THE TRAJECTORY OF THE WILL OF GOD

Discover How to Start and End with God in His Will for your Life


Listen To Podcast: The Trajectory of God's Will

Last week we looked at the year of God’s will (The Year of the Will of God), where the Holy Spirit exposed to us what the will of God meant, how to position ourselves to serve the will of God in this new year, and what should be our heart cry concerning the will of God this year. And we also looked at as the icing on the cake, the expectation we should have as regarding the will of God this year. And in this article, the Holy Spirit will be teaching us further, and we will be looking at The Trajectory of God’s Will. When we talk about trajectory, it seems it looks like a very big vocabulary. Trajectory talks about a path or a progression.

 

If you, for example, have something you want to throw, that item or object that you want to throw is going go through a trajectory before it lands at the point of destination. Meaning that trajectory is a word that is common with an object or someone on a journey. Because, it talks about the progression or the path from the point of origin of that item to the point of destination. So, what we are looking at by the help of the Holy Spirit, is that path, it’s that progression that is important for every human being on the face of the earth to go through at arriving at God’s will. What is our destination? It is that the will of God will be done in our lives, and the will of God be done on the earth as it is in heaven. So, that is the destination.

 

So, we want to look at you and I, the earth as a whole; how do we begin? What is the path that is required? We understood last week that the will of God is God’s requirement concerning us, and God’s requirement is what God says you must do; that is God’s will. That which God says you must do, that requirement of God is a destination. So, what is the path? What kind of progression does your life need to get to that destination? That’s what the Holy Spirit will be allowing us to see in this article. Another word that describes trajectory is a line of development. So, when a product is being formed, you will say the product is going through developmental process. Meaning that it is growing from one form to another.

 

The product is being transformed or changed from one form to another. So, it’s a line of development. That’s another word that describes trajectory. So, we also want to look at the line of development that happens in the life of a man that makes Him arrive at the destination called God’s will. So, we are going to be examining four important points. If we look at how a normal trajectory should look like; for example, if you have a stone and you throw it, it depends on how you throw it. Now, if you throw that stone in such a way that it starts from the beginning of this hall and ends at the back, that means you must give it a good push. That particular stone or object as the case may be, would have to travel a distance to get there.

 

So, for it to successfully get to the point you want it to get, there is a how to throw. That how is the path that you have premeditated that that object would go through to arrive at the destination. God’s will for us, God is not a man, God does not have you in His hands, then He is now thinking of how to throw you, God already has in His plan before you were born, how your trajectory will look like. God was speaking to Jeremiah, He said before you were formed in the womb of your mother, I knew you and ordained you a prophet to the nations. Meaning that the end of Jeremiah was already known by God. So, Jeremiah was going to start with God then he will have to follow the trajectory of God to arrive at the destination called God’s will for His life.

 

So, we are going to start at the starting point. But before we go there, I want us to read Psalm 53:2, we want to form a background of what the heart cry or the passion of God is concerning His will. Psalm 53:2 says: “God looks down from heaven upon the children of men.” This is forming a background for us so that we will understand how God sees His will. “God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand.” Meaning that understanding is a prerequisite. The Bible says God is looking down from heaven upon the children of men. He is not looking for those that have knowledge. He said He is looking to see if there are any who understand, who seek God. God is looking down from heaven, looking at the children of men to see; is there anyone that understands why? Is there anyone that understands that this life is not just for fun but for function? Is there any that understands that this life is not just a gimmick, it is a gift?

 

Remember God is looking at every body. Do you know how large the population of the earth is? Some people are even tactically planning to eliminate some people so that they can reduce the population. That is to tell you the children of men upon the face of the earth are vast in number and God from heaven is looking down on the children of men and His attention will be drawn to that man, to that woman who understands. Because it is your understanding that will make you seek Him. If you don’t understand, you can’t seek Him. And that’s why in verse 1, the Bible says the fool has said in His heart there is no God, he doesn’t understand. “They are corrupt and have done abominable iniquity, there is none who does good.”

 

Do we remember the definition of the will of God last week? Doing good. Bible says there is none who does good. Meaning there is none that is doing His will. No wonder the men that understands, that God is looking for are scarce. Don’t think they are all over the earth. And that’s why this year God is calling our attention particularly to understanding His will and doing it. We cannot over flog it because it is in the heart of God that man understands. That this life I have given to you is for my pleasure, it is for doing good, it is for doing the requirement that I have on the earth.

