Radiant With Joy!

by Hazel Straub

God is good and not only hears us but also answers our cries to him. As we spend time in his presence, we get freedom from many things that have had us bound. Free from those things that vex us and with which we struggle. This comes when we seek him with all our heart, focusing on his goodness, and praising him..

Our face radiates joy because we look at God and rest in him. We do not worry but seek him. It is time to become desperate for God alone. Then we will see him answer and deliver us. The angel of the Lord protects and encompasses those who honor and reverence God. He rewards those who seek him with all their hearts.

I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me.
He freed me from all my fears.
Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy;
no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
In my desperation I prayed, and the Lord listened;
he saved me from all my troubles.
For the angel of the Lord is a guard;
he surrounds and defends all who fear him.
(Psalm 34:4-7 NLT)

  1. Just as Jesus brought calm to the storm which threatened to drown his disciples so God will bring inner peace to those who earnestly seek Him. Beautiful quote from the book of psalms!
