TOPIC: WISDOM FROM BIBLICAL LEADERS- SOLOMON


Scripture; 1 Kings 3: 28. And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! One of the great leaders in the Bible is Solomon! In his days, there was peace, he didn’t need to fight any war and the economy was relatively buoyant!

Definitely there is wisdom to gain from Solomon, the man of wisdom who reigned with much wisdom and understanding such that he was the last king of the united kingdom of Israel.

What is the wisdom to learn from Solomon’s leadership?

1. He learned to ask for wisdom and understanding (1Kg.3:9-12). As soon as he was installed as king, he realized his lack of wisdom and passionately asked God for it.

Beloved, in whatever capacity you find yourself as a leader, learn to depend on God. Acknowledge your lack of wisdom and don’t fail to ask God for it. It takes wisdom to lead effectively! So, begin your leadership journey therefore with a heart thirsty for wisdom.

2. Making decisions based on the word (1Kg 3;24). When the decision of whom to handover the living child to between the two women(1Kg.3:19-23), Solomon requested for a sword and we do know that the sword represents the word of God(Eph.6:17).

Beloved, learn to bring in the word of God which is the sword of the spirit into your decision making.

While you are in that board room trying to make decision, let the word of God come to play and the right course of action will show up.

The hallmark of true leadership is decision making and requires sound wisdom to make a good judgement.

Ask God for it today! This is the wisdom of Solomon.

3. Solomon enjoyed to give answers to the people’s questions(1Kg.10:3). Solomon understood that he was an answer to the people he was leading, hence he prepared himself to answer their questions. Even when Queen Sheba visited with questions, Solomon answered all her questions.

Beloved, as a leader, you are meant to be an answer to the questions in the mind of your people.
Don’t be a question be an answer! As long as you choose to be an answer, their loyalty to you will remain.

4. Solomon’s stewards served in dignity (1Kg.10:4-5).

Solomon never practiced a leadership where those who served the king were hungry or looked awkward. The dignity of service that queen of Sheba met shocked her (1Kg.10;5).

Beloved, let excellence and dignity mark those that serve under your watch as a leader. If you must raise men, raise them in dignity.

Dignity implies that those that work for you are well paid and paid as at when due!

Don’t be a CEO that withholds workers wages and salaries, pay promptly as at when due, this is wisdom. It is ani-covenant to delay workers salary and poor remuneration, it shows lack of wisdom! May God give you wisdom in this regard in the name of Jesus.

5. He worked with counselors(1Kg.12:7, Prov.24:6); Someone will say does a man of wisdom need a counselor?
Yes!
Despite the wisdom of God, Solomon still surrounded himself with counselors. For he said:

Proverbs 11: 14. Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety.

Dear leader, no matter what you know, listen to other people’s advise! Don’t be Mr know it all! There are times God may be speaking to you through a child, listen, don’t say this one is a child! This is the wisdom of Solomon.

6. He was also a servant leader: Solomon opened his heart to serve the people. That was obvious in the statement of the elders that counselled Rehoboam the son of Solomon. They were the counselors of his father (1Kg.12:7).

Remember this;
Heaven is real and hell is real. Your eternal soul matters to God, don’t gamble with your eternal destiny, make Jesus your Lord today.

Prayer points:
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, I receive the grace for Solomon’s leadership style today in the name of Jesus.

Prophetic Declaration:

– I prophesy that your season of unending laughter has just began! – May you be ushered into your realm of greatness at the frequency of wisdom in the name of Jesus.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
