Well, I didn't blog yesterday, but the Bible reading was on Solomon's blessings of the tabernacle, and, once again, God reassured him, that if he would walk in His ways, and obey and worship Him, that all would go well.
It is the same for us, if we walk in His ways, obey and worship Him, He will orchestrate circumstances on our behalf that we will never see what is strategized against us, hallelujah!
Oh yeah, I forgot, Solomon gave Hiram (the man who orchestrated the tabernacle and his house) 20 cities as payment. So Hiram goes to look at the cities and calls them "good for nothing." Was his heart already turning?

Solomon's Additional Achievements
This is the house that Solomon built for Pharoah's daughter to live in as his wife. She could not live in his house because she was not an Israelite.

Prosperity and Wisdom of Solomon's Reign
A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon.1 Unless the LORD builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the LORD guards the city,
The watchman stays awake in vain.
2 It is vain for you to rise up early,
To sit up late,
To eat the bread of sorrows;
For so He gives His beloved sleep
We must have the LORD involved in EVERYTHING. There is nothing else.
