Heart for God

Acts 13:22 22 After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.’ (NIV)

 This is God Who said David was a man after His own heart.  What made David a man after God’s own heart?  One thing is already written here.  David will do everything God wants him to do.  Reading the scriptures about David and the Psalms he wrote we can see other reasons.  David enjoyed worshiping God.  He worshiped Him with all of his being.  David didn’t sit in judgement of those God had anointed (i.e. refusing to kill Saul even though Saul was trying to kill him).  David admitted and repented when he sinned when he became aware of it. (killing Uriah)   We must look at our lives. I’m sure everyone would like God to say they are after His own heart.  Do we do everything God wants us to do?  Do we even know what God wants us to do?  We can’t know if we don’t ask Him and listen to Him.  Are we open to accepting our sins and repenting?  Do we worship God with our entire being?  After we get over the sting of having to answer “not all the time,” lets take some time to ask the Holy Spirit to work in us the kind of heart David had along with his obedience and willing to repent.
