Psalm 119:19 I am a stranger in the earth; Do not hide Your commandments from me.
This world is not the home to Christians. We are strangers, pilgrims just passing through. When you are close to home, you know the way around. You do need a guide to lead you around. However, when you go to a place you are not familiar with, you need some help to get around. Since this world is not our home we need God’s help to lead us around.
That is what we find in God’s Word. It is a road map to guide us through life. It helps us find our way in this dark world. There a lot of traps and snares here, things that will affect our walk with God. The devil wants to interrupt our walk down God’s path. He wants to divert us from growing close to God. By reading the Bible, we find direction as we go. God has not left us alone. He left His Word as a guide for us.
Dear God, thank you for Your Word. It is a road map for my journey of life. It gives a direction for us to go and leads us through life’s hard choices. You have not left us alone. Help me to trust Your Word for guidance. Help to me be humble, to submit to its direction. This world is not our home. Our home is with You in Heaven. Protect me from this wevil world. Amen.
