And when He had removed him, He raised up for them David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.’ Acts 13:22
In the past weeks, I had experiences with head hunters. Head hunters are recruiters for companies who are in need of top caliber employees. They do not work for the company you might end up working with but they work in behalf of that company. Let me explain. They would browsed up professional networks to scan prospective candidates who could fill up the position inevitably. They would go after people who have good scholastic records and appropriate experience required to the job description. No, the chosen candidate won’t work for them, the head hunters are only bridges. However, since they keep and maintain a network of experts in their hands, they are the ones who scout the labor market. Experience tells, if they get you, they will not negotiate for you, you will have to negotiate for yourself. The head hunters get you, but you have to pick yourself for things to workout. So you must have the intellects to make things right, after all, it was your head their after.
Well, God is not after our heads. He is after our hearts. When He raised up David to fill the position of a King, He looked at his heart not his head. He scanned David’s heart and found it was after God’s heart. He found the would be great king to be a man ready to do His will. Jesus recruited a bunch of fishermen as His first disciples who were merely blue collared workers. God does not count on your education or achievements for you to follow Him. God is not after your education, He is after your devotion. Jesus might have saw the fishermen’s hearts which were willing to leave everything behind to walk with Him and to be with Him. God is not after experts, He is after followers. When God chose Paul, He did not leave him in the middle of the race. The Spirit empowered Paul to finish the game. God does not choose who deserves, He choose people who serves.
So friends, let’s clear up our heads, our God is after our hearts.
