Your Word is a lamp to my feet, and a light on my path. – Psalm 119:105
Today’s Devotional was written by:Tim Hicks
In my house, we have some things that never seem to move (couch, table, etc.). In the middle of the night I can (while half asleep) make my way through the house with no difficulty. Well, that is, most of the time I can do so. What throws me off is that random shoe or computer bag. Those tend to trip me up if I try to traverse the house in the dark. God’s Word is that simple night light that allows us to see random things waiting to cause us to trip or fall. Having that light makes life so much better.
Read this verse in context: Psalm 119:105-112
Your word is a lamp before my feet
and a light for my journey.
106 I have sworn, and I fully mean it:
I will keep your righteous rules.
107 I have been suffering so much—
Lord, make me live again according to your promise.
108 Please, Lord, accept my spontaneous gifts of praise.
Teach me your rules!
109 Though my life is constantly in danger,
I won’t forget your Instruction.
110 Though the wicked have set a trap for me,
I won’t stray from your precepts.
111 Your laws are my possession forever
because they are my heart’s joy.
112 I have decided to keep your statutes forever, every last one.
