The Mask Really Hurts!

“But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

The Mask Really Hurts!
Daily: 27 May 2016

“But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7

It should be sobering to realise that you can hide much from people around you, even your loved ones, but there is nothing you can hide from God. In our text today, Samuel was looking at the outward characteristics of Jesse’s son as a potential future king of Israel when God says these words to him. Even though this was said so many years ago, it is as true now as it was then.

Sometimes our intentions are dishonourable but God sees what is in our heart. Do you try to put on a mask for Him? God sees all and He knows all. Be genuine in your belief. If you don’t understand something, learn to understand it. If you don’t believe something, find out the truth and believe that. The truth will take root in your mind and your heart and the fruit you bear will be a testimony to what you really believe and think.

Prayer: Heaven Father, please help me to live a genuine life that glorifies and honours You. Help me to be honest with those around me.
Amen
