"And when he had removed him, he raised up David to be their king, whom he testified and said, 'I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.'" ESV
The Lord is pleased with those who have a heart like His. He was pleased with David. How could the Lord be pleased with David after he committed adultery, murder, and deceit? He chose David because, like us, he was human and inclined to sin. But, he had a heart for doing good and seeking to do God's will. David recognized his sin, cried out to God, and fully repented. If we do the same, our God will not only forgive us, but will also consider us as people after His own heart.
Heavenly Father, we pray that Your Holy Spirit would reveal to us our sin so that we can cry out to You and repent. We thank You that You will forgive us and consider us Your children--with hearts like Your own. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
