Solomon Wasn’t Smart Enough to Avoid getting Knocked off His Feet

Solomon the wisest man in the Bible was knocked off his feet several times and turned away from God for a season because of one thing and that one thing was making poor choices. He married many women who believed differently then he did and turned his heart away from God. In essence Solomon wanted what Solomon wanted however in doing this his emotions overruled his wisdom and common sense. He allowed his poor choices to bring trouble into his life thereby robbing him of the peace of God. If Solomon would of allowed himself accountability they would have kept his head and heart together to bring our emotions back to our wisdom and common sense.
How many times will a boyfriend and a girlfriend allow their emotions to overrule their wisdom and common sense. Many children have been brought into this world by our emotions, where wisdom and common sense were thrown out the window.
We need accountability partners who are full of the Spirit and full of wisdom to keep our emotions in check when we are tempted to stray from the narrow way.
More importantly we need to start making right choices by asking God to direct our pathway through the Holy Spirit and give us the ears to hear what the Spirit is saying. To hear his still small voice above the loud cries of the world lobbying for our attention.
Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
This is a truth you can take to prayer every time and come out with a faith that can move mountains.
John 16:13 (NKJV) However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
He will guide you into all truth to show you things to come provided we are listening.

Intimacy With Christ,
Richard
