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
The nation of Israel cried out for a King! What they didn’t understand was God was their King, but instead they wanted to follow a mortal man, does that sound familiar? So because of Israel’s disobedience he handed them over to a human King, who was Saul
From the outside Saul looked perfect, he was big, strong, and handsome, this was a man everyone wanted to follow. However on the inside Saul was evil and corrupted, he didn’t truly love God, he loved himself more.
Eventually Saul continually disobeyed God and sinned against him, Samuel had continually regretted anointing Saul the King. However God was going to anoint a new King, a King who loved God with all his mind, heart, and soul
Who is this mighty King you may ask? It was a little , young, and lowly shepherd boy named David. This cant be right, how can God pick this little boy to be their King? Because God wasn’t concerned about outward appearances, he was concerned about his heart. And David loved God more than anyone else in Israel. The rest is history as David’s family line included Jesus Christ!
Do you feel like your not “good enough” to serve God? Maybe you have a disability, maybe you have a disorder or medical condition, God is still choosing You! God is examining our hearts and minds, not our physical appearances.
God still has a plan for your life, be faithful to him and he will anoint you in Jesus name! Amen!
