A Man after God’s Heart

Scripture reading: Samuel 23:17                                                   Key Verse Acts 13:22

When He had removed him, He raised up for them David them David as King, to whom also He gave testimony and said, “I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.”

Hidden within the text of ll Samuel 23:13-17 is a revealing detail of King David’s life. The Philistines had captured Bethlehem, David’s birthplace, and established a garrison there. The city was shut up: no one could go in and no one could leave. David was in his stronghold in the nearby cave of Adullam. There was selected members of his mighty men, David plotted the next attack against the enemy.

There he longingly expressed a desire for a drink of water from the well of Bethlehem. As his men listened to his words, their devotion for their commander was stirred. Three of the men risked their lives by crossing enemy lines to bring a single cup of Bethlehem’s water to David. When he saw what they had done, David’s heart was humbled. He refused to drink the water, choosing instead to pour it out as a drink offering to God.

David recognized the valor of his men, but he also understood that only God was worthy of such devotion.The other aspect to this story is that David refused to elevate himself above the others.

The entirety of David’s heart was humbly committed to God. That is why God said of David: “He is a man after My own heart.” In God’s eyes, humility is a sign of greatness and obedience a characteristic of those who immediately walk with God.

Dear God, help me walk humbly and obediently with You. Make me a person after your own heart.

To God Be The Glory In All Things
