God Is The Light
The other morning I tried to maneuver in the dark through my family room. I found out that this was not a good idea. BAM I smacked my leg into a large ceramic pot used for recycling newspaper. OUCH. That hurt. And I developed a painful bruise on my shin.
Walking in the dark can be treacherous. Now I use a flashlight or turn on the lights.
A Lamp To My Feet And A Light For My Path
We find one verse about light in Psalm 119, verse 105. It says:
Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
And in Psalm 119: verse 30 we read:
The unfolding of your words give light, it gives understanding to the simple.
Recently I have started to lead a Bible study using the SIMPLE Method of Study which allows us to go deeper into a verse or passage. I found it fascinating that this Psalm says it gets understanding to the simple. I found this way of studying the Bible gave revelation to us.
Using only 1 verse everyone came away from our study both times with a specific life application. And each one of us received a different message. How wonderful is that!
Learn To Live The Word
The POWER of God’s Word still amazes me. I knew I had learned much from my own personal study using this method but watching God speak to 7 different women enthralled and excited me.
I would encourage you to go deeper into the Word – don’t just read it and learn it – learn to LIVE it.
Until next time, let the Bible be a light to your path.
