Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. – (Psalm 119:105, NLT)
Your word is like a lamp that guides my steps, a light that shows the path I should take. – (Psalm 119:105, ERV)
Truth’s shining light guides me in my choices and decisions; the revelation of Your word makes my pathway clear. – (Psalm 119:105, TPT)
When we seek God and study His word, the path He has paved for us is made plain. Though it will not necessarily be an easy road, He will be faithful to light the way and remain present beside us, before us and behind us, to strengthen, support and guide us with every step that we take. Right now, I am leaning into His promises, as I know that He will never leave me, nor forsake me, even when the road becomes rough. His light is the wisdom required to navigate difficulties well. May we turn in trust to the One who is faithful forever, as He has given us His word to guide and show us the way we are meant to go.
The word of the Lord,
Is a lamp to lead;
Lighting our pathways,
Direction we need.
In spaces where all,
Seems dark or unclear;
As we seek the Lord,
He shows us He’s near.
Near with His wisdom,
Strength, hope, love and grace;
His light to show us,
Our steps each new day.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are faithful forever. Thank You that when we seek You, we find You. Thank You that You are a light unto our path and a lamp unto our feet, showing us which way we are meant to go. Forgive us for our times of wandering in the darkness of our own distress, rather than turning to You. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would seek You and listen to the truth You set in our hearts through Your word and Your Spirit within us. Show us how to love those around us in a way that offers light, hope and love in places where each seem absent. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we trust You to light our path by listening to Your leading. Amen.
