1Kings 8: 54-61

And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven. And he stood, and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying,

Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant. The LORD our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us: That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers. And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require: That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else. Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.

Y sucedió que cuando Salomón terminó de decir toda esta oración y súplica al SEÑOR, se levantó de delante del altar del SEÑOR, de estar de rodillas con sus manos extendidas hacia el cielo.  Y se puso de pie y bendijo a toda la asamblea de Israel en alta voz, diciendo:  Bendito sea el SEÑOR, que ha dado reposo a su pueblo Israel, conforme a todo lo que prometió; ninguna palabra ha fallado de toda su buena promesa que hizo por medio de su siervo Moisés.  Que el SEÑOR nuestro Dios esté con nosotros, como estuvo con nuestros padres; que no nos deje ni nos abandone,  para que incline nuestro corazón hacia El, para que andemos en todos sus caminos y para que guardemos sus mandamientos, sus estatutos y sus preceptos que ordenó a nuestros padres.  Y que estas palabras mías, con las que he suplicado delante del SEÑOR, estén cerca del SEÑOR nuestro Dios día y noche, para que El haga justicia a su siervo y justicia a su pueblo Israel, según las necesidades de cada día,  a fin de que todos los pueblos de la tierra sepan que el SEÑOR es Dios; no hay otro.  Estén, pues, vuestros corazones enteramente dedicados al SEÑOR nuestro Dios, para que andemos en sus estatutos y guardemos sus mandamientos, como en este día.

Solomon showed us here how we can come to God in a way that is pleasing to our Maker. He does hear us as long as we walk as sons and daughters of Him. We must always support God’s people Israel no matter what the world tells us. We also must always be willing to claim Him in everything. As the last 2 verses say…there is no other God, and our hearts must be right and perfect before Him. How is your heart with God?

1 Kings 17:1-6

1And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word. 2And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, 3Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. 4And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. 5So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. 6And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.

1 Entonces Elías tisbita, que era de los moradores de Galaad, dijo a Acab: Vive el SEÑOR, Dios de Israel, delante de quien estoy, que ciertamente no habrá rocío ni lluvia en estos años, sino por la palabra de mi boca. 2 Y vino a Elías la palabra del SEÑOR, diciendo: 3 Sal de aquí y dirígete hacia el oriente, y escóndete junto al arroyo Querit, que está al oriente del Jordán. 4 Y beberás del arroyo, y he ordenado a los cuervos que te sustenten allí. 5 El fue e hizo conforme a la palabra del SEÑOR, pues fue y habitó junto al arroyo Querit, que está al oriente del Jordán. 6 Y los cuervos le traían pan y carne por la mañana, y pan y carne al atardecer, y bebía del arroyo.

God is our provider! When we show faith, He will give us our needs. Just like Elijah, if we do according to what God has planned for us and do not turn ourselves, He will sustain us. We are His and He wants the very best for us.

1 Kings 11:38

And it shall be, if you will hearken unto all that I command you, and will walk in my ways, and do what is right in my sight, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as David my servant did; that I will be with you, and build you a sure house, as I built for David, and will give Israel unto you.

“Y sucederá que si escuchas todo lo que te ordeno y andas en mis caminos, y haces lo recto delante de mis ojos, guardando mis estatutos y mis mandamientos, como hizo David mi siervo, entonces estaré contigo y te edificaré una casa perdurable como la que edifiqué a David, y yo te entregaré Israel

This promise made to Solomon by God can also be true for us. If we will listen and heed our heavenly Father, He will bless us in all of our ways and lead us down a path of glory. He will build us a sure house; we must listen and do as He tells us. How do we do this? We read the scripture, we pray and we listen to that “still small voice” which is the Holy Spirit. He will not ask us to do anything contrary to His Word, but He may ask us to do things that are against man’s principals. Oh, Father God, may we always heed You in all ways; please help us to see the correct path. Praise You God; Praise You!
