What would you ask for?
If you were granted three wishes by a genie, what would you ask for?
What if you were given a blank cheque from God?
The Kings of Judah
Today we start a new series exploring the lives of the Kings of Judah who came after the great king David. These are the stories told in 2 Chronicles. The lives of the kings serve as examples and lessons for us today as we seek to follow God.
Solomon stepped into a calling that was beyond any human



Solomon became king after his father David. He had some pretty big shoes to fill, contenders for the throne, and a great number of people to lead. It was a job that was beyond anyone. His calling was bigger than him.

Is there anything in your life at the moment that is just simply bigger than you?
God appeared to Solomon and offered him a blank cheque. He could have asked for anything. When things are bigger than we have the capacity to handle we normally ask God to change things outside of us. But that is not what Solomon asked for.
Solomon didn't ask for a change in the external circumstances or the context of his call. He asked for something internal, the wisdom and knowledge to enabling him to lead God's people.

What would it look like to pray that God wouldn't just work for you but would work in you to equip you and enable you?
All else will be added unto you
Solomon didn't miss out on all the other things he could have asked for. And neither will we.

"Seek first the Kingdom of God and all else will be added unto you." Jesus.
Jesus has given you a blank cheque

Discusion Questions
1. What stands out most to you about the episode from Solomon's life in the passage above?
2. If you had a blank cheque from God what would you ask for?
3. Is there (or has there ever been) anything in your life at the moment that seems too big for you to deal with? (calling/challenge/crisis/conflict etc.)
4. What kind of prayers do you tend to pray in that situation?
5. What would it look like to pray not just for a change in external circumstances but for God to equip and enable you for the circumstances?

Take some time to pray for one another as you feel lead.
