Light was designed to dispel darkness. In the beginning when it was originally created and now also. No matter if the light is an artificial source such as a lamp, flashlight or candle, or if it be the illumination of the sun; all light’s purpose is to shine and make known what one normally wouldn’t be able to see in the dark.
The writer of Psalm 119:105 declared, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Traveling the course of this world can at times get a bit tricky. Navigating through the winding roads of decisions and choices can be daunting. But then, the opening up of God’s Word brings that which was once obscured into the open, revealing the path to follow if it is used.
How oft do we forget when it comes to the cares of this life; when we come upon a fork in the road, there His Word shows the best course of action? 2 Timothy 3:16-17 shows us, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” God’s Word is the answer to all. Every question, every choice, every pondering of the spirit finds an answer covered in the “inspiration of God.”
Where the Word is allowed to operate understanding has a chance to thrive. Psalm 119:130 says, “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding to the simple.” Be reassured that God’s Word can illuminate your life. God’s Word can open up your understanding and help you find your way. Trust that God’s Word gives light today!
