The Hidden Person of the Heart

“…man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart” 1 Samuel 16:7

Jesus was unsuspecting. You wouldn’t have thought Him to be the King of kings if you would have seen Him walking on the streets. He looked like an ordinary man when all the while He was the savior of the world. David was also unsuspecting. He didn’t look like a mighty warrior. He didn’t look like he could slay a giant, let alone defeat a lion and bear. When the prophet came to anoint the next king of Israel and Jesse brought out his strong sons, Samuel asked, “Are these all of your sons?” Jesse answered, we have one who keeps the sheep. When David entered the house, God told Samuel, that’s him.

David didn’t look like a king, but he loved the Lord with all his heart.

You may not look like the kind of woman who would be used mightily by God to impact this world for Jesus, but remember, neither did others throughout Bible history. The Bible says, God has chosen the weak things to confound the mighty. The foolish things to confound the wise (see 1 Corinthians 1:27). While everyone else is focusing on the outward appearance of things, continue to focus on letting God accomplish His work in your heart and mind. Let Him enrich you on a deep soul level so that you can enrich others and walk in divine influence. Doing this will take you farther in life than you can ever imagine!

“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear—but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious” 1 Peter 3:3-4, ESV

Prayer: Father God, I thank you for your wisdom and your grace. Help me to focus more on the condition of my heart. Make my heart beautiful like you. Make my faith strong. Make my love walk powerful. Transform me Lord until I look like Jesus on the inside and behave like Him on the outside. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Psalms 51:6; 2 Chronicles 16:9)
