Testimony of Hiram

by | Sep 3, 2020 | Evangelism

And it came to pass, when Hiram heard the words of Solomon, that he rejoiced greatly, and said, Blessed be the Lord this day, which hath given unto David a wise son over this great people. – ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭5:7‬ ‭KJV‬


Let us humble ourselves and let Him reposition us. There are things that we are unable to do, in which we need a divine intervention. In accordance with the above statement, there is a story in the Bible which is of King Solomon. King Solomon could have approached God and asked Him for several materialistic pleasures yet instead he asked the Lord for wisdom.

In this context, King Hiram is amazed and blessed by King Solomon. Hiram is never seen as a worshipper of Yahweh, but here, we see him honouring God when he witnessed the wisdom and passion of King Solomon.

Firstly, Hiram acknowledged the work of God. Secondly, he was astonished by the wisdom of King Solomon and also knew it was God’s work. Thirdly, he said that this group were of great and powerful people.

King Hiram was able to understand these three truths because of King Solomon. King Solomon had prepared to build the temple, laying out strategies and plans to construct it. It was King David’s desire to build the temple of God but it was God’s plan for his heir to do so. King Solomon could have easily got distracted after receiving the wisdom of God and use it for many other things. Instead, he was very passionate and utilized all his resources to build the temple of God.

When we serve the House of God with different manners and make use of our resources in a passionate way, people who do not know God will come and worship. They will acknowledge the anointing upon you from God. They will want to receive the privilege from God.

Let us yearn to be more passionate to build the House of God, as no matter how small the part is you play, do it all for His glory.

When you serve the house of God passionately with everything you have, you will shine His light! Click To Tweet
