But The Lord said unto Samuel (he is speaking of the future king David’s brother, Eliab),
Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him; for The Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but The Lord looketh on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7
What does God see when he sees my heart?
Does my heart turn away from Jesus when he comes knocking?
Do I lock my hearts door and tiptoe away hoping that he will forget he knocked?
Do I remember that he is God
And I am not?
Does my heart crave his presence?
Do I meditate on him day and night?
Do I need to tell my heart to turn around
And face the one who redeemed it?
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalms 46:1
