A Lamp For My Feet

Reading from the Book of Psalm 119: 105

105 Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.

Wandering around in the dark can be scary and frustrating!  Do you ever feel like you are wandering in life, not sure of which way to go?  God's Word is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path.  God promises to use His Word to instruct you in the way you are to go, one step at a time.

The Lord’s will for our lives is like a lamp that casts light a few feet ahead—not a high-beam headlight that lets one see way off into the distance. How, where and when, are turns in the road that perhaps neither you nor I can see ahead at this time. But if you are following God’s will for your life, moment by moment, along the path of the duty of the moment, one thing is for certain: the path will lead you to that crossroad. The light of wisdom will show you how, where, and when to go. You can't miss the turn if you're on the right path!

The key is that the lamp of your heart contains the Word, who is Jesus. That He is living and dwelling within you; that your heart is filled with the oil of faith; that you are listening to His voice, and obeying it. Then you will have the necessary light for the approaching time and the only light will be that burning flame which is in your heart.

Father God, I declare that the light at my feet is Your Light and that my help comes from You. You will not allow my foot to slip. You do not slumber or sleep, but You are alwsys watching over and keeping me. You will keep my life and watch over my going out and my coming in. Thank you, Lord.
