“But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.'” ~ 1 Samuel 16:7
I came across the above verse as I was reading an eBook tonight, and it hit me:
GOD SEES ME.
He truly sees me, for who I am and for what’s in my heart, and not for the superficial things that many people look at.
He sees the hurt that I hold inside. He sees the anxiety that rears up when I think about certain things. He sees when I feel so low that it takes great effort to complete small tasks. He sees all of this – and more.
But in light of this fact, what does He see in my heart? How clean are my thoughts? How does He feel about the motives that I possess?
Since these are the things that God is looking at, I can only imagine that it must be important for me to keep my character pleasing to Him.
I pray that I can make God smile with who I am on the inside.
Thank You, Father, for seeing through the facade that I often-times project. Thank you for not being swayed by the things that are important to man, such as what type of job I have, how much money I make, how big my house is, or how many friends I have. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. And YOU SEE ME completely…from the inside out.

And to know that He LOVES what He sees is so satisfying to me, particularly on days when the enemy is beating me up for my flaws, failings. God bless you.
