KEY SCRIPTURE: Acts 13:22 KJV “And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will”.
Man has always been God’s means of fulfilling His purposes on the earth. All He needs from men is to yield their whole being to Him, and He would do mighty works with them. As He found David, God searches for a man with a right heart to use. 2 Chronicles 16:9 KJV” For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him……” Would you have the right heart towards Him. In these last days, Satan has vomited every kind of unclean thing, raising evil men to say and do very abominable things. God needs men and women who would likewise stand totally for Him, to reveal His power, love and Glory through them. God would not do anything on the earth without the agency of a man.
In the light of this, God always seeks for a man who will serve His purposes on the earth. When king Saul rebelled against God, He had to find a substitute for Saul who would lead His people the Israelites. He said I have found David, the Son of Jesse, a man after my heart. He added, who shall fulfill all my will. When the heart of men was filled with sin continually God found Noah who did his will, to preserve a people who did not defile themselves with the wickedness and evil ways of the human generation in that era.
God found Abram who later became Abraham. He believed God enough to leave, his country, kindred and his father’s house. Through Abraham God raised a new nation, and the world was saved by his seed. (Gal 3:16) The need for God’s ways and acts to be revealed is in more demand in our time than ever. Would God find in you a man after his heart? Would he find a friend in you? God wants a man who will do his will. The number of Christians in our generation are more than it has ever existed in any generation, yet there are only a few men God is using to impact men in a very mighty way. God wants to have multitudes doing his works in a bigger way. (John 14:12)
I thank you Lord Jesus for giving your life to save me. I offer my body to you. Find in me a man who is ready to do what you say, and go where you ask me. Use me for your glory.
