1 Kings 8:57-58 May the Lord our God be with us as he was with our ancestors; may he never leave us or abandon us. May he give us the desire to do his will in everything and to obey all the commands, decrees and regulations that he gave our ancestors.
King Solomon was standing over his people giving them a blessing when he said this. When I read it I thought of the story where a father was asking Jesus to heal his child he also asked Jesus to help his unbelief (Mark 9). This verse teaches me that I can ask God to help me have the desire to do His will. I just need the desire to desire to do God's will... I just need a mustard seed of want...then when I ask God will take care of the rest!! There is so much we can do is we just ask God.
