But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” - 1 Samuel 16:7
This verse references when Samuel was to anoint one of Jesse's sons as the next king. He approached each of these men thinking, surely this is the one God wants to be king! He looks how a king should look! But God kept saying, “Nope, not him.”
God had chosen David to be the next king. Even though all of David's brothers were older, bigger and stronger, God chose him!
God doesn’t see you the way you see yourself in the mirror. He’s looking at your heart.
What will He see?
