Commentary from Pastor Mike White:

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” – 1 Sam 16:7

How many times have you heard somebody doubt you? You’re not big enough! You’re not smart enough! You’re not strong enough! You can never do that!

God does not see as man sees. Your resume does not matter to God. Your past does not determine your future. He is willing to move heaven and earth to establish His purpose in you!

Let the haters hate, and the doubters doubt. Let the talkers talk, and the balkers balk. No matter the odds, you are qualified in the name of Jesus. God calls you fit to establish His kingdom when you call on His Son, and allow His Holy Spirit to work through you!


Father, thank You for always working through me. If You say it, it will be done. Your word matters more than anyone else’s. Increase my faith in Your promises!
