King Solomon was greater in riches and wisdom than all the
other kings of the earth. All the kings of the earth
sought audience with Solomon to hear the wisdom God had put in his heart.
Year after year, everyone who came brought a gift—articles of
silver and gold, and robes, weapons and spices, and horses and mules. 2Chronicles 9: 22-24
Solomon was doing really well; riches, wisdom, fame and
friends in high places, sounds like every man’s dream. He had no want of
anything, we call him blessed. Along with all the blessing and comfort, he also
enjoyed amazing peace all around.
Surely the blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.
10:22 . However, in addition to blings and the other good things of life,
King Solomon seems to have an insatiable appetite for women and he went all out,
this eventually became his downfall because his wives turned his heart away
Money is good; though it probably won’t make you happy, it
definitely gives you options. A wise man said, somethings in life you serve and
some you master. You must master your appetite otherwise when your options increase,
your decisions will be dominated by your feelings. Uncontrolled feelings have
the tendency to lead astray.
Asking for the abundance God promised without first dealing
with your appetite is a bit like heading in the wrong direction and asking for
God’s speed. It will only get you to a wrong place quicker.
I see you break every appetite for the wrong diet and bad habit
in Jesus’ name. Govern your appetite, you’re in charge.
