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?
(1 Kings 3:9)
When Solomon became king, he was only a young man of about 18 years old. He had big shoes to fill as David’s successor to the throne. So when the Lord appeared to him in a dream and asked him what he wanted, he asked the Lord for wisdom to lead the people. This request pleased the Lord.

I believe that the same request that pleased the Lord then still pleases Him today. He is pleased when we ask Him for wisdom. To ask Jesus for wisdom is to put ourselves in a posture of trusting and depending on His unmerited favor.

Although Solomon only asked for wisdom, the Lord added “riches and wealth and honor” to him (2 Chron. 1:12). Too many people are chasing riches, wealth and honor, not realizing that they come through the wisdom of Jesus. Even if someone were to come into sudden wealth, without the wisdom of Jesus to manage it, the money would be squandered away. But with the wisdom of Jesus, you won’t only be blessed, you will also be able to hold on to the blessings in your life. Jesus makes you safe for good success that produces lasting and abiding fruit from generation to generation!
