“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...

Blessed is the man who endures temptation (trials); for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him..
Some days it just seems that as soon as you overcome one hurdle, there are another five waiting for you. You try with all your might to remain calm and patient, and look for the positives, but as time passes and the challenges keep coming, you want to just freak out and give up.! And then you start thinking how you can get out of what you are trying to get through so that the pressure will just go away……
It’s at times like these that you need to remember not to grow weary in well-doing. There is a crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Be encouraged, hundreds of people feel just like you do some days and we can rely on our Lord to get us through. Don’t look at the whole task, just one little section at a time and you will succeed.
Prayer: Lord, help us to see the bigger picture of what we’re doing to know that You have a much greater purpose planned. Help us to remain faithful despite the obstacles.
