In the Bible it was said of King David that he was a man after God’s own heart. “And afterward they desired a king: and God gave unto them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years. And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill all my will. Of this man’s seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus:” (Acts 13:21-23). However some people wouldn’t be able to tell it by some of the things he did and the way he lived. He sent Uriah The Hittite to be killed on the front lines of Battle so he could take his wife Bath-Sheba,which God severely judged him for. But David repented and turned to the Lord instead of getting bitter he got better because he knew the Lord’s mercy and had faith in his forgiveness. Read this history in the Book of 2 Samuel chapter11. (King David wrote The Book of Psalms), In Psalms 136:1-27 it says God’s mercy endures Forever in each verse 27 times.
Don’t you want to be a man or woman after God’s own heart and receive of his mercy,love, and forgiveness? King David knew how to get desperate in prayer with God and even change Gods mind.
The Lord has mightily used men and women who have made great mistakes and committed many sins in the Bible because they had great repentance’s such as Samson, Solomon, and Paul who even killed Christians until God knocked him off his horse and he got saved. Has God knocked you off your high horse? So if you want to be a person after God’s own heart just read their stories in the Bible. The Lord even told Isaiah to walk around naked and Ezekiel to lay on his side and eat dung, and Hosea to marry a harlot to show the people how they were making the Lord feel.
So be a man or woman after God’s own heart if you dare, and see how great God’s love and mercies really are.
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
