Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. I’ve promised it once, and I’ll promise it again: I will obey your righteous regulations. I have suffered much, O LORD; restore my life again as you promised. LORD, accept my offering of praise, and teach me your regulations. My life constantly hangs in the balance, but I will not stop obeying your instructions. The wicked have set their traps for me, but I will not turn from your commandments. Your laws are my treasure; they are my heart’s delight. I am determined to keep your decrees to the very end. Psalm 119:105-112 (NLT)
Where Are You Going?
Do you know where you are going? Do you know what steps to take and which steps to avoid? Are you sure of what is the right path for you to follow? Do you know how to keep your life on course? What will keep you together when much of life is falling apart all around you? What will you do, how will you respond, when others and every kind of evil tries to throw you off track? What will keep you in the running? What will help you to run strong and finish well? Without, your word I have no idea where I am going. I have tried to go it alone, by following my own counsel and listening to my own advice. That has not worked well for me. I have taken many missteps. I have made many mistakes. I have wandered off course. I have gotten entangled in the evil of this world. I have sinned against you. Forgive me. You are forgiven. Keep on answering the questions that I have set before you. Only your word, will keep me on course. Only your word, will keep me together when much of life is falling apart all around me. And these days, that is exactly what is happening. I can’t recall more widespread, world-wide crises, happening all at one time. On top of that, intolerance and hate are at almost unprecedented levels, at least in my life. It would be easy to become discouraged and depressed and defeated. But I am holding on to your word. Your word is encouraging and strengthening me. Your word is lifting me up. So, with a heart filled with joy, that I can’t really comprehend, I will keep on following and obeying you. I will keep on putting your word into practice. Your word will continue to have first place in my life. I will never stop listening to you. Your word will guard and guide me. Your word will show me the steps I should take. Your word will keep me on the path you have laid out for me. I know that you will help me to run strong and finish well. Yes, my word will accomplish all these things for you. Keep on listening to me. Yes Lord, I will. That will be very good.
Lord, thank you that your word is a lamp to my feet and light to my path. Your word has prevented me from stumbling in the darkness of this world. Your word has been light to my path to guide me through life. I will keep on following and obeying your word. Amen
