SOLOMON ACHIEVED UNCOMMONLY
These are lessons learnt from the book – Secrets of the Richest man ever lived by the popular prosperity theologian and song-writer Dr. Mike Murdock.
Solomon decided to do something that has never been done before. A very short yet powerful introductory word that started the book is: “Solomon was an Uncommon Achiever.
Uncommon Achievers are different.
In a doubting world, they believe.
In a slow world, they run.
In a weeping world, they laugh.
In a quitting world, they persevere”
That’s who they are!!!!”
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (NIV)
Through this book, there is something I saw in the life of Solomon and it is that he got instructions for everything he did, the temple of God, his palace,leading God’s people among others. King Solomon was a man that was given to instructions, before taking a step or decision, he got directions from God and acquired knowledge from whoever has the information he needed at that point in time.
Let’s see a brief of one of the achievements Solomon had; The Temple of God, that temple built by Solomon in those days in this time is estimated to be well over $500 billion over a period of seven years, and it is unimaginable for a single building in this days, that cost is more than some country’s budget for seven years. How did he get it done, He got it in no other way but by getting detailed instructions, for every step he was about to take he got instructions. Point to note: Solomon was a man given to getting instructions.
Solomon the son of David was a brilliant man just like his father, they both knew how to access the mind of God, they know how to turn it in their favour, David was that man in the bible that knew how to reach out to God even with all his sinful ways, he knew how to worship and praise God, Solomon was no different because whenever he needs direction from God, he offers mighty offerings and words of humble surrender as you would see in 1 Kings 3:7,9, when he came and said something “I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in, give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?” [KJV] Point to note here is this: Solomon was a man that gave it his all, whatever was needed in order to get directions he needs to succeed, he was ready to give his time, resources and wisdom, will you be like Solomon and be an uncommon achiever?
Psalm 118:8 “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.” (The Bible)
In the book of the bible; Ecclesiastes, Solomon the writer wrote in Ecclesiastes 1:13, he says, And I gave my heart to search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven.” If you notice in the scripture above, he said he gave his heart out, his heart was sold out to receive directions and instructions concerning ALL things, everything on earth!!!! No wonder the unparalleled level of success.
Solomon’s life also had his own failures and struggles in it, he missed the leading of God at times, he got drunk with power to marry 300 wives and have about 700 concubines, and he had a bad ending because he went away from his Source of wisdom and understanding.
