DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 1 Kings 1-3
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then God said to him: “Because you have asked this thing, and have not asked long life for yourself, nor have asked riches for yourself, nor have asked the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern justice, behold, I have done according to your words; see, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you. And I have also given you what you have not asked: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the kings all your days.”” (1 Kings 3:11-13)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the God of love (1 John 4:16 and 1 John 4:18). Our God is the God of wisdom (James 1:5). Our God is the greatest giver (Matthew 7:7-8). The whole Earth belongs to God (Psalm 24:1). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how Solomon was established as the King of Israel after King David, King David’s instructions to Solomon, how King Solomon asked God for wisdom, and how King Solomon ruled in justice with the wisdom of God. As believers in God, it is always important for us to seek counsel from God (Psalm 33:11). And, it is always good for us to serve God faithfully, and to love God with all our hearts, souls, and minds (Mark 11:22 and Matthew 22:37-40). God loves all people, and God wants to save all the people of the world that will come to Him for eternal salvation (John 3:16-17). If you are not yet saved by God, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved by God. Amen. May God bless you today, everyday, and forevermore in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
WORDS OF JESUS:
