Just having a quiet time. My focus wasn’t on this verse but the Lord has reminded me of His great truth.
They looked to Him and were radiant; Their faces will never blush in shame or confusion.
PSALM 34:5 .
You see, many times we look at ourselves overly confident in our abilities, at times we look at others and feel sorry for ourselves.
We compare our paths and feelings of inadequacy are stirred.
We place confidence in man more than God. But today the Lord reminds you to lift up your eyes to him. Look to Him!
His ways are insatiable and unfathomable. He deals with us uniquely contrary to man’s standards.
