- Embracing God By Declaring our Love for the Lord
Date: Sep 4, 2011 | Passage: Psalm 18:1
Series: The Life of David in The Psalms
David's whole testimony declared that it doesn't take perfection to please God. But to please God we do have to experience God’s grace - and David's entire life was covered with grace. For he was imperfect; sometimes David flat out failed the Lord while at other times he was fearful, depressed, or troubled. But God always looked upon him not as he was, but as he would be. The Lord saw his heart, knew his deepest desire, and forgave all the rest.
