GOD’s WISDOM - Bro. T. Stephen

I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today, is from the book of 1 Kings 3:9, “ Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy, so great a people? ”
From the above context we understand that Solomon the son of King David was about to be crowned, the king of Israel, after his father, King David. He wondered how he would lead so great a multitude of people. He was quite timid and innocent when he came to the throne. So he asks God to give him an extraordinary wisdom, to rule the people of Israel.
Many of you are struggling to manage your family, your business, and your workers in your office, why you are unable to manage your wife and children at times. They create such problem that makes you sick of them. They cause such atrocities within the family which often go beyond your control. And you feel helpless and unmanageable to deal with them. Therefore you need wisdom to run your family smoothly and even other concern that are under your control. So today you are reading this message with great expectation, as to what the Lord has in store for you or an answer to your problems.
The Lord is going to bless you with abundance of wisdom since you lack wisdom and proper understanding to manage your family, your business, and all other matters concerned with you. He wants you to maintain a peaceful and comfort life. The wisdom that God gives you would help you to; regain all that you had lost in your life. Wisdom will never bring destruction in your life, It will only provide better life or better living conditions. Therefore you need to ask God for wisdom today itself. Never postpone your request before God. No one should boast of his wisdom, or think he is a wise person and does not need any advice , correction, or counselling. Instead you ought to plead for wisdom and good understanding in the presence of God. That is what King Solomon asked God on that day when he was made the King of Israel. He knew very well that he needed wisdom in order to lead, and guide the people of Israel. It was not an easy task to rule the stiff necked people or to judge them wisely.
Solomon loved the Lord. He walked in the statutes of David his father. At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night, and God said, “Ask what I shall give you.” And Solomon said, “You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant David my father, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward you. And you have kept for him this great and steadfast love and have given him a son to sit on his throne this day. And now, O Lord my God, you have made me (your servant) , King in place of David my father. I do not know how to go out or come in. And I ( your servant ) is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude. Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this, your great people?”
It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked for wisdom, And God said to him, “Because you have asked for wisdom to rule My people, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches or the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right, behold, I now do according to your word. Behold, I give you wisdom and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you. I give you also what you have not asked, both riches and honour, so that no other king shall compare with you, all your days. And if you will walk in my ways, keeping my statutes and my commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen your days.” And Solomon awoke, and behold, it was a dream. Then he came to Jerusalem and stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and offered up burnt offerings and peace offerings, and made a feast for all his servants.
Thus we see that God blessed King Solomon with an abundance of wisdom because he asked God for wisdom and good understanding. The Bible says, “Ask and it will be given to you.”Hence all you got to do, is to ask God for wisdom. The Bible further says, “ For God gives wisdom, and knowledge, and joy, to a man, who is good in His sight.” Therefore I urge you children of God, to walk in the ways of God, and to keep His commandments, and His judgements and be good in His sight, then you will prosper, in all that you do, and wherever you turn. And God will bless you too with abundance of wisdom. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for telling us through the message that we need wisdom to manage our family, our business and all other matters. Lord give us this wisdom that you gave King Solomon, and help us to handle all the situation that arise in our life wisely with proper discretion. May we be successful in life like Solomon.
In Jesus name we pray.
