Oh Lord, I pray that people will come unto You and also hear Your voice in this lifetime. It may not be an audible voice, but a voice from the inside that helps us know Your will and also abide in it. I love the example of David, where he was a man after God’s own heart. This is seen in the book of Psalm, where every song and prayer is a confession of sin, asking for mercy, giving You praise, giving us guidance in this wicked world, and much more. You gave wisdom unto David throughout his lifetime like unto his son Solomon. He is a great example to all Your saints. We know, God, that we will not be perfect and fall into diverse sins, but the moment we call upon Your Name for mercy, there is forgiveness. You know when our heart is sincere, meaning we have no more desire to do the same thing again. And I am grateful to have Your strength with me, which gives me the power to resist temptation. Surely, my flesh is weak, but You make me strong to resist every form of evil in this wicked world. Men know that women can cause them to fall into adultery because of their beauty. But thank God, for You building us up in Your armor. This way we don’t get feelings like we cannot control the situation. You are my God, Jesus, and to abide in Your presence is all I desire. I love You, Lord. Be always with me. Amen.
Psalm 51:1-4 (KJV)
1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
David is a man after God’s own heart. He is currently in paradise with the rest of the saints. We will rest there also one day.
