What would you ask for if you could have anything?

MoneyWould "Money" solve all your problems?

 

If you could have ANYTHING . . . what would you ask for?

When God invited Solomon to ask for whatever he wanted, the king requested wisdom (1 Kings 3:9-12).  If God were to ask you the same question, how would you respond?

According to the Bible, Solomon was the wisest and richest man that ever lived.  He is credited with authoring the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes.

As we all think about working through 2010, he reminds us that "One hand full of rest is better than two fists full of labor and striving after the wind." (Ecclesiastes 4:6)  And at the conclusion, when all has been heard, Solomon said ". . . fear God and keep His commandments, becuase this applies to every person.  For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil." (Ecclesiastes 12:13,14)

That God-given wisdom taught Solomon that only a fool tries to solve life's problems without God's help.

If you could ask for ANYTHING . . . what would it be?

While I think we would all like to have the market of 2005 with the knowledge we have today, my specific requests for 2010 come from Colossians 1:7- 14 - 

·         That I would be filled with the knowledge of God’s will.

·         That I would be filled with spiritual wisdom and understanding.

·         That I would bear fruit in every good work.

·       That I would continue to increase in the knowledge of God and Jesus Christ.

·         That I would experience the power of God in my daily life.

·         That I would continue to trust God during 2010

·         That God would give me discernment in all that I do.

·         Ask that we would stand firm against the schemes of the enemy.
