A seismic shift has happened in the hearts and minds of people. It is a hidden work that has taken place, for it is the glory of God to conceal a matter but the glory of kings to search it out (Proverbs 25:2). God has concealed this change in the hearts of men and women, but it will be seen when God pours out His goodness and mercy upon all flesh. Once the outpouring happens, the evidence of this hidden heart alteration will be visible for all to see.
We have seen “the prodigal son” heart in people, so we have been taught that this is how people act when God pours out blessings on them. The prodigal son (Luke 15), took his inheritance and left his father’s house, squandered his money on riotous living and ended up broke. There is story after story of “famous” people and “family” members who have done this. This is why we are familiar with this lifestyle whenever someone gets blessed. But I would propose to you, that a seismic shift from “the prodigal son” heart posture to “a Davidic heart” posture has taken place, we just can’t see it yet.
David said in Psalm 23:6 “Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” When God blessed David with goodness and mercy, David became a dweller in the house of the Lord. He even said in Psalm 27:4 “One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple.” Get ready because when God pours out His blessings of goodness and mercy on His people, they are not going to grab the blessings of God and leave the house of God, they are going to become dwellers, beholders and builders of the house of God.
We are about to see the spirit of wisdom and revelation; mercy and goodness; poured out in such a measure, that people are not going to leave the house of God, they are going to dwell in it, for their hearts have been transformed in ways we cannot see yet, but is about to become visible. Get ready to extend those tent pegs, enlarge that dwelling for God’s goodness and mercy is going to cause people to dwell not depart from God’s house. We’ve moved from “the prodigal son” to “the heart of David”.
