God’s Word is a Lamp and a Light
JOHN SHIRK – Psalm 119, verse 105 says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”
In a world that is darkened by sin, we need light to be able to move forward without stumbling. God’s Word here is compared to a lamp that keeps our feet on the right path. This is enough light for our next step, but not enough to see our whole journey. This requires faith that trusts in God to lead us, and to believe that His wisdom is higher than ours. The guiding impact of God’s Word on our lives is that His counsel is a light to show us where to go and what to do. His direction will lead us to productive places that bring honor to His name.
That’s today’s Mission Statement for representing Jesus in the world today.
