The Queen of Sheba

1 Kings 10: 1:Now when the queen of Sheba heard about the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came to test him with difficult questions.

The Queen of Sheba: Now when we read chapter 10, we see Solomon in the peak of his blessings, with God’s favor engulfing him all the areas of his life, so much so queen of Sheba  traveled long distance just to see Solomon’s wisdom.  Wow! It was a long trip to Jerusalem of about 1500 miles (2400 km), she did not come for business, trade or for military help but her main purpose was to see the wisdom of Solomon personally.  God watched the queen’s efforts, her passion, her thirst for wisdom, her planning and preparation and therefore she successfully met king Solomon and was able to first hand witness God’s awesomeness through the life of Solomon. 

When you look at the end product of whatever was done through a man/woman of God with wisdom, you can transparently see the wisdom of God flowing in and through. Queen of Sheba was awed, she finally said:

1 King 10: 7”…behold, the half was not told me. You exceed in wisdom and prosperity the report which I heard …9                "Blessed be the LORD your God who delighted in you to set you on the throne of Israel..” She directly pointed to the God of Solomon who was behind all this, clap hands for God!

Jesus also in the New Testament mentions about Queen Sheba, He said:

Matthew 12:42 "The Queen of the South will rise up with this generation at the judgment and will condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon.”

Queen of Sheba did not ask for signs or sit in her country and say, ‘we have people of wisdom too', but she took the journey to travel to Jerusalem to witness the power of God for herself.  Are you such a seeker???

I would like to close this sermon with my testimony, I have given my website link towards the end, you can click to read my full testimony given in the front page, you may subscribe for my Daily Delight Devotions, also you can follow me on facebook:

I started seeking for God and His Word ravenously , voraciously like one who was famished for several years, yes, I had been a dead Christian until that point of time, when God entered my life through sickness, pain and dark valley.  While in the emergency ward, I started reading the Bible and also taking notes from my hospital bed. This habit continued even after my healing, I would carry  two diaries with me along with my big Bible, pens, pencils and colorful high lighteners, I would carry all this neatly in a bag and it was called the Bible bag in our family, my family noticed my insatiable hunger for God and His Word.  They would affectionately tease me for carrying this bag along with me all the time, later my husband got saved, my daughter got saved and then my son Joshua too.  There are 4 Bible bags now in our family, filled with the exact items that I carried in my bag, except me, the other 3 of them: my husband, son and daughters are trained pastors now.  God’s glory will fill your life too when you seek Him with all your heart!