 

So, haven understood this, that God is looking for a man that will understand. The Holy Spirit wants to bring us the point of understanding where we understand what the trajectory looks life, so that we know how to seek the Lord. So that we understand what the paths look like and will know how to seek the Lord. So, we will be looking at four points in the trajectory of Gods will. The first point we will be looking at is the starting point.

 

The Starting Point

I will be using two characters in the Bible as our case study; king Saul and king David. So, what is the starting point? The starting point in the trajectory is where you are. So, we can ask ourselves, where am I? The starting point is who you are. Those two questions define the starting point in the trajectory. Who is it that God wants to send? Where is the person that God wants to send? Who is that God wants to use? Where is the person that God wants to use? ‘Where you are and who you are’. Let us go to Acts 13 Verse 22. We are looking at the life of David. “And when He had removed him-that is Saul- He raised up for them David.”

 

‘He raised up’; I want us to be conscious of that word. The Bible didn’t say He picked David, it did not say He selected David, Bible says; He raised up. What is the meaning of ‘He raised up?’ We usually say raise up your child, what does it mean? Develop your child, train up your child. So, the Bible did not say God selected David, David didn’t just drop on them. Bible says and God raised up David. God developed David. So, David went through a line of development. David went through the trajectory of God. He raised up for them David as king. To whom also He gave testimony and said; now listen to the testimony of God; I have found David, where did God find him? Where He was, being who he was.

 

I want us to follow the Holy Spirit because what God is about to expose to us that will help us to seek Him. It says; I have found David the son of Jesse that is who he was. David of Jesse a man after my own heart. Did you see the concluding part of that verse? Who will do all my will? The Bible says and God raised up for them David. That looks like God just found David and anointing him and said he will become a king and he became a king. Is that what truly happened? No! God raised him. But God started with David from the starting point. Who he was and where he was. 

 

I want us to see 1 Samuel chapter 16 verse 7, we will read only that part I am going to paraphrase the rest because it’s a lot of verses. But the Lord said to Samuel, this was when the Lord has said to Samuel, I have rejected Saul and I have found for myself a son among the sons of Jesse, go and anoint him. When Samuel got there, he saw the elder brother of David, Eliab and He looked at the stature because there was somewhere Samuel and God were coming from. It was called a man saw. Many of us will think the stature of Saul was the starting point but it was not because we are going to see it. But see the starting point where God was focusing on. This is where God found David. It said; do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him.

 

What was God talking about? Is it that I have refused him on the earth? Is it that I have refused him from having children and wife? Is it that I have refused him from walking around? No! I have refused him from doing my will. Meaning that God can refuse men. Because sometimes we feel God is trapped, don’t think God is stuck with you alone, there is something He found in you. If He has refused you His word will not come to you. God is not stuck with any man, God was not stuck with Saul, He replaced him. We must understand the trajectory of God’s will. God said I have refused him from doing my will, I have refused him from carrying out my will. My word will not appear to him, my word will not come to him. The thing about God’s will is that God’s will is equal to His word.

 

When the word of God appears to a man, His will has appeared to that man. And God Himself is bound by His own word. So, when the will of God appears to a man, it is the commitment of God to that man. So, that is why God is always jealous over His word. When God sends His word, don’t think you are the only one on the face of the earth that qualifies for it. God appeared to you in His mercy. So, you don’t take it for granted. God said I have refused Him. For the Lord does not see as man sees. I want us to ponder on that statement. For God does not see as man sees. There are times that man will judge that this should be the perfect person for this job, there are times when men will judge and say wow this woman should be the one. And God said I have refused her; I have refused him. Because, I don’t see the way man sees. For man looks at the outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart.

 

Your starting point with God in the trajectory of His will is who you are in your heart and not your outward appearance. That’s your starting point, that’s where David started from. I have found David a man after my heart. So, the starting point is where you are.  There is something about your heart, there is something about your heart that God has found. God did not say I have raised David He said I have found. So, at the starting point God finds. So, when He is looking at the face of the earth and He is looking at the children of men, He is finding something. He is finding not an outward appearance; He is finding a heart. So, when God is looking at you, He is not looking at your completion whether you are white or black, He is not looking at whether you are Caucasian or negro, God is not looking at whether you are in the Buckingham palace or in the ghetto, what God is looking at is your heart. He wants to find a heart. So, your starting point is your heart. And I am going to describe what that heart is, because this starting point is so important, it’s so vital.

