Verse of The Day : They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. Psalms 34:5
Thought of The Day : The more you look unto God the more you are transformed; and the more you are transformed the more you are glorified.
LISTEN : God is a shield for His people. He is the restorer of hope. With Him your destiny is secure and your future is full of blessings. He doesn’t abandon His own, or allow them to be buried in miseries. His hands pull up the downtrodden and places him or her in the palace. God is as reliable as His words. The humble look unto Him always, and were not ashamed. Our theme verse says,
“They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.“
Beloved, what you focused on determine what you will attract. The question is, where are you facing? Who is the object of your focus? If you must not see shame, you must look unto God. When your eyes are on Him your life will glow in His glory. God shines His light on those who trust in Him, and changes their shame to fame, and their disgrace to grace. The Bible says,
“Instead of shame, you will get a double portion;
instead of humiliation, they will rejoice over the land they receive.
Yes, they will possess a double portion in their land and experience lasting joy.“
My dear, do you believe God’s word concerning you? That’s the starting point for a glorious walk with God. Speak and believe what you want to experience. However, you must fix your eyes on God if you want to experience more of Him. Besides, you must be humble in all respect and the LORD will lift you up in due time. The Bible says,
“Humble yourselves therefore under
the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.”
1 Peter 5:6
Beloved, receive your lifting, and let all insults and shame be terminated this season, in Jesus’ name. Henceforth, walk in the power of God’s presence and don’t be intimidated by circumstances around you. Be wise!
