The Light Daily Devotional – The perception of God
Focus: The perception of God
The word for today
Physical appearance does not move God but the nature of the heart of men. It is not about how big and wonderful you appear to people but how large your heart is to accept and do God’s will!
“For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7b NKJV)
You will not have the right evaluation of yourself until you begin to see yourself the way God sees you. All men try their best to present themselves properly. If you must go into partnership with any man be it in business, ministry, career, or marriage; you must not be carried away with emotions, charisma, good presentation, and appearance but seek to know the perception of God about the people involved. What is hidden about a man is very open to God!
The limitation we have as humans is that we can’t see beyond what is presented to us. If not for God’s intervention, Samuel would have anointed Eliab instead of David. You will be doing yourself great harm if your heart is not large enough to accept God’s will and do it. What God will do with your life is not a function of how you appear before men but the perception of God about you.
Question For Meditation: What is the nature of your heart?
Prayer Point: Dear Lord, Enlarge my heart to accept and do your will all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Main Emphasis: Man cannot see beyond the appearance of others and the present but God sees the heart and the future!
Have a Gracious Tuesday!
