A Heart After God

….The Lord has sought for Himself a man after His own heart and appointed him ruler of his people, because you have not. (1 Samuel 13:14)


It is very interesting that no one expected David to be the one chosen by God not even his own father, Jesse. David, was the last and eighth son of Jesse, who tended the sheep in the field. God sent the Prophet Samuel to Jesse’s house to anoint the next King of Judah. Even the prophet Samuel thought that it would be one of the seven brothers that were ahead of David, but God let him know that they were not the one.

Jesse was asked by the prophet if he had another son. You notice that Jesse, didn’t even call in David, to see the prophet because he believed that he couldn’t possibly be the one chosen by God. Jesse described his own child, David as the runt. A runt is someone who is smaller or at a disadvantage because of their size. David may have been small but he had a big heart for GOD. ¬†Soon as the prophet saw David, God gave him the word to anoint David as the future King of Judah.

Maybe you can identify with David and being called the runt of the family. But you must understand that even if your family does not believe in you that GOD know the plans that He has for you (Jeremiah 29:11). You might not be working at the high-end job or doing the amazing things your siblings are doing but know that GOD is working everything out for your good (Romans 8:28). Be content where you are because that is training ground for your future assignment.

Your appointed time or set time is in the hand’s of GOD. God knows the exact date, time, month, and year that you will be catapulted in your divine destiny. In the meantime, you must keep your heart posture before GOD in prayer, praise, worship, the word, and fasting. There are so many distractions in this world so keep your mind not on earthly things but on God.

The greatest weapon that you have is intimacy with GOD, the Father! It is in this divine secret place that God will reveal to you, His heart. You will call unto Him, and He will answer you, and show you great and mighty things you do not know (Jeremiah 33:3). The Father desires relationship with His children and the more you grow closer to Him the more He will reveal Himself to you.

In this hour God is looking for those who have a heart after Him and not the things of this world. The things of this world which we see are temporary but God is Eternal who we can not see (2 Corinthians 4:18). God is raising up a pure and holy army that have a heart where light dwells. If you are in a season of being hidden then God is still circumcising your heart. God is saying TRUST THE PROCESS. Your time is near!
