1 Kings 3:9 – 9 Therefore give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?”
Earlier in this chapter, the Lord asked King Solomon, “What shall I give you?” It was an easy, but tricky question. Would it be riches, material things, larger territories? King Solomon sought something far greater and more valuable than any material item of this world. He sought “an understanding heart to judge Your people”. King Solomon understood that without an “understanding heart”, all of the riches of the world would be worthless.
What is it that you seek daily from the Lord? Riches, material items, larger “territories”? Without an “understanding heart”, we have nothing. The greatest gift that the Lord can give us is a heart to understand His will, understand His plan and understand His purpose. Riches will not allow us to live in God’s will, only an understanding heart that can come from above. It is only with an understanding heart can we be in His will and live according to His plan.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
