This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Psalm 139:2 (ESV)
Today, I am thinking about how God knows our heart no matter the circumstance.
Sometimes, I can be hard on myself when I believe I have fallen short. It’s a classic case of knowing better, yet feeling as though I am not yet doing better. This is something I especially reflected on while reading about Rahab.
I was comforted after reading Rahab’s story because I realized just how much God values our hearts.
As you may recall, Rahab was a prostitute, yet when Joshua sent two spies to Jericho ahead of his conquering army, she hid both in her house. While the spies stayed with Rahab, she talked with them about their God, saying she had heard all about their God of both heaven and Earth.
She talked with them about their God so passionately that it was almost as if she wanted their God to become her God as well.
A month later, Joshua returned to conquer the entire town of Jericho. In the chaos, Rahab and her family were spared. Hearing this inspired me because not only did God know Rahab’s heart, but He knew when she had a change of heart and began to desire to know Him better. Based on that, He rewarded her—despite her lifestyle.
Rahab’s story has encouraged me to cling to these words, and I hope they inspire you too: “You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar.” Psalm 139:2 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, be encouraged that ultimately, God values your heart above all.
