God told King Solomon that he could have anything he wanted. Solomon asked for wisdom, and God also gave him honor and riches. “I will make you wise and intelligent…You will have riches and honor all your life” (I Kings 3:12b-13a).
Solomon shares his wisdom with us in the book of Proverbs. Solomon wants us to have a relationship of love and faithfulness with God — just like Solomon’s father, David, had.
Our Bible verses today remind us to trust God. “Don’t trust in your own wisdom, but fear and respect the Lord and stay away from evil” (verse 7). As Christians, our job is to trust God and let Him control our lives.
Maybe you are going through hard times or maybe you are not sure what God wants you to do. Trust God to lead you. He loves you and wants to have a close relationship with you.
