King Solomon was renowned for being the wisest man. Stories of his wisdom and wealth ran like the Nile River to all the nations. The queen of Sheba heard them as well, and possibly marveled at the wisdom of this King. But how true was the rumors whispered around in her court? She set on a journey with one goal at heart, to test this wise man. To learn the truth for herself and not be amazed by mere stories. We should be like this in our spiritual lives as well: to test everything against the word of God and learn the truth for ourselves. Doing this protects our hearts against false prophet teachings and hearsay of a twisted truth. Take the journey in your spiritual life to find Gods truth.
Prayer: Father, awaken in me the curiosity to search for Your truth only. To journey with You in Your Word and to fall in love with the Truth. Guide me to act like queen Sheba and not be judgmental before I’ve tested everything against Your Word. Amen.
Spiritual Growth: Do you just take the word of others as the gospel or do you test and search the truth for yourself? Take the time today to search Gods Word today for the truth of something you have heard and are unsure about.
