This verse brought both encouragement and challenge to me recently. May it spur you on also!
“Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.” Psalm 34:5
As we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, there is NO CONDEMNATION (see also Romans 8:1, Hebrews 12:1-3).
Because of the Holy Spirit, we are RADIANT (see also Psalm 19:8)!
Thank you, Almighty God, for giving such good gifts. Help us to keep our eyes (perspectives, vision, plans), heart (emotions and attitude), mind (thoughts and beliefs), and body (activities, priorities, habits) fixed on You. Today’s verse reminds us that what makes us attractive and appealing to others — both physically and in character — starts and grows from looking to You. We want you to have our undivided attention, Lord! AMEN
