Look To God and Become Not Ashamed – Psalm 34:5

They looked to Him and were radiant;
and their faces will never be ashamed.


Pay close attention to the instruction of the psalmist in this verse. He says that in order for one never to be ashamed, one must look to God. In other words, in order to stay on the right path, one must keep their eyes fixed on the Lord. In so doing, one becomes “radiant,” unashamed, wise in their dealings. Because of his strong faith, keeping his eyes on all things above and not below, the psalmist was divinely protected … and so will we be today. When we “look to God,” He will make sure we are protected in all ways — more specifically from those who are out to do us harm. In our current climate, it is more important than ever to be protected physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In some ways we are able to protect ourselves. But in most cases we need divine protection — from the things of this world and from a relentless enemy we cannot see.

No matter what you are going through today, take the advice of the psalmist and look to God. Trust in Him for everything. By doing so, your faith will be on full display, and it is that faith God rewards. He causes the faithful and the righteous to become radiant; to shine so brightly and powerfully from within that all darkness and despair is dispelled. The enemy flees. Similarly, if you are facing a difficult or important decision today, seek God for increased discernment, guidance, and wisdom. He knows exactly what will make you shine forth in the future. In all your ways and in every circumstance, look to Him.

They looked to Him and were radiant; and their faces will never be ashamed”Psalm 34:5.


Lord, your servant King David looked to You always and became radiant. He trusted You, and You helped him. With this in mind, we pray today that You will also be with us as we look to You for guidance. As we move forward into an uncertain future, help us to make the right decisions for our life. Help us also to practice looking to You whenever we need help so that we learn to rely solely on You more and more. Strengthen our faith and our courage, Lord. We need You, and we love You. It is in Your good and Holy Name we pray, Amen.
