READ II Samuel 7:18-29

The devotional life of David, a man after God’s own heart, is described in Psalm 5:3, “My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up.”

David’s devotional life was characterized by communing with God, asking requests of God, and waiting in expectation on God.  In today’s passage you read an account of one of David’s quiet times. 

  • He sat before the Lord (v.18)
  • Acknowledged God’s past provision and blessings (v. 18 – 21)
  • Reflected on God’s nature and who He is (v. 22 – 24)
  • Remembered the promises of God (v. 25 – 28)
  • He made request of God (v. 29)

The purpose of the personal devotional life is to meet God; to experience God; to worship God; to commune with God.  It is a time of personal fellowship with God.  It is when God speaks to me about Himself, His will, and His working in my life.  It is a time of giving my life, family, and concerns to God on a daily basis. 

With all the pressures of work, home, ministry, etc., personal meetings with God are often neglected.  Be INTENTIONAL and set aside time and a place to meet with God each and every day.

PRAY:
O Lord, I desire to be a man after Your heart.  Give me the time and help I need to develop a personal devotional life.  May I hear from You today!
