“How happy your people must be! How happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom!” 1 Kings 10:8 NIV
“How blessed your men must be! How blessed these servants of yours must be because they are always stationed in front of you, listening to your wisdom!” 1 Kings 10:8 GW
These words of the Queen of Sheba to King Solomon struck me as interesting today. She was awestruck by all that she saw and heard when she came to visit King Solomon.
She could not imagine anyone not being blessed who was in the presence of such a wise king who provided lavishly for all who were in his court!
But do we not have an even more wise King who always is present with us ready to bless us with His wisdom and lavish provision?
How often do we visit with Him?
Are we dwelling in His wonderful presence, and focusing on His wonderful love?
Or are we missing out on the true happiness that can only be found in Him?
Let’s approach Him in reverence every day so that we may receive of all that He wants to give us! Then we will be truly happy and blessed!
Can you think of a time when you found true happiness in God’s presence? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
Blessings to you.
