“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Sometimes life feels like walking in the dark. Have you ever had that experience? Of course you have. We all have. Which way do I go? Which turn do I take? Will I bump into the wall or trip over something I can’t see?
We need a light. God is that light. He is the light of life in his word. Lamps provide a small light for the next few steps. Sometimes we need a lamp. The sun provides a large light for the path ahead. Sometimes we need a large light.
God’s word illuminates the next few steps and the long path ahead. But the light of the word of God must be in our hearts to guide us on the path of life. We need that light every day. Darkness can invade our lives at any moment. If we have the light of God’s word, we will not stumble and fall.