 

Before I do so I want us to see 1 Samuel chapter 9, so that we will understand the heart of Saul. God did not pick Saul because He was tall dark and handsome. There is something God found. 1 Samuel 9 verse 5 to 10. It’s a long read but it will expose us to the heart of Saul. 1 Samuel 9, we will read verse 2, then we will read verse 5 to verse 10.

 

And he had a choice and handsome son whose name was Saul. There was not a more handsome person than he among the children of Israel. From his shoulders upward he was taller than any of the people.”

 

That’s the end of that beautiful rendition. Now let’s go to verse 5:

 

When they had come to the land of Zuph, Saul said to his servant who was with him, “Come, let us return, lest my father cease caring about the donkeys and become worried about us.” 6 And he said to him, “Look now, there is in this city a man of God, and he is an honorable man; all that he says surely comes to pass. So let us go there; perhaps he can show us the way that we should go.” 7 Then Saul said to his servant, “But look, if we go, what shall we bring the man?”

 

Look at the heart of Saul:

 

What shall we bring the man? For the bread in our vessels is all gone, and there is no present to bring to the man of God. What do we have?” And the servant answered Saul again and said, “Look, I have here at hand one-fourth of a shekel of silver. I will give that to the man of God, to tell us our way.” 9 (Formerly in Israel, when a man went to inquire of God, he spoke thus: “Come, let us go to the seer”; for he who is now called a prophet was formerly called a seer.) 10 Then Saul said to his servant, “Well said; come, let us go.” So, they went to the city where the man of God was.

 

Verse 7 exposed us to the heart of Saul. Saul was a man that honored the men of God. He honored God and His people, He didn’t know God personally but when it comes to somebody representing God, Saul had honor in his heart. That was his starting point. Because if he was not a man that honored the instructions and the people of God, He would not have been anointed by Samuel and Samuel will just say to him go and you will meet some people prophesying company with them, take this and give to them. And he followed all that instruction in honor. That was Saul and that was the man God found.

 

Before we think that all that qualified Saul for the throne was his stature, no! He had a heart of honor. That was his starting point. But does the starting point equate to the destination? Is the starting point equal to where God is taking you to? Is it about the starting? No! many people start well and don’t end well. Many people start right and end wrong, many people start in the spirit and end in the flesh. So, it’s not about the starting point. Who you are right now is fantastic, where you are right now is fantastic but you can’t stay there. For you to hit the destination, for you to hit the point where God is taking you to, you must transit. Yesterday we were taught in the evening Bible school; we must be refined. We must go through the process; we must submit to the process. So, we are looking at the next point.

 

The Accelerating Point

The starting point is good, the starting point is where God finds you as who you are, at where you are. But you can’t do God’s will by staying at the starting point. You must move, you must progress. And where do you progress to? You progress to the accelerating point. I also call it the anointing point. So, as fantastic as David was, He needed something. As beautiful as the heart of David was, he needed something. That was not the heart that will get the job done. Just that heart cannot get the job done. Doing the will of God is beyond having a good heart. Doing the will of God is beyond having the heart that honors men of God, or honor the things of God, it goes beyond there. So, what happened? Let’s go to 1 Samuel 16 verse 13. Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him [this is talking about David] in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. So, Samuel arose and went to Ramah.”

 

David transited from that boy that God found with the good heart to become the vessel, the man that carried His anointing. To do the will of God, we must go through this path. You can’t continue to stay where you are, being who you are, you need to be anointed for the assignment, for the destination. There is nothing that you will do for God that does not require the deployment of His Spirit. Isaiah 61 verse 1, the Bible says concerning Jesus, as a prophecy and what He says to one He says to all. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to; you must accelerate to the point of the anointing, it’s called the point of acceleration where you are accelerated by God, your destiny is facilitated by God. The Bible says it’s not by power, it’s not by might but by my Spirit says the Lord of host. The will of God is not by power, it cannot be done by might, it’s by the deployment of my Spirit. The activation of what I have put and wired inside you by my Spirit. In comparison let us look at Saul, he got to this acceleration point. 1 Samuel 10 verse 1 to 2.

