Light For Your Path

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."
Psalm 119:105 (NKJV)

When things are dark you need some light. Have you ever been out walking in a field or in the forest when it got dark?  I have had that experience and there comes a point where you can't see where you are going unless you have something to light the path you are on.  You could just keep going forward the way you think you should go and hope for the best, but that is not a very wise thing to do.  Many people have gotten lost in places like a forest because they traveled in a direction that they thought was right only to realize later that they had made the wrong decision.

Some things are good for giving light and some are not.  Things like a flashlight or a candle will give you light while a chair or a pillow will not.  Having a chair or a pillow would help to make you more comfortable in the place where you are, but they will not help you get to where you need to go. Some people don't really have any light or direction for their life but they do have some things that make them feel comfortable and even secure where they are now.  But without having any actual light you may be comfortable somewhere but still in the wrong place.

God's Word will give us light and direction for our lives.  There is so much wisdom we can get from the Bible in places like Proverbs, in reading stories about men and women of God, and by looking at the life of Jesus.  The Holy Spirit will speak to us through God's Word to show us what to do and the Holy Spirit will remind us about what the Bible says to help guide us in life.  If you need wisdom and direction in your life, in any area, I would encourage you to spend time reading and studying God's Word.  God's Word will give us light for our path and direction for our life.
