Light My Path
“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”
Driving along a two-lane mountain road at night, your headlights may fall on several of those yellow, diamond-shaped signs with black, squiggly arrows in the middle. They caution you that the road ahead—hidden from your sight—is about to twist and turn, following the contours of the mountain. But that’s okay; the road will still get you to your destination.
The Bible posts many such hazard signs in its pages. We’re reminded that the way ahead is filled with drop-offs, potholes, and sudden turns. Today’s Scripture reads, “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” You wouldn’t drive that curvy mountain road at night without your lights on. And you don’t want to race into the rest of your day—or your life—without the counsel, warnings, and illumination of God’s Word.
Heavenly Father, without Your Word I really would be wandering in the dark. So many times, in so many moments, You bring the right truth to my mind at precisely the right time. Your encouragement gets me through long afternoons when pain looms and anxieties roll in like fog. Thank You for lighting my path and putting a song in my heart.
