AFTER GOD'S OWN HEART
The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.
1 Samuel 16:7
David developed a heart towards God that none of his brothers shared. He learned to trust God in all things. When a lion or bear attached the flock, David depended on God for the courage and strength to wrestle them down. In his isolation, he wrote psalms of praise, thanksgiving and prayers expressing his love for God.
David is honored with this incredible descriptor, not because he was perfect but because his heart was attuned to the Lord.
He seeks those who will trust Him, who are characterized by compassion and who act when He directs. This is what makes a person after God's own heart and bestows upon them all the blessing and intimacy that comes with ex
periences of God Himself.
Heavenly Father, We long to be people with a heart aligned with Your hear. We ask that You bring us into an ever-deepening trust and dependence on You. Thank You, Lord. Amen
