Oh Lord, I know that You desire for every believer to come to You in prayer often. However, so many people are glued to their phone, tablet, computer, TV, gaming consoles, and other frivolous things. When asked if people are reading the Bible daily or praying often, they often come up with excuses, instead of an emphatic yes. This is really sad to witness, especially when family members complain about me reading the Bible with them. Who is it for me, who loves the Lord with all my heart, mind, and strength, to think that people want to ignore You God, who profess to believe in You. This really breaks my heart, God. I wish I could just wake them up from their slumber. Too many people are living for the world are in sin, when they ought to be living for You instead. Oh, how this generation is different from years past, where people used to look to You in faith, even each day of their lives. Where now people are mostly inclined to seek You on the weekends only. Lord, if people would just know that You are waiting to bless their lives, then maybe they would want to give You a chance. I do not wish to see people die in their sins and one day say, Lord, Lord, haven't we done all these great and many things in Your Name? To these people, who wish to justify their salvation come judgment day, has really missed the mark of seeking You while they had breath. You have taught me that it doesn't matter if I've read the Bible, prayed for many people, and even healed them through Your Name. What matters is what we are doing now for You. This is what matters most. So, Lord, I come to You now and ask for Your guidance and direction. Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may know the right path to follow. I wish to be fruitful for Your kingdom in this life, and no longer give allegiance to things that don't matter come death. It is to do Your will that I wish this and not my own. I love You more than anything else. I trust in You, God. Amen.
2 Chronicles 1:10-12 (KJV)
10 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?
11 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:
12 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.
God desires that we put our trust in Him. We do this by acknowledging Him in prayer often and asking the Lord for assistance.
Every person that asks of the Lord, will gain different spiritual gifts like Solomon did. All he wanted was to gain wisdom and enough knowledge to judge the people, which God was happy about. Continue Reading