 

Then Samuel took a flask of oil and poured it on his head, and kissed him and said: “Is it not because the Lord has anointed you commander over His inheritance? That is the destiny of Saul. 2 When you have departed from me today, you will find two men by Rachel’s tomb in the territory of Benjamin at Zelzah; and they will say to you, ‘The donkeys which you went to look for have been found. And now your father has ceased caring about the donkeys and is worrying about you, saying, “What shall I do about my son?”

 

Now, Saul was anointed, Saul was accelerated, he got to the acceleration point. It said has not the Lord anointed you as commander of His inheritance. That’s the destiny, the will of God concerning Saul. Before we think that God just hated Saul. The word of God appeared to Samuel. Remember Samuel was a prophet that the Bible says none of the words that came out of his mouth fell to the ground. So, God was not joking when He used the lips of Samuel to proclaim concerning Saul.

 

At this time God was not looking for the replacement of Saul, Saul was the man on the mission. So, Saul got to this accelerating point. Then we to the next point and this accelerating point is the point required. You can’t jump this phase; you can’t skip it. After God has found you where you are, you must be anointed for the work, you must be anointed for the assignment. This is the trajectory of Gods will. The next point which is the third one is the defining point.

 

Defining Point

The defining point is the point where you are deployed for what you have received. What have you received? You have received the anointing for a task. Now you are deployed for that task. You now enter your defining point. People move into these different points differently as they yield to God. So, there is no point that is automatic for anyone, it is according to your obedience and your yieldedness. Imagine if Saul had said which man of God? We are talking about donkey you are talking seer, please let’s go and look for the donkey. He would have missed out; he won’t have reached his accelerating point.

 

That’s how some people when God wants to move them to their accelerating point, they will chicken out. What is the defining point? Another example that the Holy Spirit laid in my heart that I want to also use, so that I will not just use David and Saul, was Apostle Paul. Apostle Paul was a man that started with God, where did he start from? He started as a man that was zealous. That’s why when Apostle Paul was writing to Israel, he said I perceive; because I have been there. That the people of God, the Jews have a zeal for God but without knowledge. Because I have been there. So, where did God find him and how did God find him? God found him with a heart that had zeal. When God was looking down on the face of the earth, God found Saul before his name was changed to Paul with a heart that has zeal.

 

It was on his zealous journey that Jesus intercepted him. It was on that zealous journey when Jesus intercepted him. And he moved from his starting point to his accelerating point. And his accelerating point took some time. God started by using Ananias, He recalled and said I did not confer with flesh and blood. If it’s not flesh and blood, then it’s what? Spirits. So, he got into his accelerating point. Then moved into his defining point. So, what is our defining point? It’s the point where you are deployed for what you have received. And the brethren were praying together and the Holy Spirit said; separate unto me Paul and Barnabas for the work, for the assignment for which I have called them. No person mighty and great in the hands of God skips the trajectory of Gods will.

 

So, what is the defining point? This point is so important, this point is the point we have been dealing with in our two previous Bible school engagements. Talking about towards becoming a man of your destiny. And we were led through the defining point so I am not going to sweat a lot. If you miss the message please go back its online, go to our website centrendl.org and listen to those evening Bible school messages yesterday and last week Saturday, it will bless you. so I am just going to gloss over that point because of those of us that were not there.  How you deploy what you receive is the defining point. It is the point of your trials, test and temptations. It is the point where God needs to prove your heart whether you are the kind of man or the kind of woman that He can establish.  How do we come to that defining point? I want us to use our case study, 1 Samuel 13 verse 7 to 14. We are using the case study of Saul.

 

“And some of the Hebrews crossed over the Jordan to the land of Gad and Gilead. As for Saul, he was still in Gilgal, and all the people followed him trembling. 8 Then he waited seven days, according to the time set by Samuel. But Samuel did not come to Gilgal; and the people were scattered from him. 9 So Saul said, “Bring a burnt offering and peace offerings here to me.” And he offered the burnt offering. 10 Now it happened, as soon as he had finished presenting the burnt offering, that Samuel came; and Saul went out to meet him, that he might [d]greet him. 11 And Samuel said, “What have you done?”

 

What have you done? How can a man fail like this? How can a man disappoint God like this? How can a man come to disapproval like this? What have you done? Saul said, “When I saw that the people were scattered from me, and that you did not come within the days appointed, and that the Philistines gathered together at Michmash, 12 then I said, ‘The Philistines will now come down on me at Gilgal, and I have not made supplication to the Lord.’ Therefore, I felt compelled, and offered a burnt offering.”

