THE MAN AFTER GODíS OWN HEART

Post  Fenny West on Thu 20 Mar 2008, 11:11 am

14 But now your kingdom must end, for the Lord has sought out a man after his own heart. The Lord has already appointed him to be the leader of his people, because you have not kept the Lordís command.Ē 1Sam.13:14 (New Living translation)

The mark of a man after Godís own heart can be evidenced from the life of David; after all he was the man directly referred as a man after Godís own heart.

Taking a panoramic view of his life we can identify the following traits:

  • He saw through Godís eyes (1Sam.17, 26,45-47)
  • He loved the Lord with all his heart. (Ps42:1-2, Ps18)
  • He spoke in faith Ps23, (1Sam17:25,32,34, 45-47)
  • He acted in faith (albeit) (1Sam17:49)
  • He matched God-confidence with some self-confidence.(1Sam17:49)
  • When he sinned, he knew how to repent or plead his case with God.(Ps51, 2Sam24:17)
  • He was a man of prayer (Ps.16,18,1Sam30:8)
  • When he prayed he waited for an answer- the Rhema word Ė what the Lord was saying at that particular time, not necessarily the Logos. (1Sam30:8)
  • A man of the Word. (Ps1:1-3)
  • Guards his relationship with God jealously and continues to build and cultivate that intimacy.(Ps27:3-4)
  • He endeavoured to give God his best to God (2 Sam24:24)
  • A man of praise and worship ( ( Ps.27:4, 2Sam.24:24 Ps,18, Ps42:1-2)

Dear Fenny I corrected the font size. Font size 12 is readable, before that it was font size 9. Thank you for your thoughts but I am waiting for a beautiful poem from you, I am missing your poems.

May God bless you

Thanks for correcting the font size, Waqar

I have had a temporary lull, but I am back on my feet, by His grace.
