But now your kingdom shall not continue. The LORD has sought out a man after his own heart, and the LORD has commanded him to be prince over his people, because you have not kept what the LORD commanded you.(1 Samuel 13:14) ESV
And when he had removed him, he raised up David to be their king, of whom he testified and said, ‘I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.’(Acts 13:22) ESV
We found that the characteristics of the heart include all corrupt and impure thoughts and intents for which purpose gravity was created to attract. As such, the gravity node upon which our soul is seated resides in the heart. The heart is distinct from the mind.
After his own heart is only ever used to refer to King David, who’s a picture of someone who has complete faith that the power of God is available to do what’s right and necessary.
And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.(1 Samuel 17:49) KJV
Sunk is a translation of the Hebrew taba, a Hebrew gravity concept. The synthesis here, in the context of a person who is after his own heart, given that the heart is the seat of the soul which is a node of gravity, is someone who’s not afraid to use the power of gravity to destroy a superior enemy.
