ready to supply what’s needed. But it is for us to do the soul searching and know what we need.
Prayer – “Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for being there to provide me with all that I need not only for my life but to do your will as well. Help me understand your purpose and confidently go forward in the purpose chosen for me. Amen.”
