“Now King Solomon gave to the queen of Sheba all she desired” (II Chronicles 9:12).
The queen of Sheba wanted to see all the wisdom and fame of Solomon in person and so she departed from her nation with all eagerness. While together, she discussed everything with Solomon. When she returned, King Solomon heartily and happily presented her all that she desired and asked for.
Our God is greater than Solomon. You were a gentile and after knowing the love of Christ you have come nearer to Him. He had made all great things of love ready on the Cross of Calvary for your sake. He graciously provided the precious Salvation, eternal life and divine peace. Even now, He is gracious to give you not only what you seek with desire but also more than that.
Generally, pregnant women ask for many things from their husbands. Suddenly they will like to eat a sweet and on another day they will ask for a savoury in the same way. Loving husbands will always fulfil their wishes and keep them happy.
Certain things are there which you would not have sought from God. You would not have even thought of it. He is powerful to give you all those things. The Scripture says, “For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things” (Matthew 6:32).
One day, Solomon asked God, “Therefore give to your servant an understanding heart to judge your people” (I Kings 3:9). All he asked with desire was nothing but wisdom. But God was powerful to give him more than what he had asked for. “Then God said to Solomon: “....have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself,.......I have made you king. Wisdom and knowledge are granted to you and I will give you riches and wealth and honour, such as none of the kings have had who were before you, nor shall any after you have the like” (II Chronicles 1:11, 12).
Dear children of God, you who have Christ as Saviour are blessed. Abraham eagerly asked for a child and Bartimaeus who was a blind sought vision from God and God is powerful to fulfil both the requests. He will definitely give all that you seek with a desire to you. Is He not the lover of your soul?
To meditate: “Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3).
