David was a man after God’s own heart. David, without a doubt, could see into God’s heart agenda, heart longing, heart persuasion, heart rhythm as well as heart ache and pain. This was why he was able to function from a different standpoint as he saw and acted from the perspective of God.
Sadly, some believers do not care about the pulse of God’s heart but only about the purse in God’s hands. If God were to describe your relationship with Him, what will He say about you? God said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart who shall fulfill all my will (Acts 13:22).
Are you a man or woman who is after the will God carries in His heart OR a man or woman who is after the wealth God carries in His hands? The modern day Christian who strives for survival would rather seek the hands of God and not His heart forgetting that to win His heart is to win His hand.
God often raises people from low estates and sets them on thrones as kings. Kingship is reserved for God’s heart-seekers, and David remains the greatest king of the nation of Israel, which was why Jesus Christ was enlisted in the lineage and heritage of David.
David was a loving worshiper who sought and found God’s heart to the point that their two hearts fused and functioned as one. Most passionate lovers who are in marriage union would not only spend time together, but would frequently share secrets. This was why David knew many secrets of God.
Virtually every house owner would be motivated to release house keys to an intimate friend except to a stranger. David had keys to the house of God (Isaiah 22:22). David was a God-addict! However, what kind of house was David talking about each time he mentioned the house of God in his psalms?
He stated that the zeal of the house of God has consumed him… (Ps 69:9); I was glad when they said to me let us go into the house of God (Ps 122:1); Goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever (Ps 23:6).
Obviously, the temple of God had not been built during the reign of King David. As a matter of fact, it was King Solomon who eventually built the temple, though the architectural design and building materials were all laid out and supplied by David before he marked his exit from the earth.
In effect David had the key (access) to God’s throne room – that was the true House of God. It was the heavenly Mount Zion, for God does not dwell in houses made with hands (Acts 2:48). The plan in God’s heart is that His will, as it is patterned in heaven, be replicated on the earth by His faithfuls.
God desires to reveal His house address and divine access to His heart seekers. And you shall seek me and find me WHEN you shall search for me with all your heart (Jer 29:13). Though often castigated and ridiculed by his brethren, David became the anointed of God because he did not lose sight of the things that matter to God. When you seek His heart by spending your time, talents and treasure for the cause of His Kingdom, He will anoint, decorate and coronate you in due season.
