Your Word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.
-Psalm 119:105 (NLT)
Thoughts on Today’s Verse
We journey through a fallen world with many pitfalls, slippery places and dark foes seeking to destroy our close fellowship with our Lord and Saviour. Not only are there external difficulties and dangers but also internal failings and weakness that lurk deep within our soul, which can cause us to walk away from our ‘First Love.’ God’s Word is written to lead us away from each dark danger that crosses our path and to guide our feet into His way of peace : His wonderful light : His Spirit-led life and His eternal truth, as we move ever closer to our future heavenly home. His Word not only warns of danger but truly is a treasure-trove of precious gemstone, to be hidden deep within our heart – for its words of wisdom guides our thinking; it precious promises encourage our hearts and its perfect pattern is to be the adjudicator of our daily conduct. The Bible is the sure Word of the living God which we do well to guard within our hearts, for it lights up every corner of our lives and is God’s instrument to lead us into holiness and to guide our feet into His way of truth.
Dear God, thank You for your written Word, which provides me with such strength for today and great hope for tomorrow. As I seek to read Your Word and hide its truth within my heart day by day and as I seek to follow Your will for my life, please bring to my remembrance Your Word, as I face the difficulty and trials that lies ahead. Thank You for Your Word of light in this dark world, in Jesus name I pray. AMEN
