“…the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” (I Samuel 16: 7)

God is all-seeing. He has insight, foresight, and perfect perception. God’s Mind is aware of all that is real and true and right. His judgment is clear and not up for debate. What God sees and knows is what is.

The human tendency is to assess people by their outward appearance. We look at people and things and come to conclusions based on what we see with our eyes. We make assumptions based on the outward behavior or demeanor. We often judge others—and even more harshly ourselves—based on what one may have said or done as well as by the people they associate with. We might evaluate people based on distinctions of age, gender, race, and even the choices one makes.

None of these judgments are Truth, because they don’t see into the “heart.” God knows who we are at the core. He knows what He made and He is clear on our true purpose as His expression and as His beloved. God sees All. He sees reality for He made that reality. And He sees you and me as we truly are, at the very heart of ourselves—innocent, eager, beautiful, honorable, honest, noble, wise, joyful, and full of the very Life that is pure and powerful Love.
