"The Real Deal"

I Samuel 16:7 – 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.

Let God check it out!  You’re looking at it from the outside.  God knows the real deal.  The job seems perfect, but God knows whether the job is for you or not.  Damon says all the right words; but God knows if he’s really the one!  That blue Acura TL looks so good in the showroom; but God knows a lemon when He sees one.

Are you facing a decision?  Is there a choice you must make? Don’t base your decision on what it looks like or how it sounds.  Give it to God; let Him check it out.  All that glitters ain’t God!  God told Samuel, when Eliab approached, he’s tall and he looks good.  But, I have refused him.  There may not have been anything really wrong with Eliab’s character; but he was not the one for God’s assignment.  The job may be a good job, but it’s just not the one for you.  Damon probably has the potential for being a good provider, but, he’s not the one that fits you.

Let God check it out.  It may hurt for a minute; but it will do you good.  Then again…maybe it won’t!  Maybe your choice IS God’s choice.  But, let God check it out.  Are you willing to risk your future, your well-being on this decision?  There may not be any visible flaws or deficiencies. But, let God check it out.  Don’t ever make a decision without hearing what God has to say about it.  God sees it from beginning to end…from the inside out.  You only see the outside.  Do you trust God’s choices for you?  Do you believe He wants what is best for you?  If you do, then give God the liberty of approval.  Let God check it out…
