God-given

Today's reading: 1 Kings 4:20-34

The magnitude of Solomon's kingdom is portrayed for us throughout 1 Kings 4. I love that we get to see in detail what the fulfillment of God's promise to Solomon looked like in 1 Kings 3:11-14--to give him incredible wisdom, but also extraordinary riches and honor. It actually took me a bit to process and fully grasp the vastness of it all. The beginning words of verse 29, "And God gave..." stood out and highlighted for me God's greatness, His goodness, and first and foremost, that He is the giver of all things. What an incredible God we serve!

Do you recognize God as being the giver of everything you have-- your job, money, house, car, intelligence, family, etc.? Take a couple of minutes and write down all that God has given to you, and then thank Him for whatever is on your list. What's one way or an instance where God has shown you His goodness this week?

Tami, So thankful that you are such a blessing as you use your God-given talents to Him,of whom I am so grateful.

Shame on me, for not taking the time to recognize God as being the Giver of everything! May I improve!
One way God has shown is goodness this week that God has given me a long life with good health and so thankful that my husband is being restored with better health. Of course we could write pages of books of God goodness to us each minute of each day!

God bless many with this lesson.

P.S. In our lesson's verse 14 Solomon is promise length of life.
