2 Samuel is the story of How David Became God’s instrument through whom His larger plans and purposes were accomplished. Even though David sinned greatly, his deepest convictions surrounded his Faith in God. God based His dealings with David on David’s deepest convictions. He is even called a “Man after God’s own heart.” God did not base his dealings with David primarily on David’s momentary failings.

This is a great encouragement. You deep underlying attitude toward God provides a foundation upon wich God can build and use you in some way. The direction you are heading is more important than how far you have gone!
