“Kardiognostes” – knower of the heart
(kardia- heart, gnostes – to know/ known)
One of my favorites verses:
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.- I Samuel 16:7
God knows the heart.
I memorized that verse years ago. No one else can know us like God does. No one.
When the world, friends, and family misunderstand, or do not know, do not see… God DOES.
He is evaluating us by our hearts, not by our appearance. Unlike the eyes of man, which focus on the outward appearance, God’s eyes roam the earth for those who are faithful. His eyes are searching, and He hopes to find hearts turned toward Him.
