THE HEART OF A KING 2 Sam. 22 :2,3

It is in my heart to use CWA as a tool for study more than semi-yearly or monthly as I first set it up. I’m sharing this with you to give you a heads up that you will be getting studies at random times. The end goal is to be encouraged through His Word that we can be “a man after His own heart” and the “light” of the world.

In the recent months the Lord has encouraged me and told me my intercession must be for generations. Not just in my own family or friends or our church but He has given us a burden, direction and a message for generations. Both young and old! He wants to use us TODAY!

We have spent time studying about light and darkness. For those of you who didn’t read previous CWA blogs it is available on the web site.

Let’s see what we can find as we look at the scripture in 2 Sam. 2 that will give us a look at the heart of David.

Then David spoke to the LORD the words of this song, on the day when the LORD had delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul.

There are several insights we can take from this verse. Ask yourself,
1. To whom was David speaking the words of this song?

2. When did it take place?

What can we learn from this that would have anything to do with “light”?

And he said:

“The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
The God of my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation,
My stronghold and my refuge;
My Savior, You save me from violence.

What do these words reveal to you about both David’s heart attitude and our own true heart attitude? (Please spend some introspective time thinking about this! I was awake several hours one night considering these two verses as the Holy Spirit spoke to my spirit as I was searching for more meaning in these scriptures.)

A lot is made about reading through the whole Bible in a year, which I think is awesome, but I learned to search for hidden truths in what I was reading. As a young Christian my Mother-in-law taught me and imparted a keen desire to research, This enlarged my natural desire to know it all. She was the greatest Bible Teacher and never missed a good opening to create a desire to dig deeper during our private conversations.

Please spend a few hours looking at and thinking about these scriptures and share your heart with us. Remember our goal is the end result of being “light”!

A LESSON FROM KING DAVID

We spent many months even years searching for a comparatively “hidden” nugget from the Word.
(Because I have an insatiable desire to know why on many levels) I am excited about where we might go from here and am thrilled that our study led us to light and anything I could dig out about that subject.

Now, let’s go a little further in revealing light. We are not all going to walk around looking like LED lights. That I can tell you. But, there are many characteristics that will cause us to both be and experience light.

I am going to begin today with King David. He has long been one of my favorites because he seemed so real and revealed a lot of his humanity in his writings. Besides that he is the “epitome” of a powerful Minstrel of the Lord. I have been in services where I was aware I was hearing one of His great Minstrel gifts to the church. The effects of that on my spirit as I heard the voice of the Lord was phenomenal and frankly left me like a wet noodle.

Turn to 2 Samuel 22:2-3 and read the words David sang to the Lord.Let’s start with this today. He gives praise and honor to the Lord for who He is in his life. I know David was far from perfect but he was truly “a man after God’s own heart” That gives me such joy and confidence that His love is deep enough to overlook my inadequacies. He acknowledges the Lord as his Rock,my fortress and my deliverer,my rock in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, He is my stronghold,my God is my rock, my refuge and my Savior from violent men you save me. This is his personal attitude of worship and praise and he reminds himself and all that hear about what the Lord has done for him and rehearses what the Lord’s response was to his cry for help.

Oh Hallelujah – what a response. Read the entire chapter if you will for context and go back to 11 thru 16. What a mighty God we serve!….now those of you who want can put a comment here and if you are in my Facebook CWA group please continue the conversation there. If you want to be in that group send me an IM and I will put you in there.

Blessings!
