Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
Psalm 119:105 seek illumination from God’s eternal Word and not from man’s finite wisdom, set your affections on doing God’s Word rather than on personal gain. The Word it is a lamp and a light. It discovers us, concerning God and our true motives; the Word illuminates that which otherwise would not have being known.
The Word shows us what is inappropriate, and could be perilous; it directs us in our vocation and in His ways. It helps us see the dark places we need to avoid in the world. The Word is a lamp that we may choice to set up; we can take the lamp of the Word in our hands for our own particular exploits.
the commandment is a lamp, and the law a light; Reproofs of instruction are the
way of life.” (Proverbs 6:23).The commandment is a lamp kept burning
with the oil of the Holy Spirit; it is like the lamps in the sanctuary, and the
pillar of fire by night that led Israel.
Let us use this light to good use not only as a light to our eyes, to see God’s revelation in His Word but to follow a path that the Lord is leading us on, a path of righteousness, and intimacy. The lamp helps us discover things that are hidden by our own selfish desires, by our own blind spots; the light reveals hidden motives and unveils dark places that trip us up, ditches on the path towards His righteousness.
“For the LORD will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being caught.” (Proverbs 3:26). God has given to us a light to our feet and to our path, to direct us in the right ordering of our conversation, both in the choice of our words for each day and in the particular use of our words, blessing or curses for each day.
That we may not speak any false words or walk down any wrong paths and get lost in the darkness of deception or the subtlety of the devil. The devil is still asking us if we are Christians disciples and can we do this or that, he is still questioning our call, our motive, our anointing to follow Jesus. “And the devil said to Him [Jesus], If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” (Luke 4:3).
The devil heard the Father say earlier in ‘this is My Son who I’m well pleased!’ (Luke 3:22) “And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”
The Word of God will helps us remember our calling and the way Jesus has called us to go, we need that light of His “rhema word” for the future path we are going to out walk.
“Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life. (John 8:12).
Let Jesus shine His light on us to fulfil our destiny in Him, that we will lead others into the knowledge of our Savior Jesus Christ, and find their destiny.
