April 19, 2024

The Queen of Sheba visited King Solomon and brought camels loaded with spices, gold, and precious stones. The queen had heard rumors of all God had done for Solomon and his great wisdom and wanted to see if the rumors were true. She found out that what she heard paled in comparison to what she witnessed. Solomon told her everything she asked about, holding nothing back. 

Blessed be the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the LORD loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice. 1 Kings 10:9

I found the previous verse to be very interesting because she admired him for his judgments and justice and understood that God loved Israel, which is why He had placed Solomon on the throne. Solomon was a great king, that was wealthy and powerful, but think about Jesus and how much greater he is than Solomon. 

Reflecting on the story of the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon, we can draw parallels to our current situation. The leadership of the United States, in its ruthlessness and carelessness, echoes the need for a just and fair ruler. Could it be that God has allowed such leadership to make us yearn for our true King, Jesus, and his righteous judgments? The day will come when they will be held accountable for their actions. Come, Lord Jesus; we await your return.
