Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.Psalm 119:105
A Lamp For Our Feet
Sometimes walking in this world can feel like walking in a dark room. It can be difficult to see which way to go when there is no light to be found. Luckily for the Christian, we do not have to walk through the darkness without the light. God’s Word is our light. It is the lamp to guide our feet and a light for our path to show us which way to go. We do not have to guess which way or stumble through the darkness, we can see what is right in front of us.
However sometimes, even as believers, we set the light down and try it on our own. We fall and stumble even though the lamp is right beside us, waiting for us to pick it up and use it. The same can be true of God’s Word. It radiates light, but only if we choose to pick it up and take it with us. If we leave it behind, it is of no good to us. We must seek the wisdom of God in the words of His scriptures to lead us through this life. We have the manual teaching us and telling us where to go and what to do. We must choose to take that manual and use it. Spend some time in prayer today asking God to give you a desire for His Word. May it be a lamp to your feet and a light for your path.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for your Word. May it be living and active in my life. May I use it to lead and guide me. Amen.
