II Chronicles 1:12 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.
Solomon recognized that it was God that had given him the kingdom. He realized he didn’t deserve it. He didn’t even get it in his own name but that of his dad.
Now God asks him what he would like to have. God offers him wealth or wisdom. Solomon chooses wisdom. God is pleased with his answer and gives him both.
Isn’t that just like God. He always does more than we deserve but even more than that He does more than we could every ask or expect. He is a good God.
I often am not as thankful as I should be. I do not think of all that He is doing for me. I should because I am blessed. He is good. He is worthy to be praised.
