But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (Samuel 16:7, NIV)
In a world where we are constantly surrounded by social media we can very quickly begin comparing ourselves to other people. If you are someone lacking self confidence it is easy to feel small especially in the day that we are living. I am so thankful that God looks beyond the surface and sees what is in our hearts. We do not have to be the cutest or the smartest – we just have to be followers of Him. David was not the first pick for king by the world’s standards and yet God specifically chose him and He will do the same for us!
Prayer: Help us to see ourselves the way that you do. Allow us to be confident in our call. In Jesus name, amen.
