GOD is looking at the intent of the HEART
God looks at the intent of the heart of man
for he knows our spirit is willing but
our flesh is weak. Most of us wants to go
right but the good that we want to do
we find ourselves not doing, and the evil
we want to shun that we do. David was
A mighty and valiant man in his army
he killed many. Nevertheless he was one
of the greatest kings ever.
Because of his loving and sorrowful heart,
he was always ready to go before
God and pour out his soul, for the
wrong things he had done. He was human
like us and did err to sin, he fell in adultery
he got angry and did things he shouldn’t.
His intent was what God looked at,
God said David is a man after mine own heart
God don’t watch at our mistakes but he waits
for us to come and say that we are sorry.
He is always ready to forgave us .
Solomon was David’s son and heir to the throne,
he became king soon after his father died
Solomon did well he build a temple for God.
His intent was to do everything that was right
and pleasing to God yet he stumbled along the way.
He had many wives and concubines and he
worshipped idols after knowing the true,
and living God! Solomon wrote the
book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon and Proverbs.
Showing us right from wrong although he went
astray, he knew what was right. He was the wisest of all men.
Samson was a judge and the strongest man
to walk the face of the earth. He love the Lord
yet he falter because of a woman called Delilah
she was his weakness. Samson knew in the end
that he had to call out to God for help, he was
sorry for letting Israel and God down.
So when we sin and come short of the glory
God let us go to him and ask forgiveness. He is waiting with
arms open wide to receive us. Sometimes we so want
to do what’s right but end up doing wrong, then Satan comes
and bash us and make us feel so depress unworthy and undone.
I say forget about Satan he’s a nasty liar and hater. If God who is God
Could tell us forgive our brother 70 x 7 how much more
Will our Heavenly Father forgave us?
