    David says hit heart is fixed upon God. Yet David is well know for him many failures throughout the course of his life. Despite these failure God does commend him calling him a man after his own heart. Why? I believe here is one of the reason as David said here his heart is fixed. Despite his failure David had made the decision that God was going to be his stregth, God was going to be his focus, God was going to be the one he seeks to please, and when he falter or failed that firm grip on God brought him back battered and beaten to where he needed to be. Temptations will come, failures will happen, and yes even punishment for those failures. Yet if I will decide now, not tomorrow or the next day or the next but now that God be my source of joy, of happiness. That pleasing Him become my focus and I like David remain planted pushing past the errors and pitfalls. Then like David when the end of my life comes and I meet my maker despite failure I can receive a well done from my King.

    There is no one else to praise but JESUS Christ of Nazareth, God 's only begotten Son. Its easy to Praise Him everything is going well but you have to Praise Him when they tie you to the stake. You have to Praise Him when a fire they make. Jesus delivered me from 10 years of drug addiction in 30 seconds. it 's been 34 years and I never went back.PRAISE GOD!
