But before this happened there was an incident when I was sleeping and holy spirit whispered in my ear.
Delight thyself also in LORD; and he shall give thee desires of thine heart.
What?, I hadn't heard or read that verse in at least a year or two. "Where was it now, if I'm not mistaken I think it was psalms 37:5". No it was psalms 37:4. Close enough for me since they both coincide with each other.
So, What is point that God wanted me to get so I could tell you about it?
Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
We know that since God did this for Solomon He will do same for you because He is not a respecter of persons.
God said Matthew 21:22 "And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive". was same as Him saying "Ask what I shall give thee". like He told King Solomon in 1 Kings 3:5.
We know that God said we do not receive when we ask because we ask for a selfish reason. James 4:3.
We know we must pray prayer of faith in which we must believe we receive. Matthew. 21:22.
We know that it pleases God to ask for a heart of understanding righteousness and wisdom so that we could be a blessing to others like Solomon did. 1 Kings 3:5
We know that when Solomon asked for righteousness and wisdom that pleased God very much and he also gave Solomon both riches, and honour in addition to righteousness and wisdom.
We know that if we delight in Gods ways, He will also give us desires of our heart just like He gave Solomon because Solomon pleased God with his desire to be a good king and judge righteously for sake of God's people and not for his own self or selfish ambitions.
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
But of course if you have a father like king David in which your mother is desire of his heart, you'll have a head start on learning curve from rest of us peasants.
Hey, we may not be kings but what's even better is that we are joint heirs with king of kings Jesus Christ!
Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
