1 SAMUEL 16:7b
THE LORD DOES NOT LOOK AT THE THINGS MAN LOOKS. MAN LOOKS AT THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE, BUT THE LORD LOOK AT THE HEART.
Brothers and sisters in the Lord, you will agree with me that it is easy to feel ordinary. We go to work, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, get up next morning and do it again and again. It feels so ordinary we may wonder if we are accomplishing what God wants us to accomplish. We may think that if we were doing a little better spiritually, we would not be in the difficulty we are in. Perhaps if we could just get a little closer to God, we would not be going through a trial. That is the way we look at things from the outside, by what is going on around us.
But that is not how God Jehovah Shammah sees it. He looks on the inside, what is going on in our heart, When God sent the prophet Samuel to anoint son of Jesse to be the next king of Israel, He told Samuel do not look at outside appearance. This means men respond to life from outside, But God says I look from inside.
Today you need to know, when people look at you and judge you by what you are going through, you need not to worry because Jehovah Shammer looks from inside. People cannot understand what is inside you, they cannot see it. God says, He knows us by name. Remember you need not to worry about tomorrow because when you are in Sunday God is in Monday and Tuesday making a way for you. Jehovah Shammer understands what people cannot understand.
