Lazaroo – Friday, July 16, 2010

Jul 16, 2010 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with a heart of trust-filled worship:

“I devoted myself to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done under heaven.”
(Ecclesiastes 1:13)

It’s not surprising that a man of Solomon’s caliber would devote himself to one or two fields of study.

But a study of “all” that is done under heaven?

Unimaginable.

What made him think he could successfully tackle such a task, Jesus?

Was it the fact that You blessed him with more wisdom than anyone before or after him – until You Yourself walked this earth as the promised Messiah?

In any case, his experiment was a failure.

Not only was he unable to grasp everything You do under heaven

but the tiny piece he explored
baffled and depressed him so much that he pronounced it:

“Meaningless! Meaningless!”
“Everything is meaningless!”

But it isn’t.

Not to You.

Instead…

Your handiwork inspires me to fall on my face in utter amazement…

and worship.

    Dear George: I like you too wonderful if Soloman, the wisest man in the world went to heaven, I too, search the scriptures and nothing on this topic was found. I choose
    to believe that God forgiveness endures forever. I think
    we should always want to believe the positive of a person
    until the “WORD” of the Lord says something diffrent!
    What if this were you or I ,wouldn’t we want others to think
    positive about God’s forgivenss for us. Judgement for others we must be REAL careful about. Again, Why can’t
    we think positive about Soloman’s forgiveness from God?

  2. George Gilbert Says:

    Do you think Soloman made it to heaven? He wrote for the most part a couple or more of the books of the Bible but his 700 wives and 300 concubines led him astray to worship foreign gods. God is a jealous God and I don’t remember reading anyplace that he repented of idolatry? It’s just something that I’ve been meditating on.
