The Good Shepherd

David was a shepherd and had a shepherd’s heart. One day, as he faithfully kept his father’s sheep, a lion came and took a lamb out of the flock. This stirred David’s heart, and he tells us: “I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of... Read more →

God’s Choice

The story of David opens with a dramatic contrast between the fresh hope of David’s young life and the rejection of King Saul, who proved that he was not fit to act as God’s representative. In God’s Word, we read of four phrases about His choice of David as king.... Read more →

Divine Teaching

In 1 Samuel 16 we find David in perfect obscurity, keeping sheep. But he was already chosen by the Lord. In the wilderness, he was under God’s teaching. He was being prepared for public service in the secret school of Him who looks not on the outward appearance, but on... Read more →

The Savior

“So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him” (1 Samuel 17:50). In Jonathan we have the very opposite of his father, Saul. Saul only knew David as his amuser or his helper. But Jonathan knew him as the... Read more →

A Man After God’s Own Heart

“I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after Mine own heart, which shall fulfil all My will” (Acts 13:22). In Jesus, we have no difficulty recognizing the moral excellencies that would entitle Him to be pointed out as “a man after God’s own heart.” But are we... Read more →

Sitting Before the Lord

At the beginning of 1 Chronicles 17 we read that David was sitting in his house, considering certain plans which he intended to carry out. David made known his thoughts to Nathan the prophet, who encouraged David to proceed with his plans. No doubt we have many times sat in... Read more →

The Psalmist

“David … the sweet psalmist of Israel” (2 Samuel 23:1). Among all the saints whose lives are recorded in the Word, David’s experience stands as one of the most striking, varied, and instructive. He knew the trials of all ranks and conditions of men. Kings have their troubles, and David... Read more →

Grace Triumphant

“He restoreth my soul,” says David while recounting the wonderful ways of his Divine Shepherd (Psalm 23:3). David’s failure is a solemn example of the weakness of the human heart, but his restoration is an uplifting reminder of God’s abundant grace. Like David, we are slow to learn that no... Read more →

Just Like David

Reality tells us that no Christian is exempt from the burdens of the sinful nature. Paul told the believers at Colosse to “Mortify [put to death] therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness … [etc.]” (Colossians 3:5). The problem is that sometimes we don’t do that. We... Read more →

He Fell Asleep

“David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep” (Acts 13:36). David occupied a prominent place in the divine counsels. He was the first king after God’s heart; he gave Jerusalem—where God had chosen to place His Name—to Israel; he made the nation... Read more →
