Wisdom and salvation …

1 Kings 3:16-5:18; Acts 12:19b-13:12; Psalm 74:18-23

“God gave Solomon wisdom” (1 Kings 4:29). When wisdom is recognized as God-given, the people of God say, “Praise be to the Lord today” (1 Kings 5:7). True ministry, which promotes “wisdom unto salvation”, is based on the prompting of the Spirit and leads to the proclamation of the Word (Acts 13:4-5). The work of the Lord is to be done by those who are controlled by the Lord. “Do not hand over the life of your dove to wild beasts” (Psalm 74:19). The dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. The  beast is a symbol of evil. This is a prayer that we may be led by the Holy Spirit. It’s a prayer that we will be delivered from evil.
