Can you believe it? He was an adulterer and a murderer. But still God calls him “a man after his own heart” (Acts 13:22). What did God see in David?
Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man! Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul… Why have you despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in His sight?… So David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.” (2 Samuel 7,9a,13a)
David accepted his sin. He admitted his fault. He never tried to cover it up. David’s biggest quality was his sincerity.
David was sincere. He sought God. He knew God was real. David was an open page in the eyes of God. He did not try and hide it.
When we worship God, He expects us to be sincere too. What can you hide from God? It would be foolishness to think God doesn’t bother or He doesn’t know. He does bother and He does know.
If you sin, confess it. Have an issue, tell Him. Worries? Tell Him. Anything…put it across to Him. Jesus said “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt 18:3)
Children have the unique quality to be pure and simple. They can never be untrue. That’s how we must go to God.
Now we may think, I can’t just become like a child all of a sudden! I will take time and prepare myself. Never do that. Go the way you are. Tell Him you need help. Tell Him your need to be sincere. Trust Him to change you.
Enjoy your worship with Him today!
