Within twenty minutes of reading that article, I came across another with the apposite biblical passage. From 1 Samuel, 16:7.
Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for the Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.Which brings to mind William Cowper's God Works in Mysterious Ways which includes
God moves in a mysterious way;
His wonders to perform;
He plans His footsteps in the sea,
and rides upon the storm.
