Solomon was aware that he was responsible to watch over God’s people. What about you? Who has God given you to watch over? Take a moment to consider your various spheres of influence. Reflect on the faces and names of the people your life touches in a given day. As each one comes to mind, pause and let God speak to you about them. Remember that God knows each of their names and the challenges they face. Ask Him to guide your words and actions as you interact with them today.
“Your servant is here among the people you have chosen, a great people, too numerous to count or number. So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?”—1 Kings 3:8–9
Prayer: Lord, may I have Your heart for Your people whom You have given me to love, lead, and watch over. In Jesus’ name, amen.
