That night God appeared to Solomon. God said, “What do you want from me? Ask.”
Solomon answered, “You were extravagantly generous with David my father, and now you have made me king in his place. Establish, GOD, the words you spoke to my father, for you’ve given me a staggering task, ruling this mob of people. Yes, give me wisdom and knowledge as I come and go among this people—for who on his own is capable of leading these, your glorious people?” (2 Chron 1:7)
We face this dilemma each day of our lives. Which way? What now? What to do?
Unfortunately life isn’t like a package from IKEA and doesn’t come with all the diagrams.
GOD wants to guide us through His Holy Spirit, and He always speaks, but He won’t give in to our sulking petulance, and lead us down a path that isn’t ours.
So when you ask, don’t ask from fear but ask from the heart, because that’s where He Lives. X
