Prayer: Solomon Prays for Wisdom

The True Riches of God’s Wisdom


To have God’s Wisdom is much greater than all the riches of the world. Let’s pray for God’s Wisdom today just like Solomon did in the following scripture. A key thing to note is that Solomon went to God in prayer with a true, humble heart:

Solomon Requests Wisdom
Now Solomon made [a]a treaty with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and married Pharaoh’s daughter; then he brought her to the City of David until he had finished building his own house, and the house of the Lord, and the wall all around Jerusalem. Meanwhile the people sacrificed at the high places, because there was no house built for the name of the Lord until those days. And Solomon loved the Lord, walking in the statutes of his father David, except that he sacrificed and burned incense at the high places.
Now the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there, for that was the great high place: Solomon offered a thousand burnt offerings on that altar. At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, “Ask! What shall I give you?”
And Solomon said: “You have shown great mercy to Your servant David my father, because he walked before You in truth, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with You; You have continued this great kindness for him, and You have given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day. Now, O Lord my God, You have made Your servant king instead of my father David, but I am a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in. And Your servant is in the midst of Your people whom You have chosen, a great people, too numerous to be numbered or counted. Therefore give to Your servant an [b]understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?”
10 The speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing. 11 Then God said to him: “Because you have asked this thing, and have not asked long life for yourself, nor have asked riches for yourself, nor have asked the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern justice, 12 behold, I have done according to your words; see, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you. 13 And I have also given you what you have not asked: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the kings all your days. 14 So if you walk in My ways, to keep My statutes and My commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen[c] your days.”
15 Then Solomon awoke; and indeed it had been a dream. And he came to Jerusalem and stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, offered up burnt offerings, offered peace offerings, and made a feast for all his servants.

Symbolization: The depths were broken up

Original Entry Date: 10/18/2016: What is True Wisdom?

Wisdom is God, it is His knowledge, it is what was and is what has always been. By Gods Wisdom, the earth was created:

The Lord by wisdom founded the earth;
By understanding He established the heavens;

Who was their in the beginning with God, because He, too was and IS what has always been:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made

Yes, Jesus was.


20 By His knowledge the depths were broken up,
And clouds drop down the dew.

By God’s knowledge (Jesus Christ is the knowledge of God) the depths were broken up. Jesus broke apart the depths of Sheol (death, the underworld, hell)

The depths of Sheol (death, hell, alienation from God) was broken up by the Work of Jesus Christ on the cross and His resurrection.



Definition of Sheol from th LXXM

1) the death of the body
1a) that separation (whether natural or violent) of the soul and
the body by which the life on earth is ended
1b) with the implied idea of future misery in hell
1b1) the power of death
1c) since the nether world, the abode of the dead, was conceived as
being very dark, it is equivalent to the region of thickest
darkness i.e. figuratively, a region enveloped in the darkness
of ignorance and sin
2) metaph., the loss of that life which alone is worthy of the name,
2a) the misery of the soul arising from sin, which begins on earth
but lasts and increases after the death of the body in hell
3) the miserable state of the wicked dead in hell
4) in the widest sense, death comprising all the miseries
arising from sin, as well physical death as the loss of a life
consecrated to God and blessed in him on earth, to be followed
by wretchedness in hell
Hebrew definition of Sheol

“the clouds drop down the dew”: After the Resurrection Jesus ascends to Heaven. We are then given the Gift of the Holy Spirit which rains down from Heaven like the early morning dew.


10/26/2021: Here is a little poem/song I wrote just a bit ago. Well I actually was singing it but I ain’t no singer. I named it after one of my favorite Rock Artist, PJ Harvey, and her album “…Is this Desire?” Just so y’all know that I didn’t create that title haha:

“ Is this Desire?...” (PJ Harvey Album name)

Lord Jesus….
                    ……You save my soul 

                                              Lord Jesus, 
It’s  You alone. 
                            Lord, Jesus….
                                                        …..I call You home.
My heart….
                         …………..sings…
                                                     …………………that You are my one and only 
Through the dark times…..
                                    Through the hard times…..
                                                                       Through those foggy times…..

And even through the best of times…..

Lord, Jesus…..
                        There You stood with me alone
Lord Jesus….
                    I call You my Home.

Personal Journal: What is Your Gift?

Original Entry Date 12/22/2015: The past couple Personal Journal entries have been about this mysterious gift that God was imparting over me but it wouldn’t be something I’d visually see.

(Read “The Gift” https://baptizemyheartlord.com/2021/04/30/personal-journal-the-gift/)

The hints of Ham, Shem and Ram (the animal, I believe) were given to me.

(Read “More about the Gift” https://baptizemyheartlord.com/2021/05/04/personal-journal-more-about-the-gift/)

While in prayer this morning, God asked me what my gift was. I wasn’t 100% sure so I replied, “Hearing You speak to me one on one.” He confirmed that was true but said it was much more.

My morning devotional was about the wise men being led to Christ by a spectacular star. As I am reading, I hear God speak, “You are the star!” This all connects with something we had talked about earlier in a previous journal entry.

Lights amongst the darkness. I am the star of Gods creation leading people to the King, Jesus. And the awesome thing is…look to the sky and see that there are MANY more stars as well, so I am one of many! Amen!
