The Wisdom of Solomon
SOLOMON Sunday, May 31, 2015
1 Kings 2:10-12  –  Kingship was transferred from David to Solomon.While alot happens during Solomon’s 40 year reign there are probably 3 things that come to people’s mind when they hear about Solomon; His Wisdom. His Wives. His Worship. 8 Principles on Wisdom Wisdom is the master key to all the treasures in life (2 Chr.1:11-12). The fear of God is the beginning of Wisdom (Pro.9:10). Wisdom is more powerful than the weapons of war (Ecc. 9:18). Right relationships increase your wisdom (Pro.13:20). Wisdom is better than material wealth (Pro.16:16) The wise welcome correction (Pro.8:8-9). When you increase your wisdom you increase your wealth (Pro.14:24). The Word of God is the source of wisdom (Pro. 2:6). 1 Kings 3:1-9  –  Take note of the fact that this was a dream.  Also notice that Solomon did not pray for money, power or success – He prayed for understanding and discernment. It is believed that Solomon wrote 3 books in the OT – Proverbs, which is filled with wisdom and life lessons. Ecclesiastes, a book probably written latter in life and possibly during a times of depression. Song of Solomon, a love story Throughout the life of Solomon he made many mistakes, but in spite of all that, we find God using him to accomplish great things. James 1:5-8  –  There are 3 things to focus on in this time of prayer; Acknowledge you need wisdom. Ask for it without embarrassment. Ask for it in faith with no doubt (This is the first key of wisdom). John 14:25-27  –  There are two things the Holy Spirit wants to do for us in this arena; Teach us all things. Bring to our remembrance the principles and promises of God’s word.

    Life Style of Worship and War
    (David) A Lifestyle of Worship and War Through the Bible 2015 May 24, 2015 with Tim and Nicole McLeod In asking for a king God’s people refused personal responsibility...
    Characteristics of David as a Worshiper and a Warrior 1.He impacts the atmosphere. “A personal encounter is the only way to have the truth of who God is revealed - this is the knowing that goes from the mind to the heart. This knowing leads to a proper perspective of who God is and who we are, which then leads to a powerful posture of Worship.”
    A Lifestyle of Worship Cries out Daily: “Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And I will glorify Your name forevermore.” Pslam 86:11 – 12
    When you live a lifestyle of worship you find delight in not only being rightly loved by God, but desiring to rightly love God. “There is no satisfaction for a soul but in God, and in his good will towards us, and his good work in us; yet that satisfaction will not be perfect till we come to heaven.” Psalm 17:15
    2.David has a reputation as a man of valor / a man of war 1 Samuel 16:18 One of the servants answered, "I have seen a son of Jesse of Bethlehem who knows how to play the lyre. He is a brave man and a warrior. He speaks well and is a fine-looking man. And the LORD is with him."
    3.David understood the strategy of war
    Don’t fight battles God did not tell you to fight. 1 Corinthians 9:26
    4.As a worshipper, David knew who he was in the face of rejection. 1 Sam 17: 33 – 37
    5.As a worshipper David recognizes the invasion of a “foreign” force David recognizes the voice of discouragement & as a worshiper he is able to silence it. Psalm 6:6-7 & Psalm 41:11 & 1Sam 17:26 & 1 Sam 17:32
    THE GOAL OF DISCOURAGEMENT IS TO DIMINISH THE SPREADING OF THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE BEST WAY TO DO THAT IS TO STOP A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST. TO EXECUTE THE WILL TO WAR.
    Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."

    Seven Symptoms of Insecurity 1. Unteachable and unapproachable It’s a dangerous thing when you ask God to approve your desires instead of asking God first what He desires for you. This leads to two responses; The first is to become irreligious. The second is what I call overly religious. 2: Jealous and Envious You can tell jealousy is working in your life when you find it impossible to celebrate others victories. 3. Blame Transfer When you are insecure in yourself you cannot face your own faults. When you cannot face your own faults and cannot repent of them. 4. Control Anything Saul couldn’t control he tried to destroy. 5. Anger and Emotional Instability 6. Spiritual Compromise 7.  Fear Of Man Real Community Group Notes Read 1 Samuel 17 What was it about Goliath  that most deeply offended David? What does the story of David and Goliath teach us about the character of God? Review the contrasting responses of David and Saul.  When it comes to difficult or seemingly impossible situations whose response do you most identify with?

    Ruth and Naomi
    The greatest need of our world today is fathers because fathers bring identity to their sons and daughters. And identity is so important, for from the womb of identity destiny and purpose are born.
    Jeremiah 1:5 Psalm 139:16 Ephesians 2:10
    People have a choice. They may choose to live out their "God" name or destiny God never intended for them to live.
    Esther's Hebrew name was Hadassah: myrtle tree. Her persian name was Esther: Star
    We have collective predestined destiny as the body of christ, and that is to show forth His praises and bring His light into the dark places.
    We have a role identity e.i. wife, mother, father...But we must also have individual purpose as unique children of the king.
    Jabez 1 Chronicles 4:9-10. Jabez' name meant pain. Part of Jabez prayer was "That I may cause no one pain." Jabez couldn't help what his mother named him, but he did two things to change his destiny.
    He did foundational purpose work. "Jabez was more honerable than his brothers."
    He cried out to God.
    Naomi's name meant Joy. But she said call me Mara:bitterness. For her circumstances had shaped her.
    You are more than your scars! You are more than your pain! You are more than the bitter days that you have lived through! Sometimes your circumstances are at war with your identity. But in those times remember you "God" name.
    What has God called you to do in this world. It is wrapped up in your unique talents and gifts.
