What you think about yourself does not change God's purposes for you

Read 1 Kings 3:1-13
Often we allow what we think about ourselves to stop God’s purposes for us. The great Solomon of the Bible seemed to think he was inferior and ill-prepared for what God had planned for him.
1 Kings 3:7 ‘I am like a little child who doesn’t know his way around.’ 
He may have felt like this but this was not the truth, and it was certainly not what God thought about him. God had a great plan for Solomon. If he had paused and elected to believe what He thought about himself, he could have missed what God had planned for him.
But he chose to move past what he thought of himself and had the courage to ask God to help him and to step into God’s plan for his life. As a result God gave him what he asked for and also for what he did not ask for!

1 Kings 3:12-13 ‘I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for—both riches and honor—so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings.’
