1 And Solomon made affinitie with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and tooke Pharaohs daughter, and brought her into the citie of Dauid, vntill he had made an end of building his owne house, and the house of the Lord, and the wall of Ierusalem round about.
6 And Solomon said, Thou hast shewed vnto thy seruant Dauid my father great mercy, according as he walked before thee in trueth, and in righteousnesse, and in vprightnesse of heart with thee, and thou hast kept for him this great kindnesse, that thou hast giuen him a sonne to sit on his throne, as it is this day.
11 And God said vnto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thy selfe long life, neither hast asked riches for thy selfe, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies, but hast asked for thy selfe vnderstanding to discerne iudgement;
12 Behold, I haue done according to thy word: loe, I haue giuen thee a wise and an vnderstanding heart, so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like vnto thee.
15 And Solomon awoke, and behold, it was a dreame: and he came to Ierusalem, and stood before the Arke of the Couenant of the Lord, and offered vp burnt offerings, and offered peace offerings, and made a feast to all his seruants.
26 Then spake the woman whose the liuing childe was, vnto the king, (for her bowels yerned vpon her sonne) and she said, O my lord, giue her the liuing childe, and in no wise slay it: But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but diuide it.

I agree with Brother Dickson that the Holy Spirit and obedience to His commandment will see us through.
May the good Lord see us through

In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night, and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.

1 Kings 3 is teaching two important things; first we can do the will of God with the help of the Holy Spirit. In verses 12-13 Solomon asked for wisdom and understanding for the service of God. Secondly in verse 13 we must keep the commandments of God in truth and spirit, God cannot bless us without keeping His commandments.

WHENEVER YOU THINK OF SOLOMON, YOU THINK OF WISDOM. SO MY VIEW ON THIS CHAPTER IS BASED ON MY OBSERVATION ON HOW WE MUST HUMBLE OURSELVES AND ACCEPT GOD'S WORD, TRUST GOD'S WORD, AND DEPEND ON THE SPIRIT TO TEACH AND DIRECT. THEREBY, OBTAINING THE STRONGEST DEBTS OF WISDOM POSSIBLE.
