God's Lamp

Scripture: Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.


How many of you like the dark? I don’t especially like it. I live in the country and it is really dark sometimes. If I come home after dark, or when I go to work in the mornings, and there is no light on, I cannot see where I am walking. I am afraid I will either step on something (like a snake or a frog) or trip over something and fall. Animals can see well in the dark, but people don’t see as well in the dark. You can get night vision goggles, or you can do like I do and carry a flashlight.

The flashlight helps me to see where I am walking. It not only shows me where to put my feet, but it also shows me where not to put my feet.

(Recite Psalm 119:105.) Does anyone know what this verse means to us as Christians? God’s Word gives us instructions and shows us where to walk and where not to walk; just like the flashlight does for me in the dark. His Word guides us in the dark world.

Lord, thank you for your Word. Please help me to learn Your Word and to use it always as a lamp to guide my path. In Jesus' name, Amen.
