Daily Devotional
May 26
In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee. And Solomon said . . .
1 Kings 3:5-6 (a)
Although the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream, Solomon answered verbally. In this, I’m reminded of the account in Acts 12, where the Angel of the Lord came to Peter in prison, saying, “Follow me.” Luke writes that Peter “went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision” (Acts 12:9). In other words, had Peter dismissed the Lord’s words as having only ethereal, philosophical meaning, he would have eventually awakened on the hard floor of his prison cell. But, because he took the Lord at His Word and obeyed Him physically, Peter walked out of prison a free man.

Solomon could have taken the Lord’s appearance as nothing more than an encouraging thought - but he didn’t. He opened his mouth and spoke audible words that would result in incredible blessing.

Perhaps the Lord has been speaking to your heart about a certain matter but you have written it off as little more than a good idea. I encourage you to put feet to your faith, to do whatever it is He is asking of you and see if your physical action doesn’t result in a physical response from Him, just as it would with Solomon.
