When God scans the earth for potential leaders. He is not on a search for ANGELS (angel have greater power than humans, and they exist in heaven, or the spirit realm; they possess greater knowledge and their ultimate role is to praise & glorify God ) Luke 15: 10 “Even so , I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner repenting “ in the flesh. He is certainly not looking for perfect people, since there none. He is searching for COMMON men and women like you and me, mere people after God’s heart. People who are deeply sensitive to spiritual things, whose hearts are His – completely. 2 Chronicles 16: 9 ” For Yahweh’s eyes run back and forth throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them those heart is perfect toward him. Herein you have done foolishly; for from henceforth you shall have wars. “
But, God is also looking for people who share the same qualities He found into DAVID ” the boy, the shepherd “. Acts 13: 22 “…I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do. “ Obviously, David ” the boy “ was ” Humble “(near the ground; not high or lofty) (Psalm 62: 9 ” Surely men of low degree are just a breath, and men of high degree are a lie. In the balances they will go up. They are together lighter than a breath. “) – For other David’s qualities I would live you the opportunity to found the Bible quotations in your subsequent Bible’s studies. David was –” Reverent ( showing respect or reverence ); Respectful ( marked or characterized by respect ); Trusting ( reliable ); Devoted ( vowed; dedicated; consecrated ); Loving ( affectionate; expressing a large amount of love to other people ); Recognition ( the act of recognizing or the condition of being recognized ); Faithful ( reliable; worthy of trust ); Obedient ( willing to comply with the commands, orders, or instructions of those in authority ); Repentant ( feeling or showing sorrow for wrongdoing ). “
David’s example is a great road map for how Christians are to live on life.Which of these areas need greatest attention for improvement for you & I?
What does it mean, to be a person after God’s own heart? It means your LIFE is in harmony with the Lord. What is important to Him is important to you. What burdens Him burdens you. John 14: 16 ” I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever. “ When He says ” Go to the right “ you go to the right. When He says” stop that in your life “ you stop it. When he says ” this is wrong and I want you to change “ you come to terms with it because you have a heart for God.
John 14: 23 ” Jesus answered him, ” if a man loves me, he will keep my word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our home with him “. “
This is the bottom line for Biblical Christianity.
