Our heart governs the affairs of our lives! With each of these kings as they come and go, they are always compared to King David! We all know that David was not perfect! Yet, at each point, God still uses him as an example!
In our society, a flawed man like David could never be an example. Yet, for God, He uses the broken vessels of this world to show His exceeding glory. For all of David’s faults, his heart never changed towards God. (You can see this in Psalm 51). When he was confronted with truth, he did not argue or fight it or make excuses, he yielded to truth.
The heart is our determining factor in everything! Check your heart today to make certain that it has not grown cold towards God. Make certain that your heart is not distorted by unforgiveness, jealousy, strife or anger. Your heart will determine your future!
