Today’s reading I Chronicles 27-29
I Chronicles 29:25 And the LORD magnified Solomon exceedingly in the sight of all Israel, and bestowed upon him such royal majesty as had not been on any king before him in Israel.
The beautiful truth to learn today in this verse is that it was the Lord that magnified Solomon exceedingly. I fear that we seek to be magnified. We want to be recognized. We want to exceed all those that came before us and also all those that live in our generation.
We want to be somebody. Solomon got all of that but it was the Lord that did it! It was the Lord that chose to bless and honor him beyond all others.
I should learn to humble myself, not seek my kingdom or my glory but rather seek His. If He chooses to in some way honor me that should be His decision. It is not about me. It is not about my position but His.
I am afraid that too often we have things all out of order! What do you think?
