1 Chronicles 22:12 NKJV
Only may the Lord give you wisdom and understanding, and give you charge concerning Israel, that you may keep the law of the Lord your God.
David encouraged his son, Solomon to be courageous and build the temple David wanted to build for God. Then he expressed his desire that God would give Solomon wisdom and understanding that would enable him to keep the law of God. He knew that if Solomon kept God’s word it would bring him success. Many people have physical copies of God’s Word but very little understanding to know how to live by it. Reading the Bible will give you knowledge but we need the help of the Holy Spirit to get understanding. Understanding helps us properly apply what we know, and success is the end result. May God give us understanding today and help us experience the success He intended us to enjoy.
