SINCERE MILK: CHILDREN DAILY DEVOTIONAL GUIDE
MONDAY NOVEMBER 25, 2019
TOPIC: A MAN AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART
TEXT: ACTS 13:21-23
KEY VERSE: …I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will” (Acts 13:22b).
Believers always give testimonies of what God did in their lives. They testify of the goodness, mercy and protection of God. It is however a great honour for God to give a testimony about a man. God gave testimonies of Enoch, Moses, David and Job. God testified of David of being a man after His heart.
What were the qualities in David that we need to emulate?
(i) David did not associate himself with anything called an idol like most other kings did.
(ii) David worshipped God with his whole heart. He wrote many Psalms to praise God.
(iii) David was very forgiving, he forgave king Saul who sought to kill him.
(iv) David was humble in heart. He repented wholeheartedly when he sinned against God in taking Uriah’s wife.
If you have these qualities, you will be a child after God’s heart. If you are a sinner, the first step to take is to repent of your sins. Then seek God wholeheartedly. He will accept you.
PRAYER: Oh Lord, make me a child after Your heart.
