What God wants

Isn’t it great that God isn’t a God of status? He isn’t impressed with money, good looks, popularity or power. God is interested in our hearts. As He spoke to Samuel in Samuel 16:7, “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.” Our money, good looks, status, and positions of authority don’t impress God. He wants our hearts right with Him. As David wrote in Psalm 51:17, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart O God thou wilt not despise.” God doesn’t want all the stuff that man values. He wants us.

He wants us to come to Him, broken and repentant. He wants us to weep over our sin and ask Him to transform us. So I would like to encourage you. God doesn’t care how much money you have, where you are on the corporate ladder, or whether or not you were the prom king or queen. He cares about how much you are willing to follow Him. It doesn’t matter what the world thinks you have to offer, you can offer God your heart, and that is everything to Him.
