THE WISDOM THAT COMES FROM GOD
"And God said to Solomon: because there was this in your heart, and not asked riches, goods or glory, or the lives of those who want you badly, or you asked for many days, but that you have asked for you wisdom and knowledge to govern my people, about which I have set by King, wisdom and knowledge you are given;" and also I will give you riches, goods, and glory, and never had the kings who were before you, nor have those who come after you."(Chronic 2 1:11-12)
COMPLEMENTARY passage: 2 Chronicles 1:1-13; Santiago 1:5-7
Solomon had an extraordinary opportunity to ask what a person wants: wealth, honors, health, power, etc. God it was offering what he wanted, but such as had been instructed by his father David, Salomon preferred to be wise and intelligent, to be rich and powerful. It is very interesting to know that wisdom led him to be famous, very rich and prosperous. But notable difference between the prayer of Solomon and the many men and women who desperately seek success and fame, regardless of the method they use to accomplish that.
In the course of the life and the Ministry, have been known many cases of people who have sacrificed family, friends, health, welfare, etc., in order to achieve goals that are almost always, only materials and passengers. What most don't understand is that there are two ways to achieve things: as a result of our own efforts or as a result of the blessing of God on our lives. In the first case, the results of the man are characterized because they are scarce, difficult, transient and often the price that must be paid by them is the anguish, anxiety, and stress. While the fruits that God allows us to obtain, are just the opposite: generous, abundant, safe and permanent. In addition, let us always deep satisfaction. The Lord Jesus repeats it with the following words: "I am the vine, you are the branches; that remains in me and I in him, this carries much fruit; because apart from me anything you can do"(John 15:5)
Now, the biblical story teaches us that Solomon asked for wisdom in reason Dios had delegated him to lead a nation, because I knew the enormous responsibility that this implied, and many people would affect their actions and decisions. Today we can say that as Solomon, God us has turned over a village, some children, a family, a job why pray fervently asking for all possible to be a great blessing: wisdom. The invitation is to meditate on the work delegated to us by Dios. If we have our way, we have to admit our mistakes and ask for forgiveness. We must be prepared to follow the example left to us by the most wise and famous King that has existed and will exist.
WE TALK WITH GOD
"Dear Father, thank you for the night's sleep and this morning for allowing us to be in your presence, today we understand that the only need is you. No matter what you have in front, the complicated situation, how complex the task, the impossible that seems the challenge, if you have to you, we have everything; If we have your wisdom, you know everything; If we rely on your strength, so we can all."Gracias by your promises, your Covenant is eternal, for giving us that wisdom that can only come from you my Eternal God, for giving us thoughts of good and not evil, because you are our shelter and strength, we will be always hugging you," Amen.
