Psalm 34:5,9 (New International Version)
5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
9 Fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
Both of these verses are excellent reminders of the power of God. If we are seeking after Him and following His ways, we should not be ashamed, our faces, our spirit, should be radiant with His light!
Sometimes, though, we are not so radiant, sometimes we hide our light on purpose so we are not ridiculed or looking down upon by those around us. Why do we do that? Who is the world to judge us when we have the ONE TRUE GOD in our hearts?
Never hide your light! Never forget who you are in Christ! He has the power to protect us and give us strength, even when we don’t think it is possible; He has the power to provide for those who fear Him, who trust in Him for all things.
