“A man after God's own heart” can only refer to one person in Scripture: David. The youngest son of Jesse. The shepherd lad of Bethlehem. The giant-killer. The teenaged king-elect. The composer of psalms. Saul’s personal musician. The friend of Jonathan. The hunted fugitive. The king of Israel. The father of Solomon. The champion in battle. The aged, troubled monarch. In verbal panorama, such was God’s choice servant. A man of glorious triumph and great tragedy. Uniquely gifted but human to the core. Strong in battle but weak at home. On and on we could go, but first, focus on God’s working and preparation behind the scenes.
