“In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream at night; and God said, ‘Ask what you wish Me to give you’” (1 Kings 3:5).

While the opportunity to ask anything of God evokes thoughts of unimaginable possibilities, it is a request that should not be hastily made for it reveals the deepest desires of one’s heart; our passions and preoccupations. Such petitions to God are both dangerous and indicting; revealing the character of who we are and becoming the basis for how our life will be judged and evaluated. Be careful what you ask for.
