Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. - Psalm 119:105 (NIV)
How often do you find yourself searching for light? If you stare at darkness it is easy to find light. Life can be dark and our response to uncomfortable darkness is usually prayer. If your in trouble or need help passing a test just start praying. The first question I ask people when they are having troubles in their life is how much time our you sending with God?
Now I don't want to focus on God being our reaction after a poor action, but the focus today is the word of God. How much time are you sending in it? God’s word is the living word and it provides light to see where you are and where you are going. We have all walked around our bedrooms or a room in our house trying to navigate the dark. We usually run into something, knock something over, or stub a toe. Darkness makes it hard to see where we our going and darkness can cause pain and messy situation in our lives that we have are not prepared for.
The answer to darkness is light, and light can be found in the Word of God. The Bible says that we should eat the scroll and meditate on the word day and night. That sounds like overkill a little bit to me, but honestly at some point you get tired of running into things in the dark. We realize the more time you spend in the word of God the greater you can see. It’s sad that it takes pain to drive us to the light, but often it takes us going through some really hard stuff before we actually depend on God. Avoid the pain that is waiting for you in the dark, and start reading the Bible that will provide light for your life.
PRAYER: Lord I have to make the decision to read your Word daily and God I pray as I do that you will allow your words to penetrate the depths of my heart and provide light so I can see where you are lighting my path. Amen.
