Seek Wisdom

“God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore.” ~ 1 Kings 4:29 ~

The greatness of Solomon’s kingdom was established on the wisdom of God (Story background: 2 Chronicles 1:7-12). The empire of Israel reached her zenith under his rule, through a rather unique model of expansion for its time, because it grew and flourished largely without sword or aggression.

On the contrary, neighbouring kingdoms, noting his famed wisdom and the prosperity of Israel under his charge, willingly sought to become Israel’s allies and vassal states. As, they saw the blessings that could come by association.


“Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.” ~ Proverbs 3:13,14 ~

Listen to the song clip “Establish Today”, with a heart desiring to understand Him and His ways. Let us seek to encounter His wisdom, for ourselves and our nation, especially in this year of Singapore’s Jubilee.

This song is based on Solomon’s prayer on the occasion of the dedication of the Temple (2 Chron. 6:12–7:1).

It was this prayer of his heart that brought down the glory of God.

“By wisdom the LORD laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; by his knowledge the deeps were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew.” ~ Proverbs 3:19 ~

ESTABLISH TODAY

O Lord, God of Israel
There is no God like you
In heaven or on earth
Keeping covenant
Showing steadfast love
To your servants
Who walk before You with all their hearts

Establish today, what You have promised
Establish today, Your word
That when we pay close attention to our ways
With our hearts walk in Your law
You will come and Love will be established
You will reign, through our way

O Lord, God of Israel
Arise to Your Rest, in us today
Take the throne in our hearts
Establish in our lives
Your rule, Your reign, Your ways

Establish today, what You have promised
Establish today, Your word
That when we have sinned, and bring our hearts to You
In humility return
You will hear from heaven and forgive
And restore to us Your word and ways

O Lord, God of Israel
Fill us with Your Rest, today
Amidst uncertainty, trouble and toil
Establish in our lives
Your rule, Your reign, Your ways…

Establish today, what You have promised
Establish today
