In 1 Kings 3:5 we read, one night the Lord appeared to King Solomon in a dream, and said, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.”

Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for both wealth and honor so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings v 13

The Bible tells the story of a poor, crippled man in Acts 3 who was carried daily, and laid at the Temple gate, to beg.
When the lame beggar saw Peter and John he asked for alms. Peter looked him and said, “I don’t have silver or gold, but I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk!”
Peter took him by the hand, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet, praising God!
The beggar was expecting some money but he got something that money couldn’t buy. This beggar not only was healed, he also received an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
