Solomon makes a great offering before YHWH in the tent of meeting, and God commands Solomon, “Ask me for whatever you want me to give you” (2 Chronicles 1:7). Solomon chooses to ask for wisdom rather than riches or military might, and God commends this choice. Even for us, wisdom is something God is pleased to offer freely to those who ask (James 1:5).

Have you considered asking God for wisdom in light of the promises of God? Today I encourage you to petition God for wisdom in your prayers.
