Solomon must have had much energy to go with the wisdom God gave him. Not only did he keep up the priesthood system of sacrifices, build a new temple and palace, restore cities, maintain an elite army, but he amassed gold and horses and slaves and instituted a regal lifestyle that was like none other in the earth. The Queen of Sheba had never seen anything like it.
It was as if he possessed a holy energy.
New Testament Christians receive God’s grace to be energized for His Kingdom.
“For it is God Himself Who is at work in you, both to will and do of His good pleasure.” [Phil. 2:13]
PRAYER: Lord, we want to be busy for You, empowered daily by Your grace and led by the wisdom of Your Spirit.
