I'm all grown-up now, but I'm still afraid of the dark: fear, anger, frustration, all lurk in the shadows. Childhood flashlights don't work...but what will?
Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
But darkness still came: disappointment, insecurity, impatience. Perplexed, I read those words again. My eyes focused on the word lamp. A lamp sits on a table and you turn it on and off, right? How can that be of any help?
Wait, a lamp's also something you carry with you. Your Word is a lamp... If I want light to shine around my feet as I walk, I have carry His Word with me. If I hold onto His truths, my feet won't stumble on the rocks in my path.
I need the glow of God's Word to dispell the fear that I am unable to do what God calls me to do. But the words of 2 Timothy 3:16-17 encourage me:
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
How has God's Word brightened your path?
