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 dangerous 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 weaknesses that lurk deep within our soul, which can cause us to walk away from our ‘First Love.’ But the Word of God is a lamp to guide us along the right path and a radiant light that shines brightly in this darkened world – and the opening-up of the pages of Scripture brightens our path and give understanding to the one who walks humbly before God
God’s Word is the light of truth that is written to lead us away from each shadowy danger that crosses our path. It lightens the darkness before us.. and straightens every crooked path. . His Word not only brightens our pathway; guards us on our journey through life and warns us of each lurking danger, but His Word is a treasure-trove of precious gemstone, to be hidden deep within our heart – for its words of wisdom guide our thinking; its 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, Who has told us the end from the beginning, and all God’s children do well to take heed to its precious pages, as unto a light that shines in a dark place. We do well to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest the Word of God and to guard it within our hearts, for it is a lamp to our feet, a light to our path and it brightens up every corner of our lives – for it is God’s instrument to lead us into holiness and to guide our feet into His way of truth.
Dear heavenly Father, thank You for Your written Word, which provides me with such strength for today and great hope for tomorrow. As I step out into the darkness of this fallen world, I pray that Your Word would truly lighten the way I take and lead me in the path of righteousness. Help me to hide its truths in my heart and be ready and willing to follow Your will for my life, as I face the difficulty and trials that lies ahead. Thank You for Your Word of light and truth in this dark world, in Jesus name I pray. AMEN