 

See how Saul entered disapproval. And if you think this is just it, And Samuel said to Saul, “You have done foolishly.” Last week we looked at how to posture, it said we should not be fools but wise, understanding what the will of God is so that we can do it. “You have not kept the commandment of the Lord your God, which He commanded you. For now, the Lord would have established your kingdom.”  You would have transited if you had passed this defining point you would have moved; you would have made progress in your destiny.  “You would have really been the commander of Gods inheritance. But now your kingdom shall not continue, the Lord has sought for himself a man after His own heart. And the Lord has commanded him to be commander over His people, because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you.”

 

Is it not the same will of God? But now it has gone to another person. That’s why I said God cannot be stuck. The same will another person. Meaning Saul had become an abandoned vessel, He had become an abandoned man of God in that will. It says because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you. Then Samuel arose and went up from Gilgal to Gibeah of [e]Benjamin. And Saul numbered the people present with him, about six hundred men.”

 

Did Saul repent? Did he ask for mercy? No! when we understand the trajectory of Gods will, we will know how to seek Him. Remember that this same David a man after Gods heart offended God we know the story very well. When he slept with Beersheba, impregnated her and went to bring Uriah to do cover up, God said the cover up will not be possible, make sure that Uriah did not go and sleep with his wife, after all he said now let’s eliminate this guy and he sent Uriah to the hottest place of the battle, killed him there because in the heart of David he felt I will not kill him with my hands let me just send him, if he would survive but I don’t think he will survive.

 

When God sent Nathan to David, he said you took his wife and killed him. That’s what God said, you killed him. But what did David do that Saul did not do? He understood how to seek God. You cannot be a man or a woman that serves the will of God in your generation if you don’t understand how to seek God. That’s why we read that Psalms 53 verse 2. God is looking down; He is not looking for a perfect man. no one is perfect but God. But God is looking for a man that understand and knows how to seek Him. David knew how to seek God. And this is what will make us pass our defining point. Yesterday we were taught about the fear of the Lord, that’s why I said that message captures the defining point. You cannot be approved by God, continue on the will of God for your life unless you are a man or a woman that fears God, a man or a woman that knows how to seek God.

 

The Bible says even though you sin, you are not expected to sin because it’s not in your DNA. But even though you sin and come shut of the glory of God, you have an advocate. Do you understand that you have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous? who is advocating on your behalf saying Father, don’t count this thing against them forgive him for he is ignorant and foolish. Do you know? This defining point is where many believers lose out on the will of God. You have been anointed, you know you are anointed, you know that God has appeared to you by His word, there is something He has asked you to do, but your defining point is the point where you no longer understand what to do, Saul did not know what to do again, do you know that the same thing that God found in him was the same thing that Saul fell from.

 

Because, if He had honored Samuel as he did in the beginning he will not offer. But dishonor came to his heart because of the people. Saul the honor he has in his heart for God and the people of God. He lost the honor that God found in his heart, God said I have found David a man after His heart, David did not lose his own. Every time he will cry to “God create in me a new heart ‘O’ God and renew a right spirit within me, cast me not away from your presence” because if I am out that’s the end. He understood, do we understand like that or we are like Saul and we will say if it has happened, it has happened, God will look for someone else. Let me continue with my life. Some of us are like that, we just feel if God’s will not okay to be done let me just continue my life.

 

But since Saul fell short, his life did not remain the same again. The anointing became a curse. And this is what happens, when you step outside the will of God pursuing your own thing and you are not going back to God for mercy, remember you are already anointed, the anointing will become a curse. The Bible says and the Spirit of God left him and a disturbing spirit. Because a spirit must be there. A disturbing spirit came into Saul; Saul became like a vagabond king. Why? Outside the will of God there is crisis. You can’t start that journey and deviate and feel you will still be fine. No! Saul is an example. So, the defining point is the point where God will be looking at establishing you. Remember what prophet Samuel said; if you had passed this test your kingdom would have been established. 1 Samuel 17, we will just read quickly that of David. 1 Samuel 17 verse 24, this was about when David faced Goliath, and it speaks of the heart of David, this was after he was anointed.

 

“And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him and were dreadfully afraid. 26 then David spoke to the men who stood by him saying; what shall be done for the man who kill this philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel? For who is this uncircumcised philistine that he should defile the armies of the living God?”

