When God Forgave David…
So…I have been wanting to return to the story of God’s forgiveness of the King who was a man after God’s own heart. I really want to hear from you all. If you read this, but have never commented…please take the time…if you can…to do so this time. But, I promise not to be upset if you don’t. I’m just glad you came by… and do so…from time to time.
But think about this with me…then give me your insights…or ask your question (maybe someone who reads this can help us)…Tell me how a man like David…with such a heart for God permeating his whole life up until the Bathsheba sin and consequent, murderous, cover-up (I understand these were not David’s first sins, but still…)…a man who had sung prayer songs asking God to please not let those who hope in God be disgraced because of him (Psalm 69:6), proceeded in life to do just that…a man who had carried the banner of faith and obedience to God to new heights and amazing, inspiring feats of courage…(and you may go on to add many, many other wonderful truths about the faith, courage, integrity, loyalty, obedience, self-sacrificing deeds of the man)…tell me how…HOW…HOW!…how does this man…who sank to such terrible depths after his horrible and harmful evils…tell me how does he start over? What?! How does he return to the throne…rule the nation…make judgements…lead in worship…entertain dignitaries…walk through the streets of his city…pray…sing…write another song…will you tell me how you think he found the way to take even one more step after all this?
I love you…and I will be listening as you help all of us sinners…by your honest sharing of Word and thought with us. God bless you today. And may we all be encouraged to accept His daily grace.
