Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.
I have sworn an oath and confirmed it,
to observe your righteous ordinances.
I am severely afflicted;
give me life, O LORD, according to your word.
Accept my offerings of praise, O LORD,
and teach me your ordinances.
I hold my life in my hand continually,
but I do not forget your law.
The wicked have laid a snare for me,
but I do not stray from your precepts.
Your decrees are my heritage forever;
they are the joy of my heart.
I incline my heart to perform your statutes
forever, to the end.
(Psalm 119:105-112, NRSV)
Have you ever stumbled in the dark?
Ran into a couch?
Or a chair?
Or an ottoman?
Stubbed your toe and probably said something you shouldn’t have…
It is hard to walk in the dark.
But just a single match will push the darkness away, and that is the word of God for our lives.
It is a light to guide our feet and to make our way clearer.
So light the light and allow His word to permeate your life!
