God Given

Today's reading: 1 Kings 4:1-34

The magnitude of Solomon's kingdom is portrayed for us throughout 1 Kings 4. I love that we get to see in detail what the fulfillment of God's promise to Solomon in 1 Kings 3:11-14 (to give him incredible wisdom, but also extraordinary riches and honor) looked like. It actually took me a little while to process and fully grasp the vastness of it all. The beginning words of verse 29, "And God gave..." highlighted for me God's greatness, His goodness and that He is the giver of all things. What an incredible God we serve!

Do you recognize God as being the giver of everything you have--job, money, house, car, intelligence, family, etc.? What's one way or an instance where God has shown you His goodness this week? Tami
