A Journey Through Psalm 119: Light

Psalm 119:105-112
105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.
107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.
108 Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.
109 My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.
110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.
111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
112 I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.

God’s Word guides every step.  It shows us where to go.  It lights the way to keep us from stumbling.  It helps us to go to the right places and do the right things and change course when we need to without falling.  But we have to choose to follow it.  It’s not like a streetlight that only illuminates our path for a portion of the journey, but it is something that we can take with us so we always have that guiding light.

God’s Word is there for us when we’ve committed to follow a godly path through life, and we can trust that path to lead us exactly where we should go.  His Word is there for us in those times of affliction so we will know how to handle challenging situations that come, and it provides comfort in the meantime.  It is there in times of worship as we rejoice in our great God.  It is there to keep on teaching.  It is there when attacks come, and nothing can take it away from us.

May we determine ahead of time that we will choose to follow God’s path, and may it be a lifetime dedication to always doing what God says to do.  May there be no situation that would cause us to abandon God’s way and choose another.  May it be so built into our hearts and lives that it is a part of everything we do and every decision we make, something that will be part of us forever as we follow its eternal light that never dims or fades away.
