Day 15 | Psalm 119:105

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. | Psalm 119:105

The other night I stubbed my pinky toe (yes I must emphasize pinky toe because in my opinion it is the most painful when stubbed) while getting out of bed. If I had just turned my light on I would have realized that my bed post was in the way and I could have avoided the tremendous amount of pain that followed. Okay, I may be exaggerating just a bit,

but it hurt!

As I was thinking and praying over this passage, I quickly remembered this incident and how easily I could have avoided hitting my foot had I just turned the light on. How often have we stumbled through life’s obstacles and challenges and gotten hurt when all we needed to do was

turn to God’s Word?

God’s Word is our lamp in a dark night. It gives us direction, prevents us from stumbling, keeps us on the right path, and leads us to Him.

Can you imagine walking through a dark forest with just a lantern or flashlight? It would give you enough light to take one step at a time. God’s guidance is similar in that He will take us to our final destination,

one step at a time.

He may not always reveal what forks are in the road ahead of us, but if we depend on Him to guide us, He will lead us through this dark world. His word gives us the ability to depend on Him in every circumstance that comes our way.

The Word of God provides us with guidance, clarity, and the answers we struggle to find when we turn to the world or to our friends. Through His Word we can see life from His perspective – rather than from the view of the world or even ourselves.

Don’t neglect the very light that
has been freely given to you.
It will lead you directly to where you need to be.

A few years ago, a friend of mine encouraged me to pray through Scripture. It is one of the best ways to turn His light on. Open His word, meditate on it, and pray through it. Ask God to open your eyes and lead you through this dark and lonely world.

Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law | Psalm 119:18

One thought on “Day 15 | Psalm 119:105

  1. Ahh, such a great verse – one that we often overlook because of its familiarity! Jenie, thanks for the reminder that this is a step-by-step process. I always seem to forget that. I just need to know how to take that NEXT step – not the 15 steps coming up. Such a hard thing to do in today’s society where planning and prepping are “vital” for success in anything! It’s hard but necessary and definitely something I need to remember in this season of life. Thanks for sharing, Jenie! ❤
