#tacticaltuesday - King David is a person in the Bible that’s often seen as a mighty warrior who, through God’s strength, slew Goliath and led the Israelites in numerous victories over the Philistines. David was far from perfect. It seems odd that an adulterer and murderer would be described as a man after God’s own heart. Despite his failings, David recognized his need for God in his life. David was also a skilled musician. A lot of the psalms in the Bible were worship songs that David wrote to God. When we look beyond the warrior and battlefield tactics, we see that deep rooted in David’s heart is his love for God. We see a sinful man who recognizes his need for a Savior. Being a warrior may seem macho and manly, but David stood tallest when he was on his knees before God. Every single one of us is in need of a Savior. The sooner we realize that, the sooner we can receive Jesus’ gift of salvation and experience true love, real joy, and ultimate freedom. If you have already received Jesus’ gift of salvation, are you worshiping Him with all your heart? When we look at David’s failures, we see that he had put other things above God. Keep God first!
“Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty expanse. Praise Him for His mighty deeds; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness. Praise Him with trumpet sound; Praise Him with harp and lyre. Praise Him with timbrel and dancing; Praise Him with stringed instruments and pipe. Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!” -Psalm 150 (although this may not be a psalm of David, it’s a good one nonetheless)
