Matters of the Heart

1 Samuel 16:7 says, "For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."

I have to admit I've always been bothered when someone says, "The Lord knows my heart." Not because I have any problems with God's omniscience (He does know everything!), but because I know what's in my own heart, and that knowledge doesn't give me much confidence. Yes, the Lord knows my heart and He knows how dark it is, even though I'm redeemed.

Nathan Zacharias has a good article called "Following My Heart" that illustrates what I've just said. You can read it here.
