King David was a prophet, warrior, and poet. A man after God’s own heart. I admire David’s heart to please Jehovah during great victories, but also in defeat. We must be able to praise during the times when we are against the ropes and tears are streaming down our faces. When natural weapons can’t get you out, David found the weapon of praise to get him out. When Satan is throwing everything at you including the kitchen sink, King David, said, “I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth! That is my warrior’s cry! David also knew when he was wrong and didn’t try to hide it. When he had a fellow soldier killed and was eventually confronted with it, He confessed his sin and faced the consequences. When we sin against God, confess it quickly and turn from it. (2 Samuel 12:13) And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die. When we continue in sin, we die because sin separates us from God. It doesn’t separate us from His love, but it does separate us from His presence. I want to always be in His presence. In His presence is the fullness of joy! David loved Jehovah and we can follow his example by loving God with a passion.
Love you men,
