Psalm 119:105 (NLT)
Your word is a lamp to guide my feet
and a light for my path.
We do not have to look very far in order to recognize the existence of spiritual darkness in our world; sin and rebellion against God is all around us. God has an enemy and since we are committed to loving God and our neighbors we have an enemy, too. Without God’s Word we would all be struggling with the darkness that surrounds us in this fallen world. However, because of God’s great love for humanity, he told us the whole story ahead of time. In Christ, we learn how to allow the Word to Light our paths and help us navigate in the darkness; we do not have to stumble or lose our way because he is the beginning and the end. Christ has been made wisdom for us. The enemy tries to lure us toward pitfalls in our path, but if we allow the Word to guide us in wisdom our relationship will rest on righteousness and our faith will focus on the work of our first Love—Christ. The darkness is lifted by the Truth, so let Truth arise in your life by living the Word and Christ in you will be a light for others.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for telling me your testimony ahead of time; I am prepared to follow. I will allow the Word to guide me on the path of Truth. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
