Appearance isn’t everything
“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.”
1 Samuel 16:7
God, today we come to with open hearts and open minds. We ask so much yet we give you so little, still you continually bless us. Lord, we ask that you would help us to see not only our true potential, but also the potential in others. Help us to look past their outward appearance and look deep into their hearts and our hearts. Do not allow our eyes to be the hindrance that causes us to stumble. We pray that you help us to believe in yourselves. Even your son had troubles moments before being takin into custody. He asked that if it be your will to remove the trouble before him. God he trusted you, and so do we. We know that you know what is best for us. We ask that you give us the faith of Daniel in the lion’s den, hope of Moses in wilderness, and the heart of David always putting you first. Lord thank you for your insight and wisdom, than you for your help in our everyday situations. Thank you.
