- Do we want wealth?
- Do we want a long life?
- Do we want a stronger spiritual connection with the Lord?
- Do we want a healthy and prosperous family?
- Do we need healing?
Solomon had everything (and a lot more) that anyone could ever desire. Money, fame, fortune – almost anything imaginable. However, he finally realized in his old age that those things weren’t as important as a life spent loving and honoring the Lord. I love the passage, “But the excellence of knowledge is that wisdom gives LIFE to those who have it.” That’s a pretty profound statement coming from someone that had everything! Yes, God desires for us to be prosperous and for us to be wealthy and for us to have a happy family, but He doesn’t want us to get so caught up in those things that we forget about Him. He is the reason we have all that we do, and He deserves the credit for anything we accomplish, whether we see it that way or not.
Ask God to give you the knowledge so that you can gain the wisdom that will give you life! God desires us, not only to live full lives, but to live prosperous lives. He longs for us to understand His wisdom that will bring us into the full prosperity that He desires for our life!
