Psalm 34:5
‘Those who look to Him are radiant with joy; their faces shall never be ashamed.’
There is something different about people who are trusting the Lord. As we trust in Him, something about the way we look changes. There is peace and joy instead of despair and hopelessness. That’s because we don’t look at our circumstances, but look to Him in every situation.
PRAYER: Lord, I lift up my eyes, above the troubles that are around me, and I look to You. You are my hope, You are my salvation and You are the One Who comes and lifts up my head. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

“The arms of the wicked shall be broken, but the Lord upholds the righteous … They shall not be ashamed in the evil time” (Psalm 37:17, 19). God promised David, that He would be the king of Israel. But what happened in his life was contrary to this promise. David spent the next few years running for his life, living in caves, chased by Saul and his entire army. In and through all this, David sees the promise of the Lord fulfilled. God vindicates David and He is crowned the king.No matter what you see around you, no matter what confronts you, God will not let you be put to shame. He upholds the righteous. God will never put His trusting people to shame. He will keep His Word. What He promised, that He will fulfill.
