Notice this description of the man whose name means peace. "And God supernaturally GAVE Solomon wisdom and exceedingly great understanding, and largeness of heart like the sand on the seashore..." (1 Kings 4:29-34).
Favor... and its various degrees and depths is ever so beautiful.
Favor with God... a gift beyond anything this world or our flesh can match or replicate. And, as it applied to the degree of His favor upon Solomon, we can only say it was incalculable, like the sand along the oceans shores.
"...Thus, Solomon's wisdom excelled the combined wisdom of the brightest and best of all his contemporaries..." (1 Kings 4:29-34).
And, as his father penned...
"For who is God, except the Lord? Who is a rock, except our God? It is God who SUPPLIES me with strength and makes my way COMPLETE" (Psalm 18:31).
Yes! May we never miss this or shun His favor... for no one and nothing can supply what is needed or make the life of a believer COMPLETE β except our Rock and forever foundation. It cannot and will not happen for the servant of God any other way... Glory!!!
Favor with God always β out numbers, out last and out does β anything the enemy or enemies have devised or deployed against the servant of God.
Praise God! I need His favor... glory, don't we all! (Psalm 89:20-24)
