One of Israel’s greatest kings was a man named Solomon. He had an encounter that shows God up close and personal.

1 Kings 3:5

5 At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and God said, "Ask for whatever you want me to give you."

In the verses prior, we find that Solomon ‘loved’ the Lord. In fact, Solomon had just offered a sacrifice to God of one thousand burnt offerings! Solomon was the son of David, a man whom noted as having a special connection to the heart of God. It’s not surprising that Solomon learned extravagant worship and leadership from his renowned father David.

Even though the appearance of God was just a dream, the outcome took place in reality.  Do you know that God is generous? Do you know that He wants to give you the desires of your heart?

God has such respect for human choice and free will. He did not tell Solomon what to ask for, but gave the choice to Solomon. The Father respects you and wants you to think about what you really need from Him.  Do you know what to ask Him for?
