The Daily Breath of God

The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7 NIV
There is always a feeling of refreshment in our life when we experience joy and describe it as feeling it with all our heart. This is not meant to be an academic statement; it is something that touches the very fiber of our being. The LORD looks at the heart. The life of God's grace is that it takes our belief in the Lord from the academic into a relationship that reaches the very soul of who we are. God’s grace impacts our heart like nothing else can (the LORD looks at the heart). In grace our thoughts along with our emotions become alive with the desire to express love, joy and kindness. Here our marriage, our children and our relationships have the great possibility of being refreshed in ways that cause everyone to rejoice and give thanks to the Lord. Today enjoy this life of his grace. Be willing to allow your heart be refreshed in his grace and peace. May he then give to you the desires of your heart as you delight yourself in him (Psalm 37:4). In this place you will find no regret or sorrow. Enjoy!
