Don’t Judge Me!

1 Samuel 16:6-7 (KJV)

And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord‘s anointed is before him.

But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.

Many time we are judged by our appearance, socioeconomic, job status, community status, and even what church we attend.  The Lord is saying to us today, I’m not looking at your past mistakes, failures, mishaps, or disappointments.  I’m looking at your heart.  What is your heart saying???   You can’t get wrapped up in how people judge your outward appearance.  You make sure you know whats going on in your heart.  At such time like this, we do not want the Lord to refuse us.  Live a life that is pleasing unto the Lord.

Psalm 26:2(NIV)

Test me, Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;

 

My Hiding Place

Psalm 119:114 (KJV)

114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.

 

I remember playing a game called hide and seek.  Where you had to hid from the person that was counting and when they were finished, ready or not here they come.  Well, that was in the natural.  Let’s look at it from a spiritual perspective.  Jesus Christ is responsible for us.  So that makes him qualified to be our hiding place and our shield.  He will covers us when the storms of life are raging.  We are protected under His loving care.  Make sure you study your Word, because in The Word is hope and everlasting life.

Prayer:

Lord, help me grab all that You want me to.
