Looking for direction in life? Confused about the next step? Concerned about which path to take and which one not to take? If you answered "yes" God has a Word for you on this morning.
LOOK NO FURTHER!
The "Word of God" is our compass in life. It is also our guide, our helper, our deliverer, our peace, our joy, our redemption and our everlasting promise.
The Psalmist of this text declares that the "Word of God" is a lamp to his feet and alight to his path.
God has given His children the awesome privilege of praying for guidance and direction. We never have to walk this journey called life wondering which direction we should take or which one we should not take.
The light of God's Word makes things clear and visible so that we will not trip and fall into the traps and snares of the enemy.
When God’s Word becomes a lamp unto out feet and a light unto our path, He leads us in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
There is one of two ways we all can take in life. We can do it according to the Word of God or we can do it our way. Only one is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. The other is the path of darkness and eventually destruction.
The Word of God is the Christian life support, our sustaining power, our oxygen tank, our feeding tube, our guiding light and our eternal hope of glory.
The problem in the world today is that too many people's feet are not being guided by God's light because they have chosen to walk in darkness in the word of what appears to be right in their own minds.
As Christians, we must daily search the Word of God, study it, believe it and obey it for indeed it is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.
Is it your desire to be lead by God? Are you willing to let him be a lamp to your feet and a light to your path?
The Word of God is light for where we are and where we are going. It is like a lantern, which sheds light on our path, amid the darkness of the night, to direct our feet every step of the way in which God would have us to travel.
Without the light of God's Word we will continue to stumble in the dark. We will never make it to our destination because we will not be able to see our way out of where we are. It is the light of God's Word that illuminates our path.
How are you keeping your lamps burning? I can only hope and pray that is is by the leading of God's Word alone.
To walk in the light we must enter the small gate and stay on the narrow path. Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Avoiding darkness involves the daily choices of choosing to walk in the light of God's Word.
Walking in the light means disconnecting form the darkness of situations, people, places and things that hinders clear vision.
It is the word of God that equips us for God’s work. It is the Word of God that sustains us, it is the Word of God that gives life to our dead soul, it is the Word of God that scripture claims to be in the beginning, the Word that is, was and always will be. It is this Word that is a lamp unto our feet and alight unto our path.
It is the Word of God that has the power unto salvation.
It is the Word of God that has lead all of us who are saved, out of darkness into God's marvelous light.
John 1:5-7 This then is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
The Word of God is a guiding light! Are you being lead by it? Or, are you still walking in darkness?
Thank you Lord for your guiding light, for indeed it is a light unto my path.