 

What are we bringing out here? This was also a defining moment in the life of David. If David had not had the heart that loved God and His people, because that was the heart that God found. That particular story was not written so that we will just feel David was a shepherd boy. It was to show his heart. David was given few sheep to take care of in the wilderness, and lions and bear-we will not say how many are they? Let them die, after they die my father will call me back home. And finally, I can be with my brothers. No! He staked out his life for the few sheep. That was the heart God found. When that heart was anointed, that heart stepped higher, and he got into that place and there was a man called Goliath defiling the armies of God.

 

The armies of God now have become like the sheep of David. Goliath now has become like the lion and the bear, and in his heart, he is looking at the man just like the lion and the bear how can you be threatening the sheep of God? And David in his heart went out and defeated goliath just like the lion and the bear and that was the heart he did not lose. Preserving as the commander of the inheritance of the Lord. God needed a man that will preserve and stake out his life for his inheritance and he found David. What is it that God has found in you? let those defining moment that God will bring your way this year show it. Are you that man that you hate to see the people of God ignorant? You hate to see them in foolishness? God is anointing you this year so that you will defend and makes sure that the people of God are filled with knowledge.

 

God will provide you with opportunities this year were that anointed heart will show forth, will be deployed. It is going to be your testing times. When you are approved, the next point and the final point is that you will get to your establishment point.

 

The Establishment Point

The establishment point is the point of your destiny where your name is synonymous to your calling. Where your name is synonymous to the will of God concerning you. David was so established by God that every king that came enthroned in Israel, David became the bench mark. They will say he did well but not like his father David. God establishes men in his will. What God will do with you in His will is not temporal, it is eternal. Because that’s the nature of God, that’s the quality of the realm in which God dwells; eternal.

 

So, when God establish you, He doesn’t establish you for a time or for a season, He establishes you forever and that’s what he did with David. There is something called the sure mercies of David. That sure mercy of David is a requirement for the fulfilment of destiny. Understand it! Even though David was not perfect, even though David made mistakes, he still pursued God because his life depended on it. When Gods judgement came upon him, and the child of adultery died, the Bible says David did not sulk and complain to God, he stood up went to have his bath and he ate. He said when I was praying, I prayed as though God will have mercy even though I know its judgment I deserve, I was praying as though God will have mercy and since he has chosen not to have mercy I will continue with my life and God looked at that heart and God consoled him with Solomon and that son became the one that sat on the throne.  

 

When we come to God and ask for forgiveness, God’s mercies when it shows up for you He won’t say I am showing you mercy but that thing you have done I will go and keep it in the cooler for you. the Bible says He erases, He blots out, He remembers no more. Understand and seek God this year, so that we can be established in His will. What is the destination? Being established.  We are not trying to just stay in the defining moment, we don’t want just stay in the anointing or in the acceleration, we don’t want to remain at the starting point, we want to get to the point of establishment where we are established, where we are rooted unmovable in the will of God. See what God said concerning Abraham when He wanted to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, He said I will not do this thing and hide it away from my servant Abraham seeing that surely, God was boasting in a man. Surely, he will become. I have seen his trajectory, he will surely.

 

God was so confident in Abraham. Surely, he will become a great nation and he will teach his children after me. Can God have that kind of confidence in us? Can our lives reflect that kind of confidence? that God, you have found me I will not disappoint you. men, women, vessels have disappointed God. When they got to the height like Saul, they disappointed Him. God said to Samuel, why are you still mourning over Saul? To tell you how Saul was to Samuel. He said I have moved on, He has disappointed me but I have moved on, that’s how God moves on.

 

But can we be like David? That says God I will hold on to you but don’t move away from me. Don’t move and leave me behind, Lord if it is drag, drag me along. Create in me aa new heart. I know the heart I have before I have been corrupted, create in me a new heart, and take not your Holy Spirit cast me not away from your presence can that be our heart cry as we pray to the Lord this morning, that Lord what you have found in me precious let me not lose it.

Word of Confession: (Optional)

Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I have sinned against the LORD God - in the rebellion of my heart, I have disappointed your expectations on my life. I have fallen from Your grace and followed wrong influences around me. Today, I retrace my steps back to you - and I ask that in your mercy you accept me as your son and give to me (again) the promise of the Father - the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, please, come and make my heart your home, and from there rule in the affairs of all men. In Jesus Name I have prayed.
