And now, O Lord my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.  And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.  Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?
Understanding is comprehension to the point of application.
Matthew 13…the enemy steals the word from those who don’t understand it.
Isaiah 11:2…understanding is an anointing of the Holy Spirit.
1 Kings 3:12-14
 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.  And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.  And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.
1 Samuel 18:12
 And Saul was afraid of David, because the Lord was with him, and was departed from Saul.
Just because you have the anointing for the seat doesn’t mean you will take the seat. You have to honor the authority that is over you right where you are. (David honored his dad by taking cheese and bread to his brothers even after he had been anointed to be King).
You may not like the man, but honor the seat of authority that God has put in place. God will not give you a seat you will not honor. You must honor the seat to gain the benefit of it.
1 Samuel 18:12-14
 And Saul was afraid of David, because the Lord was with him, and was departed from Saul.  Therefore Saul removed him from him, and made him his captain over a thousand; and he went out and came in before the people.  And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the Lord was with him.
 Thus saith the Lord , thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.
