I Don’t See Your Hair

But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7 King James Version

The other day as I was brushing my hair, I said to myself “Joanne, this is the worse hair day you have ever had. Your hair looks terrible”. My smile started to turn into a frown when all of a sudden God spoke to my heart and said “I’m not looking at your hair. I’m looking at your heart.” God is not impressed with how we look. We don’t have to win a beauty contest. He loves us just the way we are.

He is also not impressed with our big homes and big cars. What matters to God and what touches His heart is the condition of our hearts. What does He see when He looks into our hearts? Does He see things that make Him happy or does He see things that bring disgrace to Him and make Him sad? No, God doesn’t look at our hair or our big cars and homes. He looks in our hearts.

I don’t know about you but I don’t want Him to see things in my heart that make Him sad. It is time that we stop worrying about how we look on the outside and concentrate on keeping our hearts right before God. If you have been worrying about your hair or the condition of your body, stop worrying and instead focus your attention on the condition of your heart. Be sure the things in your heart bring happiness to Him instead of bringing sadness.
