“In that night did God appear unto Solomon, and said unto him, ‘Ask! What I shall give thee?'” 2 Chronicles 1:7 (KJB)
How would you respond?
The name “God” in the above verse is the plurality of God, meaning the whole of the Godhead – Father, Son, and Spirit came to Solomon to ask him, the king of Jerusalem this question.
Some may think, “Well God was giving favors to a king.” He is giving favors to one of His children. He gives this favor to all His children today.
It was Jesus who said,
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8
Solomon’s request was for wisdom and knowledge in the rule of God’s people. He did not ask for power, or great wealth, but for the wisdom and knowledge that would bring glory to God.
O that we as the people of God would be faithful in our praying, our prayers, to ask for the glory of God in our lives. I ask to grow into the image of my Lord and Savior, to be a faithful witness of His love, mercy, and grace through my life. my actions, and my words.
When you have been born again through faith in Jesus Christ, and His finished work on the cross, then you have access to the very throne room of God Almighty (Hebrews 4:14-16).
God has appeared to you today. He has asked you the question; “What shall I give you?”
