Solomon has an unbelievable opportunity laid before him. The God of the universe has granted him one request. No limits or conditions.
The discerning son of David decides what he wants most in the world is a true perspective. He asks for wisdom and discernment so that he might better assess right and wrong, truth and lie, good and bad.
There is no greater treasure in the kingdom of God than wisdom. No greater reward. Nothing more useful or beneficial to the disciple.
God grants Solomon wisdom and continues to place his favor on the king.
God is ready to impart wisdom, share discernment, and distribute perspective. He is knocking, desiring to sit down and share his vast understanding. It is for us to seek. To pursue. To listen.
We cannot get wisdom on our own; it must come from God. We cannot gain discernment out of our own strength; we must choose to trust God for it.
