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?

      David did lose his son that he bore with Bathsheba in adultery ( 2 Samuel 12: 14-31 ). Interesting Hub.

      Best Wishes,

      Hi Quill certainly we do have to pay for our sins but God is still very merciful and forgiving if he punished us for everything we did we wouldn't be alive today, that's why he looks at the intent of the heart, good to see you thanks for your comment

      Hi LadyFiddler,

      Lol! I think I'm living proof of God's Grace - nearly been killed three times - my sister and I saving each other from drowning when kids, nearly getting shipwrecked in a boat, and a shooting - I might tell you about it sometime.

      Have a good weekend,

      R.Q.

      Yes, He does indeed look at the heart. I am glad He is not finished with me yet! David was a man after God's own heart, although he did terrible things, he would repent and sings praises to his Father, for he understood the character of God.

      Excellent! Up and more and sharing. God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      A good poem and supported with lovely images. God really cares for His children - even when we are old.
