Elijah | God’s Overcomer

Rob Norman: Elijah | God’s Overcomer

Elijah was God’s overcomer. Overcomers ultimately defeat their opponents against the odds and often ‘steal victory from the jaws of defeat’.  Circumstances don’t inform the overcomer’s decision to persevere, sometimes they even rise-up as circumstances take a negative turn.

David | God’s Heart

Rob Norman: David | God’s Heart

God’s own testimony is that David was a man after his own heart. What an amazing commendation! David, who lost the battle with infidelity when he committed adultery with Bathsheba and had her husband killed in an attempt to cover his sin, was deeply flawed and sinful, yet God said he was ‘a man after my own heart’. This statement says as much about a Holy and merciful God as it does about David himself.
