Good Monday Morning Coffee everyone ☺️! Welcome to a new day, a new week, and a new encouraging conversation with me, Kenya! I hope everyone is doing amazing! Here in Georgia its been a little rainy but its still an amazing, beautiful day! So now if you are ready to get into today’s conversation, then grab that yummy drink ☕️ and let’s get started!
So, for today’s conversation we will be discussing part 4 of the “Do’s and Don’ts series”. Last week we discuss an Audience of One type person (King David) versus a People Pleaser type person (King Saul). Last week’s conversation main point was depending on who’s attention you are after will determine your decisions. Now let’s get into part four: “A Repented Heart”.
The scriptures that we will be looking at are the following:
Psalm 51:4, “Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment”.
1 Samuel 15:30, “Saul replied, “I have sinned. But please honor me before the elders of my people and before Israel; come back with me, so that I may worship the Lord your God.”
These two scripture are very clear. One was focus on the heart of God while the other was focus on self, his own appearance. Yes, Saul said I have sinned but in the same breath still was concern about being honored in front of others. David understood that his sin was a terrible offense to God. Saul was only concerned about honoring self while David was concerned with how he did not honor God. Psalm 51 is David’s heart cry to God to forgive him for the sin that he committed with Bathsheba. He understood that his problem was not with man but with his relationship with God. God was his ultimate concern and he did not want to be disconnected from God. This is the type of heart that God is looking for.
In my own personal life, I remember pleading to God to forgive me, God presence is like no other and the Holy Spirit is an amazing gift. I remember feeling like God was not with me anymore and that was the most devastating and depressing feeling that I ever felt. I felt alone even with people were all around me but that experience helped me to cherish His restored presence to me and God Himself. God wants us to really honor Him above all, including yourself. In those moments when you fall and then you are made aware of your sin how do you respond? Remember God loves you so much and just like a marriage we want to honor that relationship. God’s Love is precious and He loves you far above anyone else could ever love you. Remember to protect your connection with God!
So to conclude, thank you for joining me in the Do’s and Don’ts series. I hope you enjoyed it. Actually I wanted to do this series for a very long time and I am so happy to have done it. So from our series we can see a clear description of a person who truly loved, reverenced, and trusted God. With the heart and mindset that David displayed, he was like no other King. I believe integrity and standing on what you believe is key to becoming the best version of yourself. David, although he made some mistakes, he was amazing person and a great example that we can learn so much from.
Side Note: God looks at the heart not just the words that you confess!
