2010 May 10 - Morning Manna

The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here (Luke 11:31).

Today's Morsel: When we look at King Solomon, Solomon was a man of great wealth and riches. Not only that, Solomon was a man of wisdom. Solomon's wealth came not because he asked God for wealth when he was chosen to be king, but because he asked for an understanding heart to lead God's people; "And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment; Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee. And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days"(1 Kings 3:11-13). Jesus told the religious leaders that a greater than Solomon was among them, referring to Himself. There is none greater than Jesus. John said "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made" (John 1:1-3). When we understand that Jesus was God manifested in flesh (1 Timothy 3:16), we understand that there is none greater than He. Do you know Him?

Sing: The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty, let all the earth rejoice, all the earth rejoice. He wraps himself in light, and darkness tries to hide, it trembles at his voice, trembles at his voice.

How great is our God? Sing with me, how great, is our God? And all will see, how great, how great is our God.
