David’s Finest Moment

Image result for king david in bibleDavid’s finest moment is not winning battles or not killing Saul. It’s when he is confronted by Nathan for his sin with Bathsheba, and he accepts responsibility and humbles himself before God.

David is different than others kings — both in the past and leaders of today. He does not have the arrogance they have, and he repents.

Although the consequences of David’s sin is far-reaching (one of David’s sons will rape his sister and another will kill his brother and launch a coup against David himself), by admitting he sinned, David is a man after God’s own heart.

  1. Atoz, I also agree with your post about David. I have this poem in my book.

    A SINNER

     

    There is a bible story about David, the King

    Mostly when talked about, it is about his sin

    What I see is a story of Grace and Restoration

    Rejoicing I thank God, there is no separation

     

    David

    A man after God’s own heart

    He was the greatest sinner

    And yet You called him that

    What did he do? He loved you

    Repenting for a start

    Accepting what sin did to him

    He never turned his back

     

    Lord let me learn a lesson

    From this man who stole Your heart.

    COMMENT ON A SINNER

    One of my favorite stories in the Bible is the story of David. David had many qualities described in his own writings.

    He was trusting

    Psalm 27:1

    The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear

    He was loving

    Psalm 18:1

    I love you, O Lord, my strength

    He was repentant

    Psalm 25:11

    For the sake of your name. O Lord, forgive my iniquity, though it is great

    It shows the grace and love of God. Anything is forgiven if I repent.

    I am a sinner and there is great comfort in knowing that I have a God who is greater than any sin.

    What I learned was that no matter what problems or how hard life becomes I accept it never doubting that it will be for my good.

    I want to be a woman after God’s own heart.

     

    Acts 13:22

    “I have found David the son of Jesse,

    a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill

    all my will”.
