📖1 Samuel 16:7
But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look on his
appearance or on the height of his stature,
because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees
not as man sees: man looks on the outward
appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.
The World (Kingdom of Darkness) has its own standards to which man and women operate.
What would it be like to wake up one day and see commercials with these amazing people who have hearts of Gold trying to sell us their products? Or since we are so self crazed your influencer numbers would be sky high based on the appearance of your heart and not the appearance of your body or your face?
God wants us Healthy! Heart- Mind- Soul- Spirit- Body.
He doesn’t care to much about outward beauty because that isn’t what he looks at to measure if we are usable for his Kingdom!
To be useable to the World’s system you may have to have perfect teeth, skin color, texture, height, shape, etc.. but who wants to rule in a kingdom that is going to end? God’s Kingdom is eternal!
God’s only standard is to repent of our selfish nature- accept his son Jesus who washes away our sins and makes us new. We are now acceptable, called, and equipped for his Kingdom!
No ascetics, runways, no masks, no countless perfect selfies that are filtered and airbrushed to be accepted for the job! Phew what a relief! We just say yes to Jesus and invite the Holy Spirit to start transforming us from the inside out. Heart- character- whole wellness, because after all he calls our bodies temples of the Holy Spirit! So, we shouldn’t neglect them and we should not put toxic things inside them because toxic has a shelf life and we do live in a plant – seed- harvest eco system, or what you would call cause and effect!
That is why each choice we make is costly and valuable.
So let today be a new day!
Let today be a day to renew our minds! Let us cast off every evil lie that has exalted itself above the Word of Truth! Let us make peace with striving for Worldly acceptance and be brave enough to cast our cares on the Lord and seek this Kingdom lifestyle that will not lead to slavery, destruction and decay, but FREEdom, light, love, life abundantly!
