2 Chronicles 9:1-2

"And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon, she came to prove Solomon with hard questions at Jerusalem, with a very great company, and camels that bare spices, and gold in abundance, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.
And Solomon told her all her questions: and there was nothing hid from Solomon which he told her not."
2 Chronicles 9:1-2

This is cool. I want to be the queen of Sheba. :) It is amazing to think of having every question of your heart answered. For us, perhaps it isn't as easy as a long camel ride to Jerusalem... but the answers are there for us. God wants to bless us with wisdom, and with the answers to the most pressing questions of the heart. One way to get there is to remember that we aren't all-knowing, or all-powerful. The queen of Sheba knew this... she was a queen in her own right, but when she heard of the wisdom of Solomon, she left her kingdom and came to his. She searched out the man called of God to offer her answers. Another thing that we need to do is to have the questions ready. :) The queen had prepared beforehand. She didn't just come to Solomon and ask him to tell her everything that she needed to know... she found out what she needed to know ahead of time. :) And lastly, we need to be perfectly honest with God and ourselves. The queen of Sheba was... she told Solomon all that was in her heart, and communed with him. When we come before the Lord, either in prayer, or through a priesthood blessing... God will grant us answers, when we prepare for them, when we ask the questions, and when we are sincere and honest with him. God is the source of all wisdom, and offers it to us generously. Sometimes we just have to be humble enough to ask. :) That's what Joseph Smith did... and what an amazing answer he got. :)
