Know who you serve.

Looking at the previous blog, David was able to be identified as Israel's new leader because his heart was to serve God for all the right reasons. As we see in 1 Samuel, Saul served for all the wrong reasons and God abandoned him.
Do you know who you are serving? Where is your heart?

Colossians 3:23-24 "Whatever you do, work at it will all your heart, as working for The Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.  It is The Lord Christ you are serving". 

Even service to God can become an idol. What I mean, service to God does not substitute for an intimate relationship with Him. It is an outcome, or more commonly know as fruit, "They will be know by their fruit". Mathew 7:20.

I understand that I can and will fall, but when I do, God is there to life me up. God's grace provides the opportunity for repentance or change my direction away from my sin, not continue on the path toward it.

Knowing God comes through serving Him and serving Him comes through knowing Him.
