“God is not looking for perfection; He’s looking for brokenness. He’s looking for people who will humble their hearts before Him and say, ‘God, I am desperate for you.’”
This week kicks off our Tailgate Series in Episode 58 of The Noble Man Podcast. We witnessed numerous collateral blessings in our 2021 Spring Tour of The Noble Man Tailgate, and it was great to see so many of you in person at one or more of our tailgates. If you couldn’t make it in person, or even if you could, you will definitely want to hear this powerful message on the heart of David from Pastor Stan Grant of Cloverhill Church.
David was a man of contradictions. He was a shepherd, king, warrior, composer, and giant-killer. He led armies to victory, but he couldn’t manage his own family. What did God see in David? What did he do to deserve the title, “Man After God’s Own Heart”?
Pastor Stan reminds us that God’s power trumps our weakness. He uses misfits. It’s easy to look at David’s life and see his shortcomings, but God looks at the heart. When confronted with sin, David’s response is quick repentance. He didn’t justify, rationalize, excuse, or deny it. He took responsibility for it.
“When it comes to sin, David had a repentant heart. When it comes to adversity, he had a trusting heart. When it comes to success, he had a humble heart.”
If God did an X-ray of your heart, what would he find?
“God is a talking God, and his sheep hear his voice.”
What is He saying to you? Is there a sin you need to repent of? Are you trusting God in a struggle? Does God see a proud or humble heart?
Pastor Stan will challenge and strengthen you through this message.
