A Heart for God Make time for God and trust Him through your fears and failures. April 14, 2023

Acts 13:16-22

Acts 13:22 tells us God’s description of David: “a man after My heart, who will do all My will.” Now that is high praise from the Creator and Ruler of the universe. But this commendation is not reserved exclusively for the king of Israel. Our Father wants to describe every one of His children this way.

A key characteristic of being a person after God’s heart is to “do all [His] will.” Not every act of David’s life was in obedience to the Lord, but his pattern was to seek God. When David sinned, he prayed that the Lord would search out any wicked way in him and get him back on track to become the kind of person God intended (Psalm 139:23-24).

David also delighted in God’s Word and spent quality time with Him. Many of his intimate conversations with the Father are preserved for us in the book of Psalms, and they reveal how David trusted the Lord time and again in the challenges of his life.

We don’t have to be perfect to become a man or woman with a heart for God. Instead, our aim should be simply spending time with our Father and developing a habit of repentance.
