Scripture: 1 Kings 2:1-4
The initial charge to Solomon as he assumed the King’s office consisted of being told to obey God’s Word. If he would do the Word, then God would fulfill His covenant with David establishing a Godly line of rulers. David’s’ initial charge to Solomon was all about keeping covenant. If we want God to keep His covenant promises with us, then we must walk in His ways and do His Word. David understood the platform from which his Kingly authority flowed. He communicated that to Solomon and made it very, very obvious. That has to be our beginning point for Kingly judicial authority. As long as we are obedient to the Word to the best of our ability then we can declare God’s covenant justice as led by the Holy Spirit!
