You have a question and you want it answered. Therefore, you go to someone whom you trust will know the answers. That is what the Queen of Sheba did, “So Solomon answered all her questions; there was nothing so difficult for the king that he could not explain it to her” (1Ki 10.3).
First, let me say this. Many people want to make the meeting between Solomon and the Queen of Sheba a sexual one, but nowhere does the biblical text hint at such an encounter. Time magazine once made the argument that such happened, and I wrote the magazine and they acknowledged their mistake.
Second, it was not so much Solomon who had the answers for her difficult questions, but God gave the king his wisdom. Yes, she had to go to Solomon, even as we go to Solomon or Paul or Jeremiah, but ultimately we are going to God for all the answers to life.
Do you go to Him for the answers you need? DR
Remember His Words
Remembering the words of Jesus will do much to rid your life of fear and sorrow, as it finally did for the women who had gone to the tomb of Jesus to tend to His body with spices.
When they saw two men in shining garments, Luke shows us this, “Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, ‘Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’ And they remembered His words” (Luke 24.5–8).
Then rather than having fear and sorrow, they ran to tell the apostles what had happened.
You read and meditate in the Scriptures, but now be sure to remember what you have put into your heart and mind by applying what you have read. You will feel better. DR
