1 Kings 10:1
“And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came to prove him with hard questions.”
She traveled a great distance to see Solomon arrayed in the greatness of his wisdom.
1 Kings 10:2
“And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.”
She was curious whether what she heard was true or not.
1 Kings 10:3
“And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not any thing hid from the king, which he told her not.”
She heard all his answers to her questions and was astounded as the vastness of his wisdom and wealth.
1 Kings 10:4-5
“And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon's wisdom, and the house that he had built, And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the LORD; there was no more spirit in her.”
She came seeking wisdom, for she had heard Who gave Solomon his.
She found what she was looking for indeed was true.
1 Kings 10:6
“And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom.”
She bestowed gifts to Solomon, and received even more in return.
1 Kings 10:13
“And king Solomon gave unto the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, beside that which Solomon gave her of his royal bounty. So she turned and went to her own country, she and her servants.”
Jesus Christ even referred to her when certain of the scribes and Pharisees asked for a sign from Him.
“The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.”
The Queen Of Sheba serves as an example that when we seek the Lord, we are certain to find Him and much more…abounding Wisdom.
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.”
Ezekiel 3-4 | Ephesians 2 | Psalm 60-61
