In today’s QT, queen of Sheba visits Solomon after hearing about his wisdom and relation with the LORD, and she tests him with hard questions, which Solomon answers all. The queen praises the LORD. This is supposedly the peak of Solomon’s reign. From this peak on, it’s downhill for Solomon’s reign. The decline comes from the fact that Solomon fails to keep the LORD’s decrees and marries many wives from all over the place, who bring in worship of false idols. I wonder how much more glorious it would have been had Solomon kept following the LORD’s way.
Recently, lot of people have started posting their QTs, and just reading them, I can wake up spiritually a little. At the same time, there is temptation to skip QT, and or delay, kind of like hitting the snooze button on an alarm clock, and wanting to sleep a little more. The scary thing is that, the more I want to stay asleep, the more I want to asleep even more. I am weak. I don’t want to face this truth. Waking up makes me face this truth. But the good LORD is there to guide me towards HIS direction. The hard part is dragging myself onward towards that direction. This is the best way, the only way to life, but the distractions are just so distracting. The most important thing to remember is that I’m saved no matter what. Just gotta try my best, and it’s not going to be good enough, but it will be made good enough.
