Scripture: acts 13:21-23
In Acts 13:21-23 we have the longest recorded message given by the Apostle Paul in the New Testament. In verses 21-23 he states that David, of all the kings in Scripture, is the one whose heart most reflects that of God Himself. If we can get ahold of that, then we realize that in the shaping and developing of our heart, there are two main options. We will either end up like Saul, doing our own will, or like David, doing God’s will. Those are the choices. The development of the heart has to come in two forms. Either it yields to our own will or fully yields to God’s will. Fully yielding to God’s will is David’s path and also mirrors what Jesus walked. Jesus fully yielded. David fully yielded. David made mistakes, he made errors, he had problems, but in the end he repented and fully yielded. That is what made David a man after God’s own heart. He fully yielded. Are we fully yielding? That is what God is after right now. That is what makes a David.
