21/3: Possible with God

1 Kings 5:7-12

Reflection
God is the one that promotes peace so the wisdom that is above will lead to peace and reconciliation.
“But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.” – James 3:17 (NLT)
Solomon was not greedy and envious of Hiram’s cedar. He could have used violence to take the cedar so that he does not have to pay anything for it but instead he gets it by using a peaceful method. Solomon with his God-given wisdom honoured his word by providing Hiram faithfully with food year after year, and Hiram provided cedar and pine logs. Honouring your word will lead to trust, and trust will lead to peace and prosperity.

Application
I need to recognize wisdom from above, a wisdom that promotes peace. I need to honour my word to people so that trust can be established and that will lead to peace.

Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to promote peace wherever I go. Help me to honour my word so that people can see who you are and give glory to Your name.
