Psalms 34:5 – Those who look to (the Lord) are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.God’s children have a person to look unto in all situations for strength, peace and satisfaction, and that person is their beloved Lord. When their circumstances are cloudy, His face is like a shining sun with its rays of brightness and hope. When they are alone, feeling lonely and starving for love, care and fellowship, His loving and compassionate face will shine upon them. His face will give His children the encouragement they need in the midst of difficulties. When life poses challenges and difficult questions, He is there to give them answers and to solve the puzzles they are encountered with. As they look unto Him, their confusions and doubts are removed and confidence established. There is disappointment of some degree with all other persons around us. But even when all others turn us down, the Lord is out there to hold us close to Him and comfort us. If we look at the power centers of this world, they will all diminish in their power as time goes by. If we look at the hills and high places of this world, we will be frustrated because they do not have any thing that will give us lasting value and contentment. But when we look unto the Lord who is the author and finisher of our faith, He will send His grace and love to us to brighten our disposition. Our faces will shine with His bright rays of great promises. Our faces will be radiant when He sends His glory to us even in the midst of hopelessness. The strength from His face will help us to keep going forward with Him. There is no scope for shame or embarrassment when we look unto our Lord because He will never disappoint us nor will He send us back empty handed.
