Nothing too hard

1 Kings 10

She came to test him with hard questions…

Solomon had answers for all her questions; nothing was too hard for the king to explain to her.

Praise the LORD your God who delights in you and has placed you on the throne of Israel. Because of the LORD'S eternal love for Israel, he has made you king…

Do you remember when you were in school and you would have had homework from the night before and one other student had all the answers? Did you think perhaps that know it all, she is always showing out for the teacher? Did you exclaim wow God delights in her?

Not me. I was the one thinking about what a know it all she was…Sad, but true! I just imagine this queen and we need to keep in mind that she was a queen, herself. Very in tune with people thinking she had answers and she had come to hear Solomon. She had some pretty tough questions in her royal treasure chest, but he knew all the answers.

Solomon was wise and God provided the answers. He provides the answers to the toughest test we may take and it isn't always one we signed up for, but He goes right along with us. He helps hold us up, He helps to comfort us, He gives us wisdom beyond our own understanding because He delights in us just like He did Solomon!

Wow, nothing is too hard for us because of the LORD! So next time, take the hard questions and remember nothing is too hard for the LORD and He is standing right beside you…

Sweet blessings,
