QT 1 Kings 9:1-9

April 21, 2015

In today’s QT, the thing that I love most is that here, God, still considered David to have walked before God with integrity of heart and uprightness.

Verse 4: “As for you, if you walk before me in integrity of heart and uprightness, as David your father did, and do all I command and observe my decrees and laws,

I love this because I know David had his share of failures. His thing with Bathsheba and even murder of her husband. It’s a little comforting to know what God can still consider someone like David to have had integrity of heart and uprightness despite what he’s done. It’s alleviating for me because I too just fail sometimes, and it gets me down, and I really can’t get back up on my own. I would just lie there and drag my ass around in this thing called life. I would not be able to stand, let alone, walk, run, or soar. Today’s QT is a reminder that it’s all grace. I deserve to go to hell. I deserve to a lighting bolt down my head, but I’m still living and breathing within HIS grace and mercy. Trying to get back up on my own is not only futile and never going to happen, but it’s actually what God does not even want, or what God actually hates.

Application: be thankful for his grace and mercy, stop sucking at life, and get back up through his grace and mercy. Go to morning prayer tomorrow.
