Wisdom For King Solomon

1 Kgs. 3:1-15

When God gave a “blank cheque” to King Solomon in our text to ask for anything, Solomon didn’t ask God for gold or silver. Instead, he asked for wisdom. In fact, his answer showed that he already had a bit of wisdom – wisdom that he seemed to have learned from his father, king David. Kings in the ancient world usually requested from their gods those things that Solomon did not ask for – long life, riches and death of their enemies. Notice how God explicitly said that Solomon did not ask for those things. People often talk about the “wisdom of Solomon”, but this wisdom should rightly be called “Wisdom for Solomon”. The “wisdom of Solomon” is really the wisdom of God, given to Solomon as a gift. In verse 12, God says: “I give you…” what you have asked for. Then in verse 13, God says: “I give you also… what you have not asked for.” In the end Solomon received the things other kings prayed for – both wealth and honour all his life. Just like Solomon, we all need wisdom from God in all our life endeavours and as James 1:5 says, God will give liberally to anyone that asks for wisdom. You need such a wisdom, ask for it.

Point of Emphasis:   Wisdom is the principal thing, therefore get wisdom

Prayer Point:             Lord, I need Your wisdom in all that I do, please endow me with
