Joseph Prince sermon The Secret Of David A Man After God’s Own Heart : Joseph Prince The Secret Of David A Man After God’s Own Heart: David was a man so dear to God, he is described in the bible as a man after Gods heart, a lot of people say this was because he was quick to repent but this phrase is not in the bible, Acts 13:22 says, And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave their testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.
the apostle Paul in Antioch turkey, preached that, when God said he had found a man after his own heart, David was not yet a king, he was still young, when he repented of his deeds with Bathsheba, he was already grown and a king. so what was it about David? we must know that as believer, we are all very highly favoured in the presence of God, but aside being well favoured, we can be well pleasing in the eyes of God, God wants everything we do to be well pleasing to him.
David said in 1 chronicles 28:4 Howbeit the Lord God of Israel chose me before all the house of my father to be king over Israel for ever: for he hath chosen Judah to be the ruler; and of the house of Judah, the house of my father; and among the sons of my father he liked me to make me king over all Israel.
