Twice God says that in King David he had found 'a man after my own heart' (1 Samuel 13:14, Acts 13:22). David was one of God's favourites. This was so despite David having sinned so deeply. What is encouraging is that the Lord continued to use David after his time of backsliding.
David was a man with deep feelings. He was a poet and musician as well as being Israel's greatest King and one of the greatest ever military leaders.
David wrote that 'the Lord confides in those who fear him' (Psalm 25:14). It is a great honour to have someone confide in you - but to think that God would confide in a human being is amazing! David was someone with whom God chose to share his heart.
If you wish to know what it is like to be confided in by God - to become a person after God's own heart too - then this book will help you discover what such a relationship is like.
