A heart like David

David is known as a man after God own heart. Have you ever thought why that is? In Acts13:22 David is described as a man after God own heart and as a man who would do everything that he was asked to do. It seems that the latter part of the verse is often over looked. David’s worshipful heart is usually sited as the reason he was a man after God heart but this verse in Acts seems to imply that it was his obedience that led him to be known in this way. Similarly Evan Roberts in the Welsh revival noted four keys God had given Him for the revival, one of which was immediate obedience to the Holy Spirit. It delights the heart of God when we can follow his leading immediately and with joy.
