Yesterday I had lunch with a dear friend to celebrate a milestone birthday! During our conversation, she shared with me that she had just finished reading through the entire Bible for the first time in her life. I also had read through the Bible in a year during 2013 for the first time in my life, and it was so fun to share what we had learned. I loved listening to her takeaways, from thinking about the Babylonian captivity, seeing God as Sovereign Lord and the Lord of hosts, sharing about God who answers our cries, etc.
It was exciting to see again what time in God’s Word does for us. This verse came to mind this morning:
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105 (ESV)
Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible and focused on God’s word, law, testimonies, etc. They are beautiful and life giving and light our way. Truly His Word does provide light to our paths and is a lamp to our feet giving us much-needed direction in our daily walks of faith and life.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, please help us to prioritize time in your Word each day. It is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, showing us the way to go. Thank you for giving it to us and for the freedom we have to access it and read it here in our country. Let us not forget this gift and let us look for ways to give it to others and encourage others by it. Thank you that it is living and inspired, able to change us and guide us by the power of your Spirit. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
