Ask for Wisdom

Please make me wise and teach me the difference between right and wrong. Then I will know how to rule your people. If you don’t, there is no way I could rule this great nation of yours.
(1 Kings 3:9 CEV)

Solomon was young when he was appointed king over Israel, so when God appeared to him in a dream and asked him to name anything he wanted, Solomon asked for wisdom. God was pleased with Solomon’s request and granted it. Moreover, God gave Solomon the things that he didn’t ask for–wealth, honour and a promise of a long life (1 Kings 3:13-14). God still delights in giving us wisdom. The Bible assures us, “If any of you need wisdom, you should ask God, and it will be given to you. God is generous and won’t correct you for asking” (James 1:5). Therefore, asking for wisdom is something that I’ve learned to do daily, and as Solomon and his contemporaries doubtless observed, it makes a big difference when your life is governed by it.

Ask for wisdom daily and watch the results.
