19 Saul – Pride (1 Sam 13:9-10) Burnt offering David – Envy (2 Sam 11) Bathsheba Solomon – Lust (1 Kings 11) Godless wives Jeroboam and Rehoboam – Wrath (1 Kings 12)

20 Acts 13: 22 “But God removed Saul and replaced him with David, a man about whom God said, ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart. He will do everything I want him to do.” V36 “or after David had done the will of God in his own generation, he died and was buried with his ancestors”

21 Continued a deepening of intimacy Repented (2 Sam 12; 2 Sam 24) Surrounded himself with wise counsel (Nathan 2 Sam 12; Barzillai 2 Sam 19:31) Worshipped and loved God with all his heart Same can be said about other Godly people

22 To restore a relationship with Him To be intimately involved in our lives To guide us To be reconciled with us when we go astray To heal us To defeat the enemy He will not relent until He has all of us

23 Turn back to Him often Surrender to Him Admire and praise Him (What He has done) Worship Him (Who He is) Allow His presence (His Spirit) to invade us
