I love today. Praise God for His many blessings! Let’s read: 1 Kings 4, Psalm 72, and Psalm 127. Solomon’s history, along with a couple of his psalms:
I always like it when we recognize names – in one of his psalms here, Solomon writes
“deck Him out in gold with Sheba gold” (Psalm 72:16 MSG)
We remember Queen Sheba and her gifts to Solomon! Gold is one thing, but SHEBA gold was another! 2 Chronicles 9:9 said she brought four and a half TONS! That brings a different tone to the psalm, doesn’t it? What is the best gift we can offer to the Lord? How can we deck Him our ins Sheba-style gold? Solomon explains it to us:
“Deck Him out in Sheba gold.
Offer prayers unceasing to Him,
bless Him from morning to night” (Psalm 72:16 MSG)
