MORNINGTIME 2974
 
GIVE ME NOW WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE, THAT I MAY go out and come in before this people: for who can JUDGE this THY PEOPLE, that is so great? AND GOD SAID TO SOLOMON, BECAUSE THIS WAS IN THINE HEART, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked Wisdom and Knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king: WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE IS GRANTED UNTO THEE; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like. 2 Chronicles 1:10-12. Solomon was not the wisest man on earth when he became king, but he was smart enough to recognize that little spot of Godly DNA in his Heart that said, "Ask God for the Good Stuff, ask the Lord for those things that HE wants you to have, and not what THE WORLD wants to give you". (We're talking here of the first half of his Kingship, later he did fall into serious worldliness and sin). He had a Desire to go for the Spiritual "Gold" of whatever the Lord wanted him to have, and not for all the Worldly trappings he could have asked for. To ask for Godly Wisdom and Knowledge back then, is just as important today, and even more so. To ask for ALL the Wisdom and Knowledge God has for you, first and foremost, is to Touch the Heart of the Lord like nothing else can, after asking for Salvation. In today's terms, that will also cover asking for Growing in CHRISTLIKENESS, which is automatically asking for the Lord to use Chastening, Chastisement, and Correction, with all the Purity, Righteousness,  Holiness, AND Patience the Lord can pack into each and every day's Lessons of Seeking Christ. "If you get the Son, you get it ALL". And the Holy Spirit WILL answer your Hearts Desire every day with A Fresh New Lesson of Growth in and towards Christ. "It doesn't get any better than that". If this is YOUR Prayer, you WILL, Be Blessed.
