1 Samuel 16:1 – 1 Samuel 28:19
Scripture: 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
Observation: God told Samuel this right before he told him to anoint David as king. David was the youngest of 8 brothers and not the man any person would have chosen as king.
Application: This verse gives me so much hope! I’m not particularly nice looking or strong (and definitely not tall!), but I know that if I choose to seek God he can use me for great things.
Prayer: God remind us daily that you don’t look at the things people look at and give us hearts that seek you!
