THE MESSAGE

DAVID : A MAN AFTER GODíS OWN HEART
**************************************

" ....After removing Saul, he made David their king. He testified concerning him: íI have found David son of Jesse a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do. " Acts 13:22


1.COMMITMENT
I Samuel 17 : 34-36

David was a man of commitment to his responsibilities . When he was a humble shepherd boy taking care of the sheep , a lion and a bear came to kill the sheep. David risked his life to protect the sheep and tore apart the lion and the bear. He was faithful in the little things and God made him a ruler over much. We must learn from David to be faithful in the little responsibilities that God gives to us .Only then the Lord will give us greater responsibilities.

2.CALL
I Samuel 16 :6-13 Psalm 118:22-23

David was called and chosen by God. When Samuel went to the house of Jesse to anoint a king from among his sons , David was not even present there . Even his own father had no hopes for David . But God chose David to be the King over Israel even though his own family had rejected him . The stone which the builders rejected had become the chief cornerstone. We must not be discouraged when we are rejected by men because it is God who has chosen us and He will establish us in the calling He has given to us.

3.COURAGE
I Samuel 17 :45-47 , 23-24

David had courage to face Goliath . Even when all the soldiers fled from Goliath in fear , David was willing to face the challenge . He had great faith in God and a zeal for God . He wanted to bring glory to God by defeating the enemy who was mocking the God of Israel. God honored his courage and faith and delivered the enemy into his hand. We must have faith in God when we face the enemy . The Lord will honour our courage and zeal and grant us the victory.

4.CHASE
I Samuel 23 :14-15

David was chased by Saul who was pursuing David to kill him. David had to face suffering and danger inspite of doing great exploits for his nation. Instead of being honored by the king , he was hounded and had to flee for his life. David did not turn against God for allowing him to go through such trials in his life. He continued to cling to God to help him come out of these trials. We must not murmur against God when we face trials because of the attacks of the enemy against the call of God upon our lives. We must hold onto God until He delivers us from all our afflictions.

5.CONSCIENCE
I Samuel 24 :4-7 ,12

David had a tender conscience
