TO THE BIBLE Psalm 119:19
“I am a stranger in the earth; do not hide Your commandments from me.”
The words of our opening verse today were spoken by King David. He was wise enough to know he was a stranger in the earth. His expression shows us something remarkable about his insatiable longing for God’s Word; he said, “…do not hide Your commandments from me.” Why was David so passionate about the Word of God, one might wonder? You’ll see the answer in Psalm 119:105: “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” He knew the Word would help and guide him in life; it was a lamp to give him light, and a light to illuminate his path. The entrance of the Word into his spirit gave him understanding and light (Psalm 119:130).
The world is covered with spiritual darkness; that’s why you need the light of God’s Word to navigate your way and chart your course through life victoriously. Be passionate about the Word; let it guide and direct your steps! God’s Word is the light that shows you what reality (truth) is; that is what reveals the real you. Through the light of God’s Word, you see the beautiful things God has deposited in your spirit. You see that you’re more than a conqueror, and that nothing is impossible to you.
There’s so much glory and beauty inside you, but you can only see these good things under the light of God’s Word. God’s Word is the true light. As you study and meditate on it, your path in life will be flooded with light, and you’ll keep growing from glory to glory.
Romans 12:2; John 8:12
Dear Father, I thank you for the glory of your Word. Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light that illuminates my path; thus, I see and apprehend the greater levels of glory you’ve ordained for me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
