Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
God’s Word lights out as we go. Like a headlight, it shines out illuminating the road we are on. It shows us the pot holes of life, so that we can adjust how we are going to not hit them. It shows us the curves so that we know when to turn and when to go straight. It shows us road signs so that we know how fast to go and be warned of what lies ahead. During the dark, hard times, it is a beacon leading us. When we learn to trust the light, it shows us which path is correct.
Jesus is our light. He lights our world. He brings light to the darkness, exposing the dark areas of our lives. He gives us hope, like a city on a hill. Jesus, lights us on a fire like a candle, so we can be lights to those around us who are in the dark. We are His representatives to those people in this world who do not know Him. Be careful not to dim this light, but instead let it burn brightly. God has us here for a reason, to share the good news about Him. We have so many people in our lives that need this good news. Share the light with them!
Dear God, I thank you for lighting my path. For showing me where to walk down the path of life, to not hit the potholes. I thank you for sending Your Son, Jesus, to be the light of the world. Help me to share this light with others. This is a dark world, desperately needing the light you offer. Help me to illuminate for You. Amen.
