What does your heart say about you?

Shepherd boy, mighty warrior, musician, poet, sinner, saint. These words all describe King David, yet he will always be best known as “A man after God’s own heart.” What was there about David’s heart that distinguished him from everyone else, setting him apart as God’s man? What did God see when He looked at David’s heart?

A believing heart. David had a believing heart. He recognized his need for God and knew God would provide for him and to watch over him, much as David did for the sheep under his own care.

A bold heart. David faced Goliath, focusing not on how enormous Goliath was but on the promise and power of His God. Obstacles didn’t stop David. Do you trust God to defeat the giants in your life? Are you applying the weapons of God’s word and prayer to defeat the power of the enemy in your life?

An inquiring heart. David actively sought God’s will for his life. Repeatedly, we read these words in the first and second chapters of Samuel. “David inquired of the Lord.” With humility he brought every decision before the Lord in prayer, waiting for God’s leading before acting.

A repentant heart. Despite David’s heart for God, he failed when faced with temptation, choosing the passing pleasures of sin over obedience to God. He committed adultery, he lied, and he premeditated a murder. David failed to keep one thing in mind, these actions displeased the Lord. When confronted with his sin, he humbled himself under God’s mighty hand and acknowledged, “I have sinned against the Lord.” Though he faced the consequence of his sin for many years to come, he humbly bowed his knee under God’s sovereignty and continued in praise, worship, and devotion to his God.

God still seeks those whose heart is completely His. What joy to know that, like David, we can become men and women after God’s own heart.

What does God see when He looks at your heart?
