think about it.
What does Solomon ask for the people? For himself? What do you need to dedicate to the Lord today?
Solomon's prayer to dedicate the Temple isn't a prayer that I've paid much attention to in the past. For whatever reason, I had never really stopped to consider it too carefully. So I spent some time reading and re-reading this prayer and thinking about Solomon, his actions and what was taking place here. The first words out of Solomon's mouth caught my attention and set the tone for the whole passage. "O Lord, God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven or on earth…" (verse 14). Yes, Solomon was dedicating the Temple, but his words revealed a heart dedicated to God as well.
So how can we make sure our hearts and prayers reflect an attitude of "there is no God like you"? What will you say to God today that will let Him know just how much He means to you?Tami W.
