Spread the love



Scripture: Psalm 90: 12. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Beloved, today is a special day because it is my birthday!
(Please kindly pray for me in your closet).

Our opening scripture was a prayer of Moses.

If only we understand the brevity of our days on earth, then we can incline our hearts to seek wisdom on time. One of the men who contacted wisdom early was Solomon.

Today we shall examine how Solomon got both wisdom and understanding.

How did Solomon lay hold on wisdom?
1. A heart centerd on God (1Kg.3:3): Solomon’s first love was God and his love for God was obvious in his service.

2. Sacrifice for God (1Kg.3:4): There’s nobody who was as sacrificial as Solomon when it came to giving offerings to God.

Immediately Solomon finished offering his sacrifice, the same night God showed up(1Kg.3:5).

Beloved, your sacrificial giving can provoke your heaven to open. There are things you don’t need to pray about, just carry out a sacrifice and watch God.

3. A child like attitude :

1 Kings 3: 7. .. : and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.

Solomon had the right attitude before God and that is the attitude of a little child! Imagine Solomon kneeling before the Lord, threw away his kingship regalia and said “I am a little child “! Our attitudes affect our reception.

There are those who feel they have arrived, yet they know nothing! There are those who need wisdom but pretend as if they don’t need it.

Beloved! Let God know you are a child who needs His wisdom.

Shun the idea of “I’m an adult at least I should know what to do,” stop the feeling that “I’m an educated person!”

4. A heart for people :

1 Kings 3: 8. And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.

Solomon had a heart that was people oriented! He was interested in the welfare of people, in this case the people of God.

Beloved, if your interest in life is to please yourself, and not people then God’s wisdom may elude you.

Everything God will ever bless you with, it is not for your personal interest rather for others.

Develop a heart to be a blessing to people and you are the right candidate for wisdom.

5. A sincere acknowledgement of his lack of wisdom:

1 Kings 3: 7. And now, O LORD my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.

Solomon, admitted his lack of wisdom by saying, “I know not how to go out or come in! “

Beloved God is waiting for you to admit your lack of wisdom but you have explained it away.

Do you know that lack of results and progress in life is an indication that wisdom is lacking because wisdom is justified by her children.

6. A sincere request for wisdom :

2 Chronicles 1: 10. Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great?

Solomon did not only admit his lack of wisdom, he also requested for it!

Beloved, it is not enough to bemoan your lack of a thing but do nothing about it. You may complain of your lack but that does not change the fact until actions are taken.

So if you have sincerely observed your life and discovered wisdom is missing kindly go on your knees and ask God. He will not deny you of wisdom. He has rightly said:

James 1: 5. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

In conclusion, as you follow the footsteps of Solomon, be rest assured, you will arrive at heaven-sent wisdom.

Remember this; Heaven is real and hell is real, where you spend eternity is up to you! But one thing is certain there is eternity ahead of every man! Jesus loves you.

Prayer points:

– Father thank you for your word to me today,
– Lord, I receive grace to love you, I admit my lack of wisdom and make necessary request for it in Jesus name.

Prophetic Declaration :
– I prophesy as you follow the footsteps of Solomon, you will sleep only to wake up as an embodiment of wisdom in Jesus name.
– You will always swim in the ocean of wisdom to navigate your ways through this wicked world in the name of Jesus.
– The wisdom you need to change level, receive it now in Jesus name.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
