June 8 – Daily Notes – Amanda

genie

Remember as a kid when you would think about what your three wishes would be if you had a personal genie? The correct answer is, of course, “more wishes”. After that, it’s normally money, a cool car, a big house, etc. Solomon had a similar opportunity, but it wasn’t a fake genie and they weren’t fake wishes. He could ask God for anything. He asked for wisdom. I wonder where that would rank on my list?

1 Kings 3:4-4:34:

  • 4-15 – In Solomon’s dream, of all the things he could ask of the Lord, he asks for understanding and discernment – wisdom.
  • 16-28 – This story makes it clear that God granted Solomon’s request for wisdom and discernment even though he asked in a dream.

Acts 6:1-15:

  • 8-15 – Like with Jesus, some folks opposed Stephen, twisting his words, to say he had committed blasphemy.

Psalm 126:1-6:

  • The Israelites found great identity in Jerusalem and specifically Zion. Zion was a sign of their connection and favor with God.

Proverbs 16:26-27:

  • This is the difference between someone who works for good, productive results versus someone who works for harmful, careless results.
