i had always wanted to share some thoughts about David, son of Jesse, one of the greatest kings of Israel.
its not about his greatness but more of him being a man after God's heart. david was remembered as that in Acts 13:22.
david had an unchangeable belief in the faithful and forgiving nature of God. He sinned, but was quick to genuinely confess with his heart. david experienced the joy of forgiveness even though he had to suffer the consequences of his sins. amidst the greatness, of being a shepherd, poet, musician, giant-killer, king, ancestor of Jesus, he is also a betrayer, liar, adulterer and murderer.
i see the journey of his life very similar to many of our own.
i see how God grew a youth into one of the greatest men in the Bible. from a shepherd in the fields to a king of God's people.
a man after God's heart.
stand firm in God's ways with faith.
' ...but what does the Lord require of thee, but to act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? '. Micah 6:8
