So, after looking at a very small part of God’s heart, and what caused God to say David was a man after His heart, do you desire God’s heart in the matters of your life? Humbleness, reverence, trust, love, devotion, obedience, wisdom, and faithfulness are characteristics of David’s heart.
Romans 8:28 states, “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Here is more of the love of God. He causes everything that we go through in this life to work together for good. What an amazing verse. Think about it. The God of the entire universe works that job that you didn’t get to work for your good and His glory. God causes that flat tire to work for your good and His glory. Maybe there was bad accident that you would have gotten into if not for that flat tire. God works that disease out for your good and His glory. God took our daughter home to be with Him and will work it out for our good and His glory.
Finally, when praying worship God, praise God, and ask God to intercede. There are times in our lives that are emergencies. I couldn’t do anything else but to ask God to save my family when my wife was in the middle of the C-section. However, those moments that are not emergencies should be used to bring your fears to God and left there with Him. Praise and worship invites God into the circumstance.
Since he was a young shepherd, David knew how to access the presence of God. He knew how to call upon the name of God. Scripture tells us in 1 Samuel 13:14 that God considered David to be a man after His own heart.
