RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL
LIGHT AND DIRECTION .
Friday, March 9th .
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path (Psalm 119:105).
No one who knows and lives by God’s Word ever gets confused in life; the Word gives you light and direction. If you have the Word of God in you, you know where you’re going; your life has a meaning; your journey is forward and upward only, because God’s Word is a lamp that brightens your path, and a light that directs you.
Psalm 119:130 says, “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” David was saying this to God. No wonder he was so guided and led of God; he was an extraordinary success. During his reign as king over Israel, Israel never lost a battle except the one he wasn’t involved in. David knew how to consult with God and receive light and direction from the Spirit.
Don’t play the guessing game with your life; receive light and direction from the Lord, through His Word. Open your spirit to the Word. Meditate on the Holy Scriptures; that way, the Word will mingle with your spirit, giving you light. If the Word of God doesn’t enter into you, there’ll be no light in your spirit. Those who don’t have accurate knowledge of the Word of God can only plunge themselves into perpetual darkness.
The Bible describes the Word as _*“…the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world” (John 1:9). Without the Word of God, your decisions will be made in darkness, and the decisions that are made in darkness can only produce more darkness, making the person’s life a labyrinth of uncertainties, confusion, and utter frustration.
God has given you His Word to light up your path, and have light through the darkness. Jesus said, “…I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12). Under that light, you don’t see shadows. Poverty, sickness, disease, death, failure or impossibilities are shadows; they don’t exist under the light of God.
The Word of God is in my heart; therefore, my heart is flooded with light; my path is continually lit. I walk in preordained pathways; therefore, none of my steps shall slide, neither do I walk in confusion, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
FURTHER STUDY: *Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of man [is] the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.
Matthew 6:22-23 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great [is] that darkness!
1 John 1:5-7 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
