“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Samuel 16:7

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

God does not see as man sees.

Man looks at appearances

but the Lord looks at the heart.

.

– 1 Samuel 16:7 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

This reflection is not about others

– it is about me – and it is about the not-so-nice and not-so-good me.

.

Am I really the person I project myself to be?

Am I what I make others think I am?

.

My appearance…my mask…

may convince many to look upon me positively…maybe even to admire me.

But would their attitude be the same

if they knew what I was truly like inside, if they knew all my true character, my hidden thoughts and desires?

.

Only God knows me inside out,

and if I humbly invite Him into my heart, He will come willingly and lovingly;

He will accompany me through every corner of my heart,

including those places which I so carefully hide from others, but which I simply cannot hide from my Maker.

…and He will lovingly heal, and clean, and make me whole again.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Come, O Lord, right in to the depths of my being,

and probe, and heal, and clean this heart that yearns for You.

.

Come, Lord Jesus, I need You. Come, and make me whole.
